I am going to physicall drop off my foster packet/application today!
I was going to send it through the mail, but after speaking with my soon to be licensor, I’m not. I just have that odd feeling it would be more easily misplaced. And everything about me is in that folder…scary to think where it could possibly end up!
I found the cutest toddler bed on Craigslist last night! I picked it up after work and I just adore it! I have never really seen one before – I love how cute it is! She gave me some fitted sheets as well.
I also found an adorable girls crib blanket and dust ruffle! It’s VERY shabby chic and I want it in my bed size too! I still haven’t found boy stuff yet – although my goal is to have it be VERY girl for a little girl (duh) or VERY boy for a little he-man. So all frilly and pink and soft, or all sports or whatever for a boy. Yes, I am playing into gender stereotypical roles. I don’t care! It’s SO cute!
A friend of mine talked me into signing up on a dating website again…I had gone on a couple of dates with one guy, but let’s just say it didn’t pan out. I am trying very hard to move WAY past my ex…and my friends want to help that along I guess. But I an not really interested (or maybe I am?) in starting a new relationship and trying to explain that they will be second to me caring for other people’s children, DSHS, social workers, appointments, therapy, etc. I mean, when do I introduce THAT to someone? Hi my name is Jae (but my real name, obviously) and I don’t have bio kids but I have lots of other kids. I don’t know…
Being a foster mommy is more important to me than a relationship, but I do wonder how it will work out. I guess we shall see.
I can’t wait to get this process moving forward!! There is some little kid out there that is going to need me as much as I need them…I hope there are things that we will teach each other.
