Thief.

I ran to the grocery store today and I had Lizzy in one of those carts that has a car attached to them for little kids to sit in. I wasn't paying attention while we were checking out and once I was in the parking lot I saw Lizzy had a Mounds in her hand that I hadn't paid for.

I turned the cart around and as I was walking back into the store I almost bumped into one of the social workers from our agency. I haven't worked with this worker so I didn't say anything to her.

I had to laugh that of course a worker would be there as I catch Lizzy stealing for the first time.
(at least from the store, all my kids have had sticky fingers when we go to other people's houses...anyone who hasn't had a foster child yet might want to watch out for that)

We had a sweet girl who stole some gum from the check out...her response? She "wanted to go to jail with mommy". Sweet kids, with some distorted ideas of life.
(I haven't been commenting much, but have been catching up on reading. Looks like a lot is going on in your household and with Lizzy. Keep pressing on!)

Too funny! Booger Bear had a habit of stealing toys from daycare. His CHURCH daycare!!! Every morning, I would have to return whatever little toy he happened to sneak out the night before (usually those rings from the stacking ring sets). :-)

I had to laugh when I read about the social worker! They seem to be everywhere when you don't need them, don't they!

You don't want to know how many toys we have from social services...
