Remember how we started the week by getting kicked out of the foster care Christmas party?
Yeah, well, the week has been that good, pretty much.
Besides a new child vomiting each day, the washing of sheets and spraying of Lysol, we have also had to say no to more foster kids being picked up as the holidays kick up the dust for those making poor choices or not functioning well.
Oh, and me.
The Baby, who is quickly becoming a toddler, was supposed to start twice a week visits and then overnights and then go home, and now all visits have stopped because mom has relapsed and lost her job.
Three and Sister will be leaving soon, right around Christmas, we just got that confirmed.
In the meantime, I locked all the sixes in the car with the keys. It was a mess! My phone was already in the car, so I couldn’t call for help. I was trying to get Five to push the unlock button that was right by the hazard lights, so was telling him to find the red triangle. He found every triangle in the car but that one! It was hilarious!
Then the Toddler locked herself in the bathroom, with a lock we didn’t know it had, and so I had to keep singing and chatting with her (so she wouldn’t be scared) while I took the doorknob off!
But everything is fine because the worker, who wanted to apologize for the Christmas party, gave us an entire crate of peppers.
So this is Nathan, cutting up peppers do we can prep them for freezing.
The best thing, though?
Nathan’s mom gave me this book, and his dad gave me these screwdrivers.
You know, so I can unlock the babies.
It had been an excellent week of parenting, let me assure you.
