First of all, Ryan & Kaylie are all better but Mommy & Daddy seem to be fighting off a cold now. Thank you for your get well wishes.
Second, I took the kids to the library by myself for baby storytime. I've been trying to do it for the past 2 weeks but we've been sick. It went really well and totally different than what I had envisioned. I envisioned them running around tearing books off the shelves in the children's section, tantrums, and maybe even some escaping from the section--just utter chaos. Well, they hold the baby storytime in an enclosed room (looked like it could be used for conferences or something) so that was one Phew off my list. I knew they wouldn't be running off and out of the section and no books to throw off shelves. It was held in the lower level of the library which means we don't need to climb stairs or use the elevator to get into the library. I won't need to use the stroller to get bring them in. Next time, I am going to attempt to hold their hands going into the library or maybe test out the backpack harnesses. We'll see.
The story time was great. It is only a half hour and in that time the librarian (who is pregnant with twins BTW) read three short books interspersed with songs/fingerplays. After, the kids got to play with balls, stacking cups, and some musical instruments and socialize with other kids. Best of all, it was free and got us out of the house. That's where we'll be every Monday!
