Kids Say The Darndest Things

I had such an amazing week last week.  On Thursday, I worked the Book and Boogie at the Tot Lot on Wollaston beach. Now this was way more fun than I thought it was going to be. I became friends with this 4 year old named Rylee to start off the night. She was just adorable and loved to dance to any kind of music. So she pulled me right up in front of the speakers to dance with her. Then we took a break to go fish printing. She mixed a TON of colors together but in her eyes it was beautiful and that's all that matters. Later on, Rylee and I became friends with Lauren, Bailey, and Sam. All who joined our dance party.

Soon enough, they discovered the bubbles. Now I know that everyone loves bubbles, but they enjoyed them on a whole new level. First we played the ninja game, where I would blow the bubbles and they would try to pop them as fast as they could. Then they realized they liked getting the bubbles right in their face. So naturally, they all lined up and I would blow the bubbles right at them. Sam enjoyed the bubbles the most. He was only 2 years old so he really didnt like talking to anyone. I tried everything and no matter what I just couldnt get him to smile. Finally, when I blew the bubbles at his belly, he started giggling and giggling and couldnt stop.

By the end of the night, Rylee had to go home and she really didnt want to. I found a little toy for her on the table and said, "here you can take this home with you". To which she replied, "I don't really want that. I want to take you home with me". No matter what anyone says Rylee is my new best friend. Lauren also had trouble saying goodbye to me. Her goodbye was very sad. When I handed her over to her dad, he told her to wave goodbye. She reached towards me and started screaming and crying. I felt so awful because I couldn't stay with her. But at the same time, I know that I made an impact on her. If I was just some random lady working at a table she would have had no problem saying bye. But since I interacted and played with her she say me as a friend. And I her. This job only makes me love kids even more than I already do and further encourages me to become a teacher.
