It brings out the grrrrrrr

the library

Does the library do this to anyone else?
The kiddos go banshee-style crazy about half of the time?

Last week.
Last Friday I took the kiddos to the library.
Books were looked at, decided on.
Movies, yep.
Fish tank, you betcha.
Every single activity type of anything was played with, looked at, explored.
But then, it hit the fan.
Major freak out, screaming temper tantrums.
Empathetic and judgmental looks doled out by passersby while we head out.
Thank goodness for dear friends who are there to lend a helpful hand.

Same activities checked off the list:
fish tank
Today though, muy bueno.
We went with friends and the kids had a blast!
Only a slight meltdown after check out, but hey, I've got a two year old, I expect such things.

Well, it's a mix of the two.
There is something {something in the air?} that brings out the wild in them.

Does this ever happen to you?
Maybe it's not the library, but somewhere else?
Don't you just love when things turn out nicely when you least expect it?
I certainly do :)

  1. This reminds me of a time I went to the library with my sister in law, my niece, and another kid, but I can't remember if it was another niece or a nephew. My niece walked through the library crying at the top of her lungs. She was 5 at the time. My sister in law just had hold of her hand and was walking through to the exit just acting like my niece wasn't making a peep. I, on the other hand, noticed all of the glares and stares. This story reminds me of that experience :-)
