In the car on the way to the library
Me: Connor, when we get inside we have to be quiet. We have to be quiet in the library.
Connor (whispering): Ok.
He whispered alllll the way there. As soon as we got into the library. Lots of loud talking and noise came spewing out of his mouth while we took care of paper work for his card. He also had lots of fun swinging the ropes that help define the lines back and forth and back and forth. Sigh.....
So we get the card, the Librarian hands Connor a sticker and we head over to the children's section.
Me: Connor why don't you pick out a book?
Connor: Um, no thanks.
Me: You don't want to read a book?
Me: Then pick one out.
Connor: No you do it.
Sigh.... eventually he picked out a book and we read it before he got distracted by the table with the bendy wire that you can push beads around on it.
While he played I walked around and picked out two books to go home with us.
Me: Connor do you want to read another book?
Me: Pick one out.
Connor: Um, no thanks. You do it.
Me: No. If you want a book you pick it out.
He picked out another one. We read it and added it to the take home pile. He proudly carried his books up to the front desk while yelling, "Hey lady! Scan my books and card." Sigh....
He sure is proud of that library card though!
