storyhour fail

in our defence, the librarian is terrible. she is never on time, doesn't engage the kids AT ALL, and insists on passive agressively chastising me for dressing the girls alike & then commenting on how people can't tell even fraternal twins apart - with multiple examples. Like we have patience for that. Then she insists on starting story hour by having the kids get out of their seats to feed a fish to the pelican puppet. 'Cause we're all going to sit nicely after WE ALL GET UP AND JUMP AROUND A PUPPET! WHO THEN SITS AT HER FEET TO "LISTEN" TO THE STORY!" Sorry, but am I the only one who sees where this is going to end?

Perhaps she enjoys re-shelving the entire children's section.

That sounds poorly planned. Also, how you dress your kids is your own business. Just so you know, if you dressed them differently, you'd be criticized for that too, at least daily. I would know.

I have decided not to go back. It's so absurd that people think they can comment on how your children want to dress. would it be acceptable if they weren't twins? I doubt it. people would think it was 'too cute' if they were close in age sibs who wanted to wear the same things. grrrr
