Making work fun
June 6, 2008 6:45pm CST
My friend and I work at the same place on the same shifts and we have to work tonight for the nightshift. We are both bringing some munchies to eat and figuring out our new business we're starting in July. We were so miserable with our job that we found a new way to make ourselves happy by starting an inhome daycare. We figure that it would be nice to be our own bosses and have mutual partnership will give us somewhat of an accomplishment feeling. If our daycare business takes off and works out for the best then we figure we are going to quit our job we have now or drop down to a lower point position. If we completely quit we will have to count on this daycare to work which I think it will because of the high demand for it and there are many parents on a waiting list for at least 1 year. If we both stay at our job now and drop down a couple shifts then if the daycare doesn't work (knock on wood) then we'll still have some financial back up. I also phoned about becoming a foster parent too. Apparently there are foster children living in hotels waiting to get into homes and to me that's terrible and makes me very sad . My hubby and I give my son a very stable life and would love to help another child with that. Although I've heard horror stories about having fosterchildren, I am more looking for infants. If I do end up with an older child so be it, we will do our best with helping them out for a temporary time. I think the hardest part of doing fostercare is the acceptance of not becoming attached to the child because it is only for a temporary time.

rd. and you know there are more kids out there than babies that need care. Thats the thing ya become attached to them and it dont take long. way witht the kids that came stayed with us they all ended up calling me mom but they only stay till they could get along with parents some times a week or tweo then things got worked out nop It wasnt foster care just kids that ended up stay with us at times I still get calls from some of them even if I am 18oo miles away now!

If I do agree to take foster kids, and we had to let them go, I would encourage them to call us just to keep in touch. It's sad how kids are sent from home to home and it's not very stable at all. My son had a friend in his grade one class who was a fosterchild and he became close friends with that child and at the end of the school year his foster parents were told that a new home was found for him so not only did it effect the foster parents, but it effected my son as well. I tried to explain to my son about the kid and he seemed to be okay with it after he understood what happened. Thanks for your comment
