Thank heavens fall is here and bringing some of my favorite chilly gloomy weather!! On a day like to today- I could use some happy weather! We just left the library prematurely because we were kicked out. Have you ever been asked to leave the library (as an adult anyway)!? 2.5 yr olds sure can be terribly difficult and embarrassing. While Ike can be a trouble maker- he rarely gets us into these types of predicaments (zeb did all the time!). In his defense- another unaccompanied toddler was majorly harassing him and so I ended up pulling Ike out of the situation because I could tell he was about to start fighting back. When I removed him from the area- he freaked- already at his boiling point. And then- while I was trying to calm him down and gather my things to leave anyway- a librarian approached and asked us to leave. We were in the toddler section- you'd think they'd give you longer than two minutes before kicking you out for a crying violation. I was not happy. I even sent them an e-mail simply stating it would have been more effective to offer help rather than ask us to leave. Kids are so embarrassing!! I'm already planning ways to pay both these little rugrats back when they are teenagers. Maybe that's why my parents reveled in embarrassing me as a teen.
Once we got outside- Zeb offered a suggestion: "Maybe we should just ignore him, mom." If only he could have offered that advice to the librarian.
