NEW FOSTER BABY Friday night was date night! We had child care arranged and were looking forward to a nice dinner together. Something Foster Dad and I rarely get to do having 3- and 1-year-old boys.

However, he is now adjusting well (since we began feeding him with a Dr. Brown’s bottle) and giving us smiles and giggles! He will be moving to another foster home in a few days.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger I cannot say that I am a fan of Dr. Laura. She really grates on my nerves with how rude and condescending she can be to her callers. I am not sad at all for her to end her talk show. (If you haven’t heard, she is quitting her show by not [...]
