Time Flies

I have not updated my blog since August! I realized that I have not written anything, but honestly since so much has happened I just didn’t feel like writing. LOL! Things have been going well over here. My littlest bee left my care and returned to her mother in the middle of September. Even though I was sad to see her go, I was kind of relieved (I know that sounds bad). Two children under 2 is HARD and being single with 2 under 2 is even harder (for me at least). I still get to see little bee and I speak to her mom a few times a month. That is really nice and I am happy that we can remain connected.

My busy bee is growing leaps and bounds. She is such a comedian and she is starting to talk A LOT more. She forms mini sentences now. Her first sentence was “Thank you Mama.” BIG TEARS! For the most part I hear, “dkjs jsoif jsoiud ljdour phone!” and “nosh kendo msojf ljdioflj milk!” LOL! I’m sure she knows every word she is saying… however I do NOT :-). She has started to use the potty and as expanded her appetite. Her favorite right now is ketchup and it must be included in every meal!

We have been visiting with her dad each week and busy bee is starting to get to know him a little bit. It’s funny because she calls everyone “dada” and I’m not sure if she gets the concept that he is HER dad… but she can remember each item that he has personally brought to her. I am happy she has this connection. We spent part of the thanksgiving holiday with her dad and I was glad that he was able to connect with her outside of the DSS building.

I have never been big on decorating and celebrating the holiday season, but boy is it different having a little one in the house. I’ve purchased decorations for my lawn and decorated a Christmas stocking :-). We even went to see Santa and decorated some Christmas cookies. The cookies were a hit!! Santa… not so much, but Santa assured me that it will get better with time.

This is just a small update… I haven’t forgotten about writing the blog. It’s just that sometimes all of the emotions, mental energy, trainings, and busyness take a toll on me and I just don’t feel like rehashing it (if that makes sense). I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!

Can you find her cookie :-)?

Hi! My name is Clarise. I'm currently going through the process of becoming a foster parent. I started this blog to share my journey with readers. I am not a writer, an expert on parenting, or even a parent... but so many folks have asked questions, I thought I would share. I am also an avid runner, nutrition coach and devoted Sunday school teacher (which is where I learn most of my patience with preschooler's :-)). I also work for a small agency called the VA. I hope you enjoy!
