MY FIRST job once I get my children off to school, is to take Harry to his nursery class.
I need to make sure I get home quickly as Megan is due her feed and morning nap.
I spend the next few hours keeping Megan entertained and keeping my records up to date. I have to log all activity, food, development and sleep times for each fostered child each day.
I take a call from my social worker - I have a dedicated social worker, as do each of the foster children. We arrange a time for my review meeting later in the week.
My diary is packed with appointments for when I need to be at home for visits or take the children to different places. I head back to the nursery to pick up Harry who is all smiles and showing me the drawing he did.
Back at home I prepare lunch and we finish eating just as Megan gets picked up to take her to her supervised contact meeting with her family.
I hand over her diary so her family can see what she has been up to. Megan has regular contact with her family, Harry doesn’t.
While Megan is out I spend some time doing painting with Harry. We go to pick my children up from school and get back just in time for when Megan returns.
My children are doing their homework and Harry is insisting on helping them. Meanwhile I’m preparing spaghetti
