Prayer.

A foster mother's prayer:


Dear God,

Please help me to mentally outwit these children today. Please help me to remember that they cannot help the crazy behavior they have relied on for so long that they are now trying out on me.

Oh, and please help me to always remember that I AM NOT ALLOWED TO SPANK THESE CHILDREN, because I want to.

Amen.


(I feel like I need a disclaimer: This is a joke and only a joke. At least that is what I am calling it. :) )

And whatever happens God...please don't put me in a place where I spank my bio kid just cause I can.

That would be wrong God. I know.

Had one of those days myself...and I can spank mine now. The glory of it fades...still doesn't help most days!

Some days I dream of duct tape and it's many uses. This will too pass. We are battling the quiet house, it is strange.

Isn't it nice to have a group of friends who you can say things like this to who get it and don't judge? Love having friends alongside me in the foster/adopt world
