Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes Toddler Lap Time, 3/1/13
Wow, this was a wild group! The Friday session is normally very tame, but it was bigger than usual, and we had one little guy who just could not keep his hands off the other kids' faces! There were a lot of tears and angry grunts and not-gentle pushed, and we ended early because the chaos just got to be too much. I let all my books go out on Thursday, so I had to read different ones for this session, but they worked just as well.
