a card of her own

Since Amara was a newborn, Dad2Amara and I have read to her.

I actually started a bedtime ritual with her while I was pregnant.

Lola2Amara taught me early on the importance of reading.

And I wanted Amara to grow up appreciating all literature.

So when she asked me for her first library card, I was more than willing to oblige.

As we stood in line at the circulation desk, she chattered on with excitment.

When they hand her her new library card, Amara cheered.

And as the librarian told Amara she could keep her book selections for three weeks, she squealed with delight.

I'm proud Amara loves reading that much.

But she expresses her happiness quite vocally.

I guess I need to teach her a bit more about the rules of the library.


  1. Coincidentally, D. got his first library card this past week end. He was so proud.
    They also gave him a gift certificate for a free slice of pizza and a free swim at one of the city pools.
    S. is bitter that no one ever offered those things to him. And he, now ten years old, currently owes $23 dollars in fines, which has to pay himself.

  2. That's a great idea. My kids love to read and having their own card would make the library more fun. Have a great weekend!

  3. Congratulations Amara on your first library card. That's quite a milestone.
