Hilarious. Humbling.

Posted on

So when I walk into the kitchen to find my preschooler eating a stale donut he dug out of the trash…

Or I find that the water bottle cap is baby esophagus sized only seconds before I have to remember the baby Heimlich…

Or when I call a fruit snack a fruit with their lunch…

Or when I knock one over (because they’re always under foot)…

Or when I give a toddler a straw to play with because I’m tired of her screaming in the car…

Really, any time our parenting is less than exceptional (which suprisingly often), we joke that we’re shoe ins for foster parents of the year.

Well I’ll be darned if we were not recognized as our county’s foster parents of the year. Crazy. Hilarious. Humbling.
