Some news from me: I am fostering a cat mom because she had her 3 kittens in front of my door Saturday so my mission will be to help her raise her kids, make them sociable and then finding for all of them good families.
sometimes i forget the story of my great grandmother accidentally getting high isnt on tumblr so im fixing that
so my my great grandma was a foster parent to this girl who smoked weed. one day she found her plants and, not knowing what they were, thought they were attractive and asked to have one to grow. she started growing this weed plant on a windowsill until one day her daughter came over and started freaking out over it, telling her it was weed. my great grandma suddenly became paranoid that the police were going to come and arrest her, and one day while she was alone, a helicopter flew over the house and she thought it was the police here to take her away. she took the plant and was going to throw it in the trash, but she thought the garbage truck would see it, so she needed to find another place to get rid of it.
she looks over at the chimney, currently lit with a fire.
LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, I WOULD LIKE YOU TO MEET RUBICON.
[pictured: Rubicon being Done With Your Bullshit]
Rubicon is the head of Loqi’s core support crew, the ones who look after his meks. She helped him handle homesickness without him having to admit to such a weakness, and showed him how to work off frustration by directing it into other activities. She started him on mechanical basics, and also was the one who taught him to throw knives.
One week into the new school year and it’s already started. Three thoughts about this issue.
The “Dear Mom and Dad” line could be eliminated and nothing about this project would change.
If the kids can fill out the question boxes on the worksheet then surely the kids could write in the correct words for their family. So, the line could simply be written, “Dear___________________”. This would allow kids being raised by two moms; two dads; by just a dad; by just a mom; a foster parent; grandma; auntie; or Nana, the nurse dog from Peter Pan to fill in the blank with the appropriate words.
If you think the countless number of non Mom and Dad families should just overlook this stuff, imagine if every year your child repeatedly brought home assignments addressed to, “Daddy and Papa”. First, some people would wonder if there was an underlying agenda advocating for a certain type of family formation (not to mention a certain subset of these people would sh*t their pants over such a greeting). Second, you might not care the first few times but after awhile you’d begin to wonder why there couldn’t be some thought put into making school materials applicable to all families.
Jacket’s 5 cousins are back in foster care. Her grandma showed me updated photos and Jacket looked wonderful. She said that Jacket still talks about me sometimes and promised she’d tell her I send my love and gave me her newest phone number.
