|two tired kiddos in Brazil|
So finally last week I went to just return everything and take care of my fines, so I wouldn't feel so stressed about it anymore and we could get back to our regular library routines.
And, hooray! My fines were only $3.40. I think a sweet librarian had pity on me and didn't charge me for our late, late movie. And I was so grateful for the happy surprise and just to have it all taken care of.
Even better though, when we pulled up in front of the library, there was a Maclaren stroller out front, just like ours. And as I got out and looked closer I realized it looked just like ours. And then I started to just vaguely remember bringing Porter in to an activity the month before in the stroller. I asked the librarian after I paid my fines, "There's a stroller out front, and I think it might be mine..." and she answered with "Oh! We wondered if anyone was ever going to come back for that!"
So hooray for patient librarians and a safe little town where our stroller could sit out for a month and still be waiting for us!
