A Good Problem

by Stacey

I go to our local library nearly everyday. I browse the shelves or pick up books I reserve through our inter-library loan system. Sometimes I become self-conscious and worry that the librarians think I have too much free time on my hands. I will tell them how much Caroline is reading right now. How I am constantly reading blogs and reviews looking for new books that she’ll love. How I can hardly keep up with her appetite for books. Most of these conversations end with a giggle and a comment from me or the librarian that is some variation on “It’s a good problem to have.”

I’m pretty sure the picture above illustrates my next good problem. Reading at the dinner table.

Looks like reading will supplement good family conversation for a little while at least…


  1. cute! my older daughter loved books from birth til about a few months ago, she is 5 1/2.. now she refuses to check books out from the library, doesn’t want me to read before bedtime, and has no interest in reading to me. the ironic thing is that she is actually quite good at reading. is this just a phase?

    We have this “problem” too, especially in the morning when trying to get ready for school. Getting a school uniform on whilst holding a book in one hand isn’t straight forward!
