Today was their first trip to the babysitter's house (hi babysitter if you are reading this!) and that was SOOOO nice. A day with just me and the baby...it was wonderful.
I have always been a huge advocate for being a stay at home mom if possible, but this situation has made me realize that sometimes you have to do what is best for everyone and that isn't always everyone being together all the time. That is where I am with my two crazy girls. I love them, but I can't be around them every second of everyday. I just can't.
I actually think that this is a realist solution to foster parents in this situation. My girls seemed to have a great time at the babysitter's and was happy to see me when I came to pick them up. Win win.
I have enjoyed do pre-school with them too. We go over the letters, numbers, colors, and animals. We color and do craft and play games, I think that these girls need LOTS of structure so I am being forced in to this Tina & Lizzy shaped structure, but it is working so I am just going to go with it.
