It’s so big for this little boy

“Wow…” that’s the first word that came out from JJ. Where was he? What made him amaze?

Last Saturday, there were only JJ and I who can went out, TT and my hubby had to stay at home because TT needed to rest. While I was thinking where should I go with JJ, JJ has already have a place in his mind. JJ and TT always love to go to Toys r us and see toys there. But it’s not the place he wanted to go this time, JJ wanted to go to another place. Where was that place?

Library + McDonald.

This time we decided to go to the Central Library. Since both of us were so hungry, we went to McDonald, near by the central library and have a full meal there before we went to the Library. Once we finished our meal, we walked to the Library. JJ was very happy. He said, “I want to read Thomas and friends’ book” Yup, It was the first time he went to the library.

Once we reached there, the first word from JJ was “WOW!!!” Yeah this library is much bigger than his little library at home. And he has already mentioned several time that he wanted to go the library like he saw in the TV. He was so amazed when he saw that the library is so big and has so many books

We went to the children’s section. Ooopss.. there was no Thomas and friends’ book! The librarian told me that most of Thomas and friends’ book are at neighborhood library. And there are some in the central library but unfortunately all those books are out.

Yes, JJ was a little bit disappointed and said “But I want Thomas and friends’ book, Mama”. Then I told him that we still can find some interesting books. There was a little book rack in the middle and we checked on that book rack, and yeah, we found some interesting books, and JJ really like it. He was so happy and took some books to read together with me. Another problem was that all tables and chairs are occupied. But then, I asked him to sit with me on the floor, on the corner. He was a little bit confuse but when he saw some people also did the same thing then he was ok and started to enjoy the books.

He really enjoyed his time and he didn’t want to go home :) We spent around two hours until someone came to me and asked me to asked my son to join coloring section in the other corner. They have this coloring section in order to celebrate the National Day which will come in few days later. JJ liked it and he enjoyed his coloring time until all his hands were colorful as well :)

When he finished his colouring, I asked him that it was the time to go home. He was ok and told me that he wanted to come to the library again with his brother along. And I told him that I am more than happy to bring them to the library again.

We have finished our library time and we went to the ice cream stall, we bought two cups of ice cream, sat down there and enjoyed them together. As usual, JJ made a joke and make some people who sat near us so happy and laugh :)

We need to buy some groceries before we went back, so I brought JJ to the supermarket nearby. He still enjoyed “the shopping time” (that what he called) until I can saw that he was a little bit tired. Once we finished with our “shopping”, he said, “Ma, we take taxi lah” Of course I was agree with him :D

We were so happy. It will be happier if we can go together with my hubby and TT. It will be our next plan, go to the library together, four of us :) I believe TT will also like it.

Yup, this library is so big for him, but that’s what makes him enjoy it. Because he loves book.

  1. What a wonderful positive parental participation time you both had!!!!
    Libraries are such a wonderful place…many libraries here have free programs of story-reading and crafts for children and other programs for adults of all ages. Is that true at your libraries?
    I enjoyed hearing about JJ’s first experience at the big library…I hope you and your family will have many other opportunities to go together. I did a blog post back in June about some activities (including going to the library) that young children would enjoy. http://viviankirkfield.wordpress.com/2011/06/03/free-summer-fun-for-families/

    1. Thank you vivian
      Yup, the Central Library here sometime have some activities. The library here have the one with the little bus and have a story telling also (if I am not wrong).
      The coloring that JJ did is to celebrate the National Day.
