Oscar’s Library Card

During our planned visit to our local library today, Oscar made the impromptu decision to sign up for his very own library card. 

When the librarian handed him a “Sharpie” marker to sign his name, he declared with the utmost consternation, “I’m not supposed to use those kinds of markers.”

After reassuring him that it was okay–just this once–to use a permanent marker, Oscar signed his name on the back of the card to make it official!

Though we had already checked out twelve books with my card, Oscar needed to “break in” his by checking out three of his own.  He beamed with pride as he told Don and our good friend “Cap’n Mike” about it tonight. 

Prospero said in The Tempest, “My library was dukedom large enough.”   Today Oscar’s access to his library was secured.  Another milestone, another sigh . . .
