Last night Anni’s tot music class at Touhy Park “performed” for the Lake Shore Nursing center residents. By perform I mean dance around and vaguely remember any motions and words to the songs they sing every week (they are all 18-36 months) while all the moms and dads made complete fools of ourselves. It was so cute to see the kids get excited about the people clapping for them and it was special to see the residents laugh and light up when the kids were around. After our little songs they had punch, chocolate milk, and cookies for us as well. So sweet! There was also an adorably sweet soul named Marty who wheeled himself around from child to child giving them little small toys he had collected from a plastic bag. This was just what I needed to get into the Christmas spirit.
