Frustration and a complete inability to let it go...

Ok, I will warn you now. I am about to vent...

Today our foster son's social worker came to pick him up for a Dr. visit. We had all just gotten up and we were all still in our pjs when she arrived. She looked at our 2 year old and said, "Aren't you cute. Your hair is so pretty. I believe this is the best I have ever seen you look. You usually have food all in your hair."

WHAT!?!?!?!

OMGosh! I have no idea where that came from and I was just shocked. When she is at our home we usually are not dressed in our best because we are living our daily routine. However, our 2 year old's naturally curly hair was NOT looking great when she just got up this morning. Soooo...for her to think that was her best look is WEIRD!

I have had this on my mind all day. I tend to dwell on things. I even watched "Blonde and Blonder" with Denise Richards and Pamela Anderson and it didn't take my mind off of it. LOL! Yes, that movie is just as dumb as you think it would be. I love a dumb movie every now and then. I miss Pauly Shore!

Anyway, I am now concerned that they are trying to come up with reasons not to place our foster son with us for adoption. We are struggling with this decision but I do hope they don't try to make it for us. Especially if they have to make things up. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried though. Foster parenting tends to make you bitter at the system.

I am sorry but I had to get this out. Hope you are having a Happy Wednesday!

People like her should think before they speak - how rude!! My husband is a clinical psychologist who deals a lot with the foster system and he is never impressed by the case workers! You are doing a wonderful thing - keep it up and don't worry about her! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Oh, that would irritate me too! It does sound like they are fishing for excuses. Grrrr.

Besides, how many two year olds are clean when they are at home, anyhow?!?!?!?! :-p
