Ellie asked for a library card for her birthday. Seriously. Her sisters have one, Mom has one, Dad even has one, so apparently it's something to be had. So we stopped by today and picked one up for her. I think she grew six inches as soon as the lady, who was near hysterics from the cuteness of it all, handed it to her.
As we were walking out the door she looked up at me with big eyes and said, "I love my card. I feel so impressed right now."
Me, too. Another reader is born.
