As you might have guessed we received a foster care placement. I would love to share all the details of these little people, but due to confidentiality reasons I am quite limited in what I can say. I can tell you it has been CRAZY! My husband have gone from never being parents to having two children in our home 24/7. The girl (who I will call Minnie) is 3.5 years old and the boy (who I will call Mickey) is 11 months old. We have our hands full! There are really sweet children and seem to be adapting well. The baby is finally sleeping mostly through the night, which helps me think I can pick up a little blogging again.
The little ones have been with us for about three weeks and this week I think we are starting to find our new normal. I have actually cooked some meals and not gone to bed in a complete exhausted stupor.
Tonight I was even able to go out and water my garden. I had started planting before the little ones arrived, but since then the garden has been sorely neglected for the most part. My mom came over one day and we just threw the plants in holes and hoped for the best. Minnie actually helped us - Mickey was napping (I love napping babies!) Minnie has also enjoyed picking lettuce and spinach. I can't wait for her to see the other goodies that will come from the garden. I took a few pictures while I was watering. Things are a little behind and there is a weed problem, but it isn't as bad as I feared out there.
Got a little carried away with the eggplants - three different varieties.
Minnie didn't love the veggie/egg muffins the first time, but I will try again. She did like the blueberry/banana smoothie (sshhh...don't tell her about the spinach I hid in there.)
