Non-mofo award

I've been meaning to mention this one for a while, but...

To the two-year-old twin girls who come in with their mom, so well-behaved, and clean up the children's area when they're finished playing, and always push in the chairs, and wait until we're done with the patron on the computer before showing us that wonderful book they found this time, that they're so excited about getting to read... Thank you. May you grow up just as wonderful as you are when you visit us...and just as generous.

We actually have a whole bunch of awesome little kids at work, but these two really take the cake. They came toddling in one day with their mom, nearly bouncing, and came up to return their books, and handed us a bag. Inside was the majority of their joint sticker collection. One of the things we've had to cut back on is fun kid-stuff, like coloring/activity pages, and the stickers the kids get at the end of their visit, at checkout. These two little girls visit with their mom regularly, and always ask for a sticker, like the other little ones...so they donated their sticker collection from birthdays and other presents so that everyone could still get one, when they come to the library.

Wow. Would you believe that brought tears to my eyes? We hear so much bad stuff about kids, of all ages, that we forget there are parents out there who are bringing up their children with grace and wisdom.

Compare this to the bedbug mofo - you now have me thinking the next generation might be able to save civilization! ;)

Two-year-olds do this? Two-year-olds?

I, for one, would like to welcome our future twin overlords (overladies?).

Kids you just want to hug. I don't say that too often.
