Wife Swap Out. Foster Kids in.

What a difference a day makes, eh?

Yesterday, I was purusing the application for Wife Swap. Today I am purusing what I have to do to get Emergency Family certification. My messed up brother (he is fine now, but took him years) who raised a really messed up daughter (funny how that happens) who kept having babies, got her babies taken away today. My mom called me and next thing I knew, I was on the phone for hours with CSD. I haven't had much to do with these people for years because, well, just because. Ahem.

So, because we are bloody, freaking squeaky clean and the salt of the earth kind of people, we will no doubt be adding to our family for a while. Remember I have teens. Love my teens. If I ever said I hated teens, I didn't mean it. They are gods and goddesses.

Here are the ages of the tiny waifs. Six, two and a half, and ten months. Boy, girl, girl respectively.

Oh. My. Gawd.

So I have to come up with crib, toddler bed, high chair, carseats, booster seat, clothes, stoller and diaper bag. What exactly do you put in a diaper bag? Gawd, I blanked it all out!

Okay. Going to make a list.

Yowzers! You are a saint! How the heck do you do it all?

Rachel Vincent said...

Wait, you're going to be taking your niece's three small children for an unknown period of time?

Wow. You're a saint. And very patient.

Doesn't their mother have these things to send with them?

Teri, you are my hero. :)

Wow, Teri. taking on someone else's kids - and three young ones no less - is beyond anyone's call to duty. I'm in awe.

Mine are 7, 4 and 17 mo. and I'm run ragged every day. And I don't have teens on top of that! You and those kids will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Omg Teri.

You are so earning heaven points for this. Big time heaven points.
