I'm sorry to hear you're going through such a rough patch right now. I'd imagine it's especially hard when you're in pain and don't have the emotional support you need. Sending hugs!

Fostering update

I had my first hosting this past week with a very sweet and funny 2-year-old. She adjusted remarkably well and attached to me pretty quickly (and I to her ;)). It went well and we had a great time...

Unless it's some sort of extreme crazy error (which it wasn't) he should be allowed to keep the money. It was their error, not his.

Daycare problem/question

The child I am fostering goes to daycare. This daycare was very easy to work with and willing to take a child with little notice. They are dcfs-approved. The director has been very nice.

I have tried them over the past year or so. I'm not too impressed. My main issue is they do nothing for static. I don't find them noisy, I just don't find that they do much.
