I thought I'd share something I found funny from my 2006 calendar. It was one of those page-a-day things. This was for Thursday, August 24:
"A Sure Hit"
Someone on the Internet has come up with a great idea for a new Survivor TV show. It features six dads with four kids each, and all are stuck on an island for six weeks and forced to share only one car and one TV (which has no remote). Each kid has to play two sports and take one art or music class. With no access to fast food, each dad has to cook three meals a day plus do housework, correct all homework, do laundry, and attend PTA meetings. Kids vote the men off the island based on such criteria as lunches packed and clothes ironed. The last man on the island is crowned "Mother"--and gets to repeat the experience for eighteen more years.

After being married 14 years and me not getting pregnant, it was time for less-drastic measures than tossing $30K to the wind (for medical procedures) - hubby and I signed with an adoption agency and got started on the homestudy process. We also had to get certified in CPR and had extensive training (parenting classes, HIV awareness, Hepatitis classes, etc.). We needed to be licensed foster parents in order to bring in children from the system that we possibly wanted to adopt.
To make a long story short, we brought in two kids and knew right from the start that they were home. There would never be any other placement for them except in our house. And after over 1 1/2 years of them being with us, we were able to finalize our adoption.
So here I am, 44, with two kids in grade school. A friend of mine from high school recently became a grandma! She's got teenagers and I've got little kids. My sister has teens and 20-ish-aged kids and I've got little kids. I wouldn't trade my littles for the world. They were meant to be with my hubby and I.
