Sunshine's Savings Plan

Sunshine announced at dinner tonight that she is saving her birthday money till she grows up so she can buy herself some deodorant. "I don't want you to buy that for me. I want to use my own money."

Putting it here so I can prove this to her later. Just saved myself a couple bucks. :)

Speed's Negotiations for Continuing to Foster

Speed is getting impatient for a friend. He overheard me say "no" to a call the other day (for TWO kids) and started his negotiations.

These included:
Chickadee sleeping in my room "since her sneak in there all the time anyway" so the new friends could have her room.
One of the friends staying with their mom while the other one came to us.
He's even discussed car seat placement.

The calls have come in waves. When we aren't getting calls, he doesn't ask about anything but if he hears me say "no" to a call, he negotiates his little heart out. Thankfully, he is unaware of the times I have said yes, thinking that kiddo is a good fit for us, and things have fallen through.

Who's On First?

Speed: You're right, Sunshine! (about what, I don't know.)
Sunshine: I'm not WHITE!
Speed: No, not WHITE, RIGHT! You RIGHT!
Sunshine: Speed! I'm not white. Quit saying I'm white.
Speed: No, I mean like, you are smart. You know the right thing. You are so smart.
