What once was lost is now found...

Okay, I have decided giving a six year old a library card isn't the brightest idea I've had. But... I did it. I even allowed Brennen to talk me into letting Kjersten check out a book for him. It's not a book I like. I wouldn't normally allow it, but it was a little harmless drivel and I was IN line at the check-out.

Go figure... That's the book we lose! Argh!! For 50 some odd days, we've been looking for this inane book. Daily reminders from libraryelf.com taunt me... Reminding me that I will be buying this stupid little book...

Yesterday, whilst at the library (co-op tour for my middle-grammar kiddos), I talk to the librarian. She explains that I already owe $3.30 on her card, will owe $8.50 for the book should I not produce it by the 29th. (She did renew it so it gives me some leeway to find it.)

Well, a second attempt at a bribe (this time $1.00) for the finder of said book worked! Book is now being closely watched, lest it wander off again. In the book drop it goes- tomorrow.

The winner is...

My 3yo decided to take a library DVD out of the "To Be Returned" pile and put it in with our personal DVDs. So when I checked my account online it showed up as due. And I knew we had watched it (and supposedly returned it) 2 weeks previously. Thankfully I found it when I was packing our DVDs.

I am with you on B bears....some are "ok", some I out and out won't read - the ones where Papa is a bumbling fool who must constantly be set straight and taught my Mama and kids. Huh?
