Today Clara and I took her very first trip to the library. It's a place I'll be dragging her a lot over the next few years so she better get used to it! I needed a few books for my class this afternoon and my classroom is still mostly in boxes. I couldn't put my hands on my copy of Joyful Noise (and you can't teach children's poetry without it!) so off to the library we went. I picked up a few new board books for her, too, then promptly wiped down every single page with a Clorox wipe.

I also got a copy of CS Lewis' A Grief Observed for me to reread as I continue to struggle with the why behind every other CDH baby who loses this fight. I'm sure I won't ever understand it, but maybe rereading this will help me grieve alongside these other mothers just a little better.

I loved being among the aisles of books today. I truly hope Clara will grow up learning to love literacy!
Here's my little bookworm!
