I should apologize in advance for Twittering, Instagramming and blogging this gem. But I can't. I find it brilliant.
I messaged a friend last night about 5 hours into 12-18 hours of our online parenting courses mandated for our adoption processing and the photo is her advice. Do understand that she is a licensed teacher and parent of a toddler and preschooler. (Love their names, Linc and Rory.)
I must give credit to the program. Although my brain is melting and I truly forgot the joys of working all day and school all night ('98, HTI, Phoenix anyone?) it has been very helpful. I have handy printable sheets to ask all the 411 I need to know about our future kids from the caseworker. I have tools and tips for attachment parenting, doctors visits, school, house rules and friends. There are a million things I hadn't though of, had thought of and didn't even know about. There are many things I hope to study deeper once we clear Sunday's homestudy.
It is currently a bit of a blur. Lucky for me being busy and engaged keeps me fairly focused and keeps Stressed under lock and key. The punk likes to cause trouble. If it weren't for church I'm sure my friends would be concerned over my absence. I try and point out it is no different than nesting and developing in the stages of pregnancy. Just a much different gestation period.
