Biology.

I just spent the last hour on the phone with Lizzy's mom. That will teach me to answer the phone...

In that hour she...

...slurred her words constantly...


...read me almost all the paper work from the last hearing (which I have already read)- all the while spelling words out for me that she couldn't sound out and then wanted me to interpret the whole paper to her...


...told me how she adds cream cheese to mashed potatoes because she watches the cooking channel all the time...


...made up stories about all these things Lizzy says while she is with her not realizing I know that Lizzy can't say long sentences...


...told me all about how they owe the power company $800, but they are on a payment plan...


...and explained to me how if her dog gets cancer she isn't going to get rid of her, she is going to let her die at home and then she will bury her in the back yard.



Yes, it was a "interesting" phone conversation. She had to get off the phone finally because her meds were kicking in and she was about to fall asleep.

I am betting that tomorrow she will show up for her visit in pajama pants. Just an educated guess.

If this wasn't so sad, I would laugh. But to be honest, I did kind of chuckle. Who needs Jerry Springer when you are dealing with foster care? lol :P

Wow. Sad for everyone there...Way back when I was a newbie at teaching I mistakenly gave out my phone number. Yeah, I had a parent call me at 2:00 for a ride home from the club. Never again...
