Bouncing Babies at Bookmarks

Monday, June 17, 2013

Welcome to another largely plotless episode of the Poppy O. Show.  Poppy and I went to this thing today called Baby Bounce Basics.  It takes place at a branch of the Dallas Public Library called Bookmarks.  This is of course the branch of the library that's in the mall, it still counts though.  Why wouldn't the library be in the mall*?  

There was this nice lady named Kim leading the children and their mothers (clad exclusively in stretchy exercice-wear) in predictably commonplace song including the itsy bitsy spider, twinkle twinkle little star, happy birthday, humpty dumpty, and the like.  Poppy and I went from comfortably numb to apathetic somewhere around the third song – at which point Poppy stopped shaking her egg shaker instrument.  

I got through the second half of this 20 minute gathering by staring at the escalator imagining how funny it would be to have Matt place Poppy on the descending escalator with me down at the bottom of the escalator shooting a video.  

I wonder if she'd sit still on that moving step...


I guess Poppy and I are just spoiled from Music Together where one never hears these cliché nursery songs sung by questionable cover bands.  Nope, at Music Together we sing original songs like Betty Martin, Hippity Happity Hoppity and Round Robin.  Betty Martin is our fave this semester.

*It makes sense that the baby library is at the mall.  As a modern mom, I am generally more comfortable with material items than I am with babies.  And judging by the sizable stroller crowd at the mall library today, I'm not the only one.

  1. Honest diapers were used by the hospital where my baby was born. I love these diapers! I've tried different brands and have been disappointed with the performance of the diapers since they never held as much as honest diapers.
