Hot weather and end of foster placement

July 17, 2012

The last few days in southern Ontario have been hotter than stupid.

I have heard that there are some places, like Arizona and Texas, where it gets above 100 degrees for days, or weeks.

Two weeks into second placement

July 2, 2012

It’s been a busy week.

The best of times and the worst of times, to rip off classic literature.  Many times, the best and worst are separated by minutes.

A week into placement #2

June 27, 2012

Well, the honeymoon is definitely over.  In fact, after a couple of days.

Tate and S got along really well for a couple of days, then more friction.

Another fabulous day … finished

December 5, 2011

The day ended about as well as it began.

After supper, Sandra thought it would a good idea to go to the local McDonald’s play place. I was somewhat hesitant, but thought it may wear everyone out.

Everything went pretty well.  Lots of fun.  Everyone played well until it was time to go.  I gave P a five minute warning, and went to collect Tate and Reid.  They came fine.

Sandra told P it was time to go.  Rather than put on his boots, he decided to run back to the play equipment.  This led to a massive meltdown, quite similar to Chernobyl.  Lots of screaming and hollering and wailing.  Led to a treat for us.  Everyone else enjoyed their treat.

I enjoyed a cup of anniversary blend from Starbucks, with a shot of Caramel Brule.  Mmmmmm, good.

When it came time to go to bed, P went first.  About twenty minutes later, I went up to check on him.  He was still awake.  A few minutes later, I went back and he was still awake.  I got him up and took Tate up to bed.  About five minutes later, I went up, and Tate was out.  P went to bed, and hopefully asleep quickly.
