Baby Fun

It's been a while again. Time seems to be getting away from me a lot lately.

I've been watching the cutest little 9 month old little girl for the last few days. She belongs to a foster family from our church. They have one other foster child who had to see a medical specialist in Seattle so I was the lucky gal who got to babysit the sweet girl for 3 days. They get back from Seattle tonight, so other than nap times, I'm sucking up as much baby fun as I can.

It's funny, we've been thinking for a while now about becoming a foster family. When I told our friend she asked if we'd like to have a test run. haha I'm so glad I did it!!

The only thing I really need to work on is keeping up with the messes I'VE created while she's been here. There mostly cleaned up now but let me just say.... YIKES! Instead of traveling with one set, I've had toys, blankets, binkies, and burp-up-rags scattered between 3 rooms since Monday.

I've always said being a mom is universal. That is so cool Kiana!

I know for a fact that you would make a great foster mom!! If I've learned anything in the short time I've been doing it, its this: Don't jump in and take LOTS of kids right away!! I have 7 now instead of 8, trying to downsize just a bit!

How fun!! You will love it...we did it before we had our own children and it is so very rewarding. Ya'll would be so very good at it and the kids would love ya'll, too!!

I bet your having a ball...as for those messes...with a baby...you wont see clean for months...maybe years...if you like to play with the child...there is little time left to clean...but...the dust will wait...the burp rags will eventually smell bad and you will grab them in route from one room to another...and life will go on...I thought of being a foster parent...but now...well you want to try teen-agers too?
