Or – Dinner: The Hawthorne effect
Or- I can think of a better way to spend my Friday night
Or- The child’s been here a month and we’re just getting around to this now because…????
I’ve been contacted by one of children’s services contracted organizations. They want to come and observe Pink so that she can be evaluated for services she may need. This wouldn’t really be a big deal except the observation can only happen after 5pm or on the weekends. And the initial email I received said it may take 3-4 hours. THREE to FOUR HOURS????!!!! For a four year old??? Whaaa???
Anyway, so apparently the worker’s already compiled some information, so it should only take about two hours now.
Oh. Well. In that case….
So, sometime after 5pm tomorrow, we’ll be trying to make, serve and eat dinner, spend some family time together and put kids to bed while Pink is being observed.
I. Don’t. Even. Know.
Just when I think I’ve seen it all, just when I think I have a handle on this fostering thing they throw something new out there.
I think I’m just gonna laugh and use lots of passive aggressive saracasm and make really awkward jokes and snort laugh at them… because if I don’t laugh, well, you know…
