Our Bad Impression~

If you have ever seen the film "Cheaper by the Dozen" the one with Clifford Webb you might remember the line that Mr. Gilbreth told his daughters when they were embarrassed about going into the new school with all their little siblings, "A Person with inner dignity is never embarrassed!". I have a hard time remembering that some times. :)

Today we visited our new library and what I had been very afraid of happened. TyTy and Levi I'm afraid left a bad impression! They ran through the library trying to get away from me. Every time you try to catch up to a little one they just run all the more. :) As I was trying to catch them a sweet librarian stopped and smiled at me. I felt so bad about them being disrupted. I just smiled and told her I was sorry. Oh I dearly love my little brothers but there boys. And where there's boys there will be lots of noise and energy.

I feel I left a bad impression on our new library. A young mom with one QUIET little baby girl looked at us as we walked in with some amazement.

Raise your head high and remember that a person with inner dignity is never embarrassed. A new thought of mine.

I think dignity means your self respect. I'll try to post some soon. I want to finish decorating first.

That was very funny Abigail! It is just preparing you for motherhood because you will have LOTS of humbling moments then! :>)

Your Mom said you might get to go to the library with just her. I know you would like that. Boys will be boys. You wouldn't want them to be wimps but I can see how you would wish they were a little quieter in the library. They will learn. Love - Gran
