So we've had the girl for almost a week. I need her mom to sign some papers for school and we've been calling her for two days. No answer. Im starting to freak out.
Yesterday ew, we'll call her Nancy, came over to pick up my sds. But instead of taking them with her. She asked to speak to dh and I. I knew it was big since she included me in the conversation. Basically, she and her current dh are divorcing, he's a big heroin addict. He drained their savings and his car was repoed this week. She's going to be staying with a co-worker until she finds a place to stay. So she asked if her dd could stay with us while she gets herself together. She said none of her family would take her. Tbh, I really don't want to. This little girl is a handful and I have four kids to deal with already. Dh and I discussed it last night, he's willing to. But because he won't have to do any work. Plus financially its going to make things tight. We budget for the six of us, adding a seventh person to the mix will be a huge adjustment. Nancy already owes cs for sd and me money for babysitting a bit ago. I've come up with a million reasons why we shouldn't, but three why we should, my sds and I don't want to see this little girl going from couch to couch.
So when dh gets up, I'm telling him to go pick up the little girl and stop at the liquor store on the way home. I'm going to need something stronger then coffee.
Eta: the girl is NOT my husband's child. She is his ex wifes daughter. That's why I said her daughter. We are custodial parents to his dds. I get that its early.
