Today (S) referred to DW by her first name as she always has, but added "mommy" to the end of it. She has never said anything like that before. She calls everyone by their first name. She is so confused. The more things that occur, the more angry I get with her parents. The ones who apparently just don't care any more. I think each child is just another 400 or 500 dollars a month in assistance. Sicne they had 5 of them, thats close to $30,000 per year TAX FREE!!

My daughter is a teacher and doesn't make that much money and what she does make, she has to pay taxes on.

We make it too easy for people to get assistance. Illegal aliens get better health care than many hard working people and parents like (S)'s get all sorts of services from the state and do absolutely nothing. Oh, won't believe this one. I don't know if I should tell you here as you might think I am making this up, but I assure you this is the truth...........The state has been paying for bio-dad to go to school and get an education. In and of itself, not a bad thing until you find out what he is studying.........................He wants to be a social worker.......No kidding....its the truth.....I swear on a stack of bibles.....How stupid can the state be?

Well, I got off the subject. Anyway, as I said, (S) referred to DW using "mommy". I don't know what that means other than she is confused, but why now? She has been here for 15 months and never once used that term and tonight it comes from out of the blue. I wish she could tell us what is going on in her head, but I guess it isn't really important. We will continue to treat her like she was our own child and hope that in the end everything works out for the best. Whether for the best or not however, we have no control over that. That is up to a higher power than us.



  1. The mommy and daddy thing is hard to figure out when you didn't encourage it. Personally, I call my grandmother mom. I have a mom, and she was teenage mom. We lived with my grandmother, my mom and aunts called her mom. So I did too. I knew she was my grandma, but I called her mom and my mom mommy. It's funny and confusing to other people (even my husband). I still do it today! LOL! Maybe she heard your children say mom? I'm sure she knows, she just being affectionate? I always knew my grandmother was my grandmother, but I call her mom.

  2. I have kids call me mommy at the nursery all the time and I'm only around them for a few hours, but it is strange that she just suddenly started it overnight.

    The state's approach is really frustrating. One case in our county has had 11 children taken away by the state. Why won't the state just require mom to get the Depro-Provera shot? They put reproductive rights first, but what about the kids that are neglected and abandoned?
