For one, Little Bit will be joining us during the day for the next few months. I will be doing daycare for my very best friends little guy, who joined their family about a month ago. It will be a new adventure to have a little, little person around the house.
Tomorrow I am also "officially open" again for new kids. I haven't got any calls yet, but could any day now. I have prepped the extra room and moved the office back into my room. The laundry and dishes are done and now we wait for whatever adventure is next.
It is a strange thing, waiting for placements. You know that you could have kids tomorrow, but you don't know even the basics, age (I'm open to 0-10 for boys and 0-15 for girls), gender, interests background story, where they go to school, special needs, etc., etc., etc. I used to try to imagine it, but I have realized that's impossible for all the above reasons. I used to try to prepare for it, but again impossible. The best I have found that I can do is be set to "first position" and have extra clothes and toys on hand. By first position I mean... clean house, empty room with a bed, dresser, blankets and hangers in the closet and all the extras out in the garage.
And then the waiting begins. Everything else comes after the call.
So, goodbye cocoon. I have so enjoyed you and one on one time with my girl. But am excited to see what new life emerges.
