We would like to adopt ONE baby from foster care. The likelihood of that seems low. There are tons of sibling groups in foster homes. We think that we might feel overwhelmed by more than one baby, that’s why we want to start out with one baby … so that we can ease into parenting. That sounds all well and fine and good, but … I keep having the nagging suspicion that we are going to end up with twins.
I know how stupid this sounds, but … I keep ending up with two of everything .. on accident. Our home inspection is coming up and we have two empty bedrooms with two available beds. We’ve only designated one as the “baby room” but the other is just a spare/guest room that He uses to play videogames in when we don’t have company. The room is designed with superheroes …. hmmm …
We are trying to dot our “i”s and cross our “t”s and I realized that I bought two wooden squares with star, circle, oval, etc. cut-outs. There are two sets of plastic tools. We have two Shamu SeaWorld pails. We have two Crayola 36 crayon boxes. I have the sneaking suspicion that we are going to end up with two kids.
Twins would be awesome because they are going through similar developmental stages around the same time and twins would be horrible because they are going through similar developmental stages around the same time! Lol The more commonplace situation would be that we’d get a toddler with a younger sibling. I’ve been buying clothes for kids from newborn to 2 years old with the goal of having at least a few items so regardless of the age of the kid we get, we’ll have enough items to survive for a few days without having to run out to buy things. We’ll have a day or two to get our bearings. Maybe I’ve been preparing for having two kids all along ….
This should be interesting.
