This month's Sanity Saver is my local library.
As soon as we moved to our current area (at a mere four months pregnant) my husband eagerly led me to our local library to "check it out". This did not seem like a fun weekend activity to me but his enthusiasm was endearing.
He quickly struck up conversations with the very helpful librarians, asking them this and that. They showed us around their a large children's area and informed us of the year-round children's activities they provided for various ages. After about twenty minutes they asked my husband and I how old our children are. Bless him, and yet I am glad he took me there.
I never would have even considered a local library as an option for new mothers. But it gave me a reason to get out of the house and to interact with other parents during the first months of Peaches' life. And it was all FREE!
Free activities for kids, free conversation for the deprived and free interaction with other parents!
But this Sanity Saver is under threat. Please, check out your local library, use it, protect it and take care of it.
Not an instructional blog but the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth - so help me Mom.
