At the beginning of this week we recieved a new placement, I’m going to call her Pretty. She is gorgeous and sweet, she is 17, and she will age out of foster care with us. A new adventure! A new road in foster care; we’ve never had a child age out in our home. In fact, Pretty is the oldest child we’ve had placed in our home.
Pretty is into all girly things and can contour a face with precision. It’s really impressive, I could never do those things. Pretty was dealt a crappy hand if cards in life; she’s a great kid despite all of the obstacles she’s faced. Pretty is getting along well with the older girls in our home and the rest of the family. She seems to be good fit, a special shout out to my homie J.S. at the Bullhead City DES for always calling me with potential kids for our home that will work within our family dynamic.
Lemon’s 4th birthday came and went last month, now I’ve got Boychild, Biscuit, and husbands birthdays this month. Boychild was disappointed that he couldn’t go to Glamis a couple of weeks ago and was at a cheer competition in Phoenix instead. Husband is a rockstar dad that he is will be taking Boychild to Glamis in 2 weeks to celebrate his birthday; Boychild is very excited! This weekend we are headed to Palm Springs for a cheer competition, Trenton he will be hanging out with our dog and his best friend this weekend because he is not enthusiastic about the competitions at all. Give him a few years and he will be begging to tag along.
Biscuit has had a serious attitude problem during the last 2 weeks. I don’t like it. Shes currently grounded for 2 weeks, she shows little remorse.
Bunny is Bunny. She’s an overachiever and cries a lot, boy this kid is stubborn.
Blue, shes still a little withdrawn. She’s funny, she cracks jokes and wrestles with Biscuit regularly. She’s a good girl and I love having here here, we’re still unsure where her case of going but shes just fine with us for now.
Husband has been working a lot and I appreciate him more than he could imagine. In short; things are amazing and we are all happy and healthy.
