Today we meet Artichoke and Zucchini's mom.  We are nervous.  Typically, foster parents and birth parents meet for the first time at a meeting or court hearing.  The children, especially young ones, do not typically attend these since the case is discussed in detail and they typically would have no input or need to hear the status. 
But as we discussed before- nothing goes as planned.  Because of the holiday yesterday, their typical family visit was cancelled.  So we agreed to bring the boys with us so they would be able to see their mom at least for a little bit this week.  This makes us even more nervous.  I'm more worried about what awkwardness they will witness than actually being involved in the said awkwardness.
The selfish part of me wants to leave the boys in daycare today because it would definitely make things A LOT easier today for us.  But they love their mom.  And they are always SO excited to see her.  So I don't want to be the person to deny that.
