Today was library day. We got our load of books as usual. The girls each get to choose two, the older girls each choose three books at their reading level, I get to choose a few and then one person chooses something out of non-fiction (you know, to broaden our horizons). We leave with about twenty books each week.
I love it. There is something magical about sitting down with the kids and reading new stories together (well, old stories too).
Then coming home in the car, I thought I would burst with motherly love. There were my children sitting quietly looking through their books. Every so often they would stop and exchange with their neighbor.
Then the random comment would come out such as "Mom, this Nutcracker is just like ours becept ours is Barbie." I keep forgetting to document that Robyn says BEcept instead of EXcept. It is so darling. I don't correct her because soon enough she will learn to say it right and I will miss hearing BEcept.
