And I’m the mother of two foster children. If you are new to this blog – or haven’t gotten sick of hearing me whine about the mess – I had a very public blog with my fingerprints all over it. I was told I couldn’t continue my blog and talk about foster parenting unless I say things like: *grin, cue music* We have a new placement *sigh, swoon* Sometimes foster parenting is difficult *chuckle*, but we are optomistic that reunification will be successful *grin, bat eyelashes* – umm, no.
Because that is about as cheesy and fake as my profile picture! If I’m publishing my life, it’s going to be in all it’s gritty messy glory (OK, not ALL it’s messy glory, but a good portion of it).
I obyed, sort of. Now I have this blog. My nom de plume (oh, I like it! I’ve always wanted to say “my nom de plume”) is Monica, my husband is Leoni, and the children all get crazy names I gather from Scripture and Shakespear (two of my favorite things). If that isn’t clear as mud, you are welcome to browse through the pages on the right side of the blog. I’ll be wasting hours and hours working on this (laundry be darned!, but not my socks… sorry, it couldn’t be helped), so check back soon to see what we’ve been up to.
