The best thing about the toddler story time is that the kids are not expected to sit quietly for long periods of time. Story time starts and ends with music and dancing, and there is dancing between each story. The librarian doesn't mind if the kids move around as long as they're not disruptive. At the end there are usually bubbles. Joey enjoys that best of all.

We borrowed The Lion King on VHS from the library. Yes, they still have those. Personally I like cassettes. While the quality isn't as sharp as Blu-Ray, tapes aren't as fragile as discs. So many of our movies are unplayable thanks to a certain two-year-old. Anyway, Joey enjoyed watching the movie, but doesn't really understand the whole "circle of life" concept. She kept asking where Simba's dad is...um, "He got hurt and he had to go to the hospital." I was anxious to show her a Disney movie that didn't involve princesses (although Simba is a prince -- let's not get too technical here), but this movie has some violence!
Speaking of Disney princesses, I really enjoyed this linked video from The Second City Network.
