  1. Ok, I know I am derailing a bit here but I love this idea and think it will work very well for us! Thanks!
  2. I am in the same situation as DawnM and EasyPeasy (except even older!). Unexpectedly became a foster parent and it looks like adoption will happen this summer. I have considered the experiences that she may not have (I gave up on birthday parties a loooong time ago!) and today she was very excited to hang Christmas stockings but it had to be put off due to my son's work schedule - and admittedly my teens are not nearly as excited as she is to hang the stockings! So it is definitely different- This sums it up I guess- life can take us to all kinds of unexp
  3. So sorry for your loss . So much for you, your stepfather and the rest of your family to contend with at this already difficult time. My thoughts are with you.
  4. Thanks for updating! I have been thinking of you guys. Hope your daughter and son in law are doing good as well! The twins are adorable (but I think you knew that already!)!
  5. Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery for you and your family. And thank you for sharing!
  6. I could have written this word for word regarding our case.
  7. I actually love Ishtar! My brother and I quote it to each other all the time! We may be in the minority in our opinions.....
  8. I was a homeschool parent ( just graduated last kiddo) who became a public school teacher. I think my homeschool experience benefits my classroom much more than my classroom experience would have benefited me when I was homeschooling. Also, like happysmileylady, I did family child care for many years, which also greatly informed my classroom teaching!

  11. Wow on ticking all the Daily Dozen food boxes! I have been veg for 30 something years, but with a significant junk food habit. I have just started tracking the Daily Dozen - I am not ticking all the boxes for sure, but even so I am definitely less hungry! Still having my daily candy bar and coke ( and ok, my donut too) but way less fast food and junk throughout the day. It is really fun to figure out how to maximize good food in every meal, it seems like a lot of the not so good stuff is falling by the wayside.
  12. It is strangely comforting to know I am not the only one!
  13. I just requested to join the group. I am not a very active poster ( and had to re register with a new user name) but am a long time reader of the boards and am in the process of adopting a two year old. My next youngest child is 18. So it is ....interesting and I would love a place to discuss with people who hopefully understand how we got to this place.
