R.E.S.P.I.T.E. Find Out What It Means To Me...

That's right, after nearly 3 months of going nonstop, this Mommy & Daddy get a night off. Little Buddy is headed to his former foster Mommy's house to spend the night (they have a really good, healthy relationship). Gramsie and GramPapa are coming over this evening and watching SweetPea for a few hours. DH and I are going to go on a double date with AuntieMoo & Uncle Kiwi (my SIL and BIL) for a lovely dinner.

Sweet relief.

Ever kicked around the idea of becoming a foster or fost/adopt home? Did you know that you can become a respite care provider and "get your feet wet" to see how it all works (without making the full blown commitment)? Us foster families so appreciate being able to have a few hours (or overnight) to recover and regroup. It keeps us healthy and, in turn, is great for our kiddos, as well.



And so it goes said...

Thanks for this idea. In the future, being a foster home is something that I really want to explore. But it does seem overwhelming to commit to. And my husband has even more reservations. But this is a great option to consider as a feet wetting opportunity. I'll keep it in mind.

Amen, Sister! We so need a break. Respite care is so hard to find. Thanks for the post!

I'm moving our website this week to
Any pointers?

I did not know that. That's pretty great. May be something I need to look into in the future. :-)
