Baby Lap Time, 2/8/12 & 2/9/12

I really like the flow of this particular repertoire. I cut it down to 20 minutes, from closer to 30, and read two books this time, and that seemed to work well. The Wednesday afternoon session only had 4 babies, but the Thursday session had a whopping 18 kids, with at least six of them being walk-ins who did not sign up. (I'm trying to discourage that, but I draw the line at throwing people out when they've already come in and set themselves up. I was not pleased by the one nanny who allowed her four-year-old to sit in there with no adult supervision, but it wasn't worth interrupting the story time to ask her to leave either. Better luck next week.)


Here's this week's list of activities:
