Dad usually texts me to tell me if he has money to buy Baby lunch or if he would like me to send one. I got a text yesterday saying they were going out to eat. Great :) Last night I had to take my5 yo son to the ER because he broke his arm (ahhh!) Well, while there my cell battery died and I didn't plug it in until this morning after Baby left. There was a message from Dad saying he didn't end up getting paid yesterday and please pack a lunch. Ummmmm......too late! I texted the CM and asked her to give Dad a couple of bucks so Baby could eat! Sheesh! Thank God she had $5 on her :)
Let me tell you how "nice" it was to be sitting at the hospital with a child not having to worry about notifying a parent, CM, GAL or anyone else that he was there-LOL! Life as a foster parent :) In the past 4 months 3 of my children have been in the ER/admitted....I am praying over #4 like crazy! :) Moosie was his finger, then Baby with RSV and Isaac with a broken arm from those evil monkey bars!!! We've had the same doctor twice (I really like him) and several of the same nurses. Maybe we can get a frequent member card or something! lol! I knew Isaac would be the first with a broken bone and I know we have many more visits to the ER ahead with 4 wild boys!!
As a little side story...let me tell you it was the most interesting ER visit yet! In the 1/2 or so we had to wait we met the "toothless" family (children have no tact!lol!), the lady crying/vomiting/and "acting scary" and then there was the girl who was clearly not mentally stable who walked up to me, got in my face and asked me to cut her hospital bracelet off (she also later asked someone for alcohol too and stood in the vomiting woman's face and kept asking how old she was...the cuts up this girl's arms were hard to look at :( ). Once we were finally in the back (only separated by a very thin curtain) a 13 yr old girl was getting Baker Acted :( Rough night in the ER!
