Anyone want a 2 year old?

So, I made the mistake of taking Logan to the library again.  I took him with me last weekend and ended up carrying him into the library screaming and carrying him out of the library screaming.  Thankfully, there wasn't much screaming while we were in the library.

But today Logan got me kicked out of the library!  Seriously!  He wanted to put books in the book drop...which is fine except for the fact that he didn't want anyone to help him...he was going very slow...and he needed help to get the books lined up in the book drop.  So, I tried to help him...he started screaming!  He laid down on top of the bag of books that we were returning.  I tried to be patient and wait for him to get up and continue putting the books away...but he was too worried about me trying to take the books out of the bag.  So...finally I had no choice!  I picked him up and put the books in the book drop myself...which caused more screaming!  Then we went over to the shelves to get our books that were on hold.  Some lady who works at the library came over and told me (quite rudely!) that my child was being too noisy and I had to leave the library because there were people trying to study.  I hate it when people look at me like I'm crazy to be out in public with my 5 annoying.  My response was a nice..."I'm doing the best I can."  was all that I said.  Now, really...I knew my child was causing a commotion and I was trying to hurry...I didn't like the situation either.  So, I gave Kessiah and Jenessa the library cards and told them to get the books checked out while I took Sienna, Logan (still screaming), and Mason outside.

So, what am I supposed to do?  Never leave the house with all of my children again...that's not a possibility!  I know that I will save any future library trips for awhile to Fridays or Saturdays when Ryan is home because no way am I taking Logan in there anytime soon!

So, after shedding a few tears I do remember that I love being a Mom...but sometimes it is the hardest job in the world!

So sorry to hear about the rude lady. Some people just don't remember what it is like to have children. (or have never had any). You are awesome!

Maybe someday, years from now, you'll look back on this and laugh, but until then, know that I think you're a great mom and if I could relieve you of your two year old for a while I would.
