The View From the Carpet - ALSC Blog

Guess what?? I was a guest blogger on the ALSC blog yesterday! Yep, I feel so official. Here's the start of the article with the link at the bottom.

Picture this: Parents and caregivers scattered across the storytime room floor, with wriggly, adorable babies on their laps. There’s a “hello” song playing in the background and some books to peruse. Here I sit with my own baby, eagerly awaiting the start of storytime at my library.

And let me tell you, the view is pretty different from the carpet.

You see, I used to be that librarian, there, the one greeting babies with a fluffy puppet and big smile. But after getting a few years of paid labor under my belt, I traded my storytime hours for the good life: yep, I’m now a stay-at-home-mom.

Actually, let me amend that: I’m a stay-at-home-mom-who-is-still-a-children’s-librarian.
