Also, I finally went and picked up the paper work I have to fill out to send S to daycare. It took me forever because I had to go to down town Flint and that isn't exactly my favorite place to go hang out with the kids. But, regardless, I have it. They said I could mail it back in or come between 8:00 am & 10:30 am and talk to a social worker. Hmmm, should I mail it in and see if they ever get to it or go in? I wish by mailing it I could reply on someone to actually do something with it!
I then got the opportunity to go into my first WIC office. That was equally as lovely. And took much longer. I was at the WIC office because S has WIC. Before going to the WIC office her WIC had been in her first foster parents name ever since she left. I have put this off for so long because I don't do WIC. Boy does that sound snotty or what. As you may have guesses we don't exactly qualify for WIC nor have we ever applied for it even when we could have used it.
I have been wanting to get it transfer out of her old foster mom's just because she is with us now. I am a little weirded out by the thought of actually using it though. I think it come on that "Bridge Card" thing and I am not a huge fan of those. I have never had one but when I shop in Burton, MI I am the only one who doesn't seem to have one so I feel a little left out sometimes ;).
So, I am sure you will read ALL about the first time I actually use one, when & if I actually do. It seems dumb to not take free milk, eggs, bread, cereal, ect. but at the same time should I not use it because technically I can afford to by it for her anyway??? I really would love to hear what you all would do because this has been on my mind ever since the first foster mom told me I should transfer it into my name.
To WIC or not to WIC. That is my question.
