This was my fav:

I guess this is what I see librarians as being for. To me, a librarian should say...
I'd stop in and chat again. My 7-year-old dd reads well above grade level and needed me to talk to the librarian about letting her choose from the intermediate books and letting her take more than two at a time (she finishes books like Nancy Drew in under 2 hours...)
I needed to talk to the librarian a second time about providing *guidance* though. DD came home with two Gossip Girls books - ack!!
What a beautiful offer. I don't know a lot about legally adopting adults - but I've known teens to be adopted, there was no requirement of a name change. What it does is formalizes your relationship as adults - because guardianship ends when you become an adult. It sounds like it makes so much sense in your situation and will offer both emotional and legal benefits.
I'm so glad to find other people who are excited about the chickens. I'm stupidly excited
Between this and the new community garden at City Hall - I feel so proud

Ksenia, I was crossposting with you! I thought I was the only night owl around here! Great to hear how you've all been weathering life.
