A Proud Moment

After library story time last week, I brought the Agents and Resident Cousins out to the adjoining playground.

As I passed sunscreen around to all the moms that had forgotten it, one of the moms said,"Look at her -- she's here with four kids, and she is so calm."

I assumed that the library moms thought of me as the lady who can't control her kids -- one rolling on the floor sucking on a toy, one banging on the catalog computer, one hiding under the puzzle tables, and the fourth wedged between my elbow and hip with drool running down his face.

And they probably do think that. But they also know that I come prepared with sunscreen, water bottles, snacks, bandaids, and changes of clothes.
