5 year olds definitely don’t say poop– 5 year old
C after taking a bite of pizza. “This is so good i’m gonna smack its face off!”
So I pick the 5 year old up after school at 4:30 (she had yoga after school) she is mopey, but still energetic (if that makes sense) she almost falls asleep on the 5 minute ride home and then refuses supper saying she’s too tired. She ends up falling asleep on the floor at 5:30. I try to rouse her because i know there will be hell to pay if she falls asleep. She ends up falling asleep...
Today at the playground there was an asian mom and her kids and their dad. C while swinging says to me “wow angie i didn’t know she could speak english!” All i can think is that she has only ever heard an asian person speak their native language. I didn’t even know how to respond.
This post is to Thank the staff at Topsham Public Library for their welcoming arms and willingness to allow me to interview and take a look around. Thank you to Susan Preece, Director for taking the time to formally sit down with me and answer all my questions, not too many people/places will do that nowadays. and a big thank you to Emma Gibbon who got me in touch with Susan for this interview. ...
I really do love my local library, although I never had taken a deep look into it. this visit and interview with the director was really insightful. When I look at the budget for the 2011 fiscal year, to me $364,000 seems like a lot of money, but looking at the break down of where it all goes helps me to understand. $14,000 of that total alone goes to books,(not including audio,dvd,cds or...

Who was I talking to?
To be honest when I contacted the library I included my questions. I was hoping that they would just answer them and email them back. (which I know defeats the pusrpose of having this whole assignment, but i’m busy!) I emailed back and forth With Emma Gibbon who set me up a time to come in and sit down with someone. My email was simply stated that I was a student in the UMA ILS program and...

Don’t pat me, i’m not a dog. - c after i patted her on the back.– 3 y/o
So the 4 year old I take care of is in th “poop” stage. Everything is poop, if you have kids, or even know kids you know this stage is a tricky one to discipline. There is a rule that you can say poop and talk about it if you are in the bathroom. Because it is bathroom talk. (parents rule not mine) last night the girls were taking a bath. 4 year old starts poop talking. Poop this and...

The city water district just came knocking on the door here to shut off their water. They are 211$ or so behind. I had to call my boss at work and have her talk to the water guy and explain to him that there are two tenants therefore two separate...
