With three sick kids, we've spent most of the week at our house. Okay, ALL of the week, minus an hour trip to the doctor's office on Tuesday, and a 45 minute trip to the library today. I have seen nobody except my husband and children since....Monday. Oh, no, sorry, my mom stopped for twenty minutes the other morning. I just keep telling myself "My ministry is my family, My ministry is my family." Yeah. Some days I feel it more than others! Oh the 'other' days, I just make sure I have some extra chocolate chip cookies on hand :)
So, anyway, since the library was the highlight of today, I thought I'd share a few funny things that happened while we were there:
1. Eli brought me a book and asked me to read the book 'out loud' to him. I took it in my hands, and was mortified when I looked down and saw that it was called "What color is your underwear?" It was a kids book all about animals in their underwear, but still! I had quite a job convincing him that mommy would NOT be reading this book out loud in the library!
2. When I got up to the desk, we had a huge stack of books, as normal. I was over-seeing the checking out of the books, with one eye on my two older children, sitting in chairs beside the desk, and one eye on Noah, asleep in his car-seat beside me. An older lady was standing beside me and said ''Awww honey, do you have a daycare?" *snicker!*
3. When we were finally finished, I had to get two toddlers out the door, a baby in a car-seat, my purse, a HUGE bag of heavy books, and a smaller grocery sack full of books. The librarian looked at me in sympathy and said "Oh, and, um, I'll help you to your car!" When I thanked her, she said 'Don't worry about it, I have kids too...had kids...mine aren't this small anymore...of course, there were never this many....or this close together....but anyway!" LOL
