She is Such a Wonderful Handful
This is the little beast in action. Someone forgot to buckle her in and she refused to sit b/c she could see the chocolate cupcakes were almost close enough to reach. Shortly after, she attacked an orange marker til it's death. She was asked to show me her tongue and that's why it's sticking out in that photo. (Notice my new paint on the wall behind her in the highchair!)
Kiera has a nasty cold that has produced an enormous amount of snot. Seriously, she shouldn't have this much fluid in her entire body much less her head. She has learned a new word, die. She screams it over and over and points at things. It cracks me up when she does it to the computer or another kid.
Patches is so glad to be home. So far no new secrets or skills. I don't think I will ever send another child to a facility again unless they can no longer live here. It was a waste of time, energy, and a huge waste of money. None of it was covered by Medicaid b/c they do not accept it and it was $510 a day plus all the wonderful things that they bill for like food, soap, shampoo, administrative fees, and so on. Ruthie is now asking for a break from us. I asked her where she planned on going and she said the "cool hospital that Patches went to". I told her that was a great idea when she came up with the money to pay for it.
