Yesterday we went to the library for story time and it went well! Did I tell you I banned the kids and I from going to the library together? Yep, that happened. We needed a break from our weekly visits and I reflected on why they seem rough and scattered to me. So yesterday we made another attempt, this time with a few new rules: the boys would stay off the computers, talk respectfully, and follow directions. I would drink my coffee, not yell, and read Caden lots of books while were were there (instead of choosing books). So yeah, we stayed mostly calm and mostly occupied the whole (2 hour!) visit.
They often raid J and my closet. 😉
