Is It Really That Bad

When you go to the pharmacy for the 114th time in a month to pick up "some one's" prescription and for the life of you, you can't remember their birth date? (and sometimes last names)
The little pharmacy girl looks at me like I belong on the world's worst mama list. (she may be right) But if she only knew how many birthday's, day's they came to live with us, court dates, check up dates, SW worker visit dates, that float around in my brain at any given time...she just might be impressed that I know my own name.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I had to actually write it out while sitting in the drive-thru when I was picking up for our 3 newest boys. Add to that the fact that none of them go by their first names I had to figure that out, too!

I have to make cheat sheets for my wallet.I have had that awkward moment too.Standing their having no idea what a childs last name is,or when their bday is.People don't understand 1/2 the time we don't even have that info for a month after placement.

I'd so love to have you pull the pharmacy girl aside for just five minutes and give her even a small glimpse of your life as a foster mom - the things you've seen and experienced. Her head would pop right off.
