Unfortunate Turn of Events

Today I was told by protective services that I was to return Baby S to her parents. They then told me that the safety plan was revoked and no follow up was recommended. My heart dropped and I felt absolutely sick to my stomach. What do you mean not needed? Are you out of your... Continue Reading →

Dealing with M1 Frustrations

One of the harder things I struggle with when it comes to M1 is the fact she only contacts me when she needs something. I can text her ask how things are going and while she does answer, she makes no attempt to talk to me unless there is a need. Yesterday was pretty typical... Continue Reading →

Another Year

Soo I rang in the new year trying to convince Baby S she needed to get to sleep. She was not really on board with the idea and it was past 12:30 when she finally decided to sleep. Oh well it is what it is and she did sleep until 5am so that was pretty... Continue Reading →

Christmas Day itself

I will start with a funny story, though it is only funny because it was not serious. I have been cooking since I was 10 years old. I have worked in many kitchens and can cook just about anything, as long as it is not ornate or super decorative as I am not really good... Continue Reading →

Another Week Down

I was always told don't wish your life away wanting it to be the next day or next week. Well I did not follow this advise this week and waited and waited for the week to be over. Now don't get me wrong the baby's birthday was wonderful but then the rest of the week... Continue Reading →

Uphill Climbs

I am just venting here and know that really nothing can be said to change much that is going on but maybe if I just say it I can get some peace so I can refocus and move on. Last week M2 was suspended from school for crazy unsafe behavior. She earned it, she deserved... Continue Reading →

The Unraveling

M1 applied for a job at a local day care facility. She was convinced they would hire her just a matter of getting back the paperwork from the Office of Children and Family Services. On Tuesday it dawned on me that if the paperwork submitted had been handed in on Thursday it would be back... Continue Reading →
