We met up with our PEPS peeps for our monthly gathering at the Central library in downtown Seattle for the very cool story time with a children's librarian. Apparently it's new and put in place for parents who work during the week and can't make the regular reading times.
Afterwards, we made our way over to the desk to get Ava her very own library card, followed by my lengthy instructions on caring for it and any books associated with it: no chewing, juice splashes, accidentally tearing, throwing, or otherwise treating these like books you own. Because hell hath no fury like a book-lover aggrieved. Said book-lover being me.
Ava nodded somberly and carefully tucked the card into her hot pink, sparkly purse, with all the other important things: sparkly sanitizer, sugar free gum, tiny pony figurine, bracelets, tiny toy parts, etc.
