Kenley’s Interest

Yesterday, for the first time I took Kenley to our local Public library. We are lucky to have a branch near our home.

As a full time working mom, 5 years ago, this was an activity I was always wishing I could do.

“If only I didn’t work, I would get to take Britton to story time”.

Kenley comes along, I am NOT working, however she was born ill so we were always home.

Then better, then preschool, then a job, and now she’s 2 1/2.

So I closed the screen of my laptop at 10:15 yesterday, because by golly I was taking her to the library!

We got there at 10:30 for story time, and I had forgotten how nice it was to get to spend one on one time with the Kens. I’ve had both girls at home full time since May, and Kenley hasn’t had much alone time with Mommy.

Okay, back to my story.

So the kids are quietly listening to the story teller read a book about little bears, when suddenly Kenley looks up at me, holding a tampon that she has retreived from my purse.

She inquisitively, and quite loudly I might add, yells ‘Dis go in you ah tee tee ma mee?”

Me- Kenley, shhhh- yes. No put that away!”

Kenley- “Dis go in you ah tee tee ma mee!”

Oh, the joys of motherhood.

My friend Alison sitting next to me asked- how does she even know that?

Kenley is my little shadow. She follows me everywhere.
