one down...

Sunday, April 1, 2007

Our homestudy visit was yesterday and my house was spotless, (unless you opened the closet doors) thanks to my three great kids and wonderful husband. I didn't realize we could get so much done in such a short time. Now I know! :)
She got here around 2 p.m. yesterday afternoon and immediately sat down to start visiting. Two hours later she was on her way home. She was very thorough...but not at all intimidating or nosey. We talked a lot about how our current children are doing and how we think they will adjust to a new little one. We also talked about what our expectations are in bringing home a child and what we're doing to get ready, and we talked about our approach to discipline and how that has changed over the past eight years.
We had one minor incident, but that is to be expected with kids who are 8, 6 and 5 years old! Our youngest, JacJac, decided to start showing off...and of course like any kid who loves to be the center of attention, once that starts it just gets worse. He ended up just ignoring our suggestions that he settle down, so he had the priviledge of going to his room and taking a nap! Oh the horrors! Thankfully, we got through it without needing to spank! Whew!
By the way - for those of you who were curious. She didn't look for outlet covers, cabinet locks, smoke detectors or fire extinguishers. She did take a tour, without our prompting, but didn't say anything about needing a safety gate in front of our very steep stairs.
All in all a pretty quiet homestudy...thank goodness! Now we just have to get all of the rest of our paperwork done! :)
