Sometimes I’m surprised that we really have five children. Are all of those cute hats plus the darling in the stroller really mine?
They even quietly waited their turns to hand in their summer reading logs and pick out a free book. Princess was the loudest one with her screeching and I loved how the sweet librarian said, “She loves to sing, doesn’t she?”
Potatoes in the blue hat immediately camped out right there at the Information Desk to read every single word of his new Little Critter book before moving on. (Oh, wait! I forgot he wants his new name on here to be Birdbeak. I’ll have to get used to that one…)
Bubbers in the black hat asked if they had any snake books, but settled for a silly science experiment book instead.
And Scooters in the khaki hat hoped for a Harry Potter book of his own, but found another fantasy novel with magic. Then he volunteered to help little Joo-Jee in the orange hat pick out a Curious George book.
Things got a little dicey after that with little Joo-Jee insisting he needed to use the potty, but then sneaking a turn on a computer and trying to empty out an entire dispenser of hand sanitizer onto his hands while my back was turned and leaving a foam trail of it behind him that I didn’t know what to do about. He also didn’t appreciate Bubbers trying to help him in the bathroom and let us all know about it.
But, overall, it was a great trip to the library with my five children. I loved the sweet librarian who helped us and then smiled at me. “It’s so wonderful to see such a big family of great readers!”
I thanked her and realized she was right. It is wonderful!
