No More Foster Mom

Me: Hey Bear, come here and give me a Bear kiss I have some news for you

Bear: Foster Mom, I’m playing!

Me: We need to talk for a quick sec

Bear: Sigh, ok, what

Me: Well, you’ve found your family so you don’t have to worry about finding them any more.

Bear: But I haven’t met anyone, how can I have a family?

Me: Because I’ve decided you need to stay here, you can call me Mom now.

Bear: No more Foster Mom?

Me: No more Foster Mom.

Bear: (Jumps in my lap gives me a quick Bear kiss) Yarn!!!! (Grabs my knitting project and runs)

Me: Sigh

🙂 Bear has joined the family.

No Bear Kiss?

Me: (Hearing splashing noises) Bear, what are you doing?

Bear: (Standing with both front feet in the mostly full water dish) Getting a drink?

Me: Really? With your front feet?

Bear: Ummm Yeah (steps out of the dish and runs towards me) Foster Mom!!!

Me: Bear STOP.

Bear: What? You don’t want a Bear kiss????

Me: Not when the paws that come with that Bear kiss are dripping wet.

Bear: Foster Mom Toes!!!

Me: Bear STOP.

Bear: What?

Me: You are being a pill.

Bear: At least I’m a cute pill! (wags tail)

Puppies and Promises

Bear: Foster Mom! I want outside to play with Rommie (carrying his stuffed toy to the door)

Me: You know you aren’t supposed to take toys out there

Bear: Please foster mom??? I’ll bring it back, I promise.

Me: Sigh, ok, I need to find the rest of toys you guys have taken out there anyway.

Bear: Thanks Foster Mom!!!

30 minutes later

Bear: Foster mom can I come in?

Me: Sure (Opens door)

Bear: (walks in carrying his toy) See I told you!

Me: Yes you did! Can I have a Bear kiss?

Bear: Foster Mom, you got one this morning that should be enough!

Bear: Foster Mom! I want a treat!

Me: I noticed that as you tried to climb my leg.

Bear: But I want a treat.

Me: Then you have to sit.

Bear: I DID! I want a treat.

Me: No you bounced, sit means you stay there for a bit.

Bear: But Foster Mom!!! I really, really want a treat!

Me: Well you need to sit.

Bear: (Sits for about a second and bounces back up) See! I did!

Me: I suppose that works for tonight. (Gives Bear his treat)

Bear: I want another one!!!

Me: Sigh.

Yin and Yang Take 2

My yin and yang are growing and don’t seem to fit anymore.


Bear: Foster Mom! You didn’t say good morning when you put us out this morning.
Me: Oops, no I didn’t, let me fix that. (Picks up Bear and gets three very quick Bear kisses) Good morning Sweetie.
Bear: All done, put me down now. (As soon as his paws hit the floor he was off to play with the crew)
