David and the baby. Venice Beach. Saturday afternoon. We are getting our share of sand and sun and salty air. It's good for all of us to be away together, even if it isn't that far away. Traveling together makes us closer. Traveling together helps turn the kids into siblings. Every crazy road trip turns us into a stronger family. #memorialdayweekend #memorialday #summer #beach #family #love #thisisfostercare #fosterkid #fostercare #foatercareis #fosterfamily #fosterparents #fatherhood #fatherhoodthroughinstagram #babies #beachbaby #kids #toddler #toddlers #toddlersofinstagram #longhair #menslonghair #venicebeach #california

After making ratatouille for Lucy'a student council lunch, edie and I made a pan Just for the family. The last time I made this confit byaldi, I didn't make enough and a fight broke out amongst the kids over who got the last bites. To prevent another smackdown at the dinner table, I made a super-size one in my paella pan and now we are all standing over the pan stuffing our faces. Dinner isn't for another two hours. #cooking #cookingtogether #eatingtogether #confitbiyaldi #ratatouille #frenchcomfortfood #love #family #foodkidslove #kidfood #eatyourveggies #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram

Edie, making the Confit Byaldi (ratatouille) that Lucy requested as part of her student council lunch. Some of the kids in student council didn't know ratatouille was a real thing. Lucy is Preparing to blow some middle school minds today. #lunch #middleschool #eatingtogether #love #homecooking #cookingtogether #cooking #homeschool

The baby is not so much a baby anymore. She is getting to be an exceptional play mate for her siblings, and a total ballsy little human. Also you can see the boy is getting some very serious height on his Mohawk, which pleases him to no end. #babies #baby #babiesofinstagram #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #love #family #fostercare #fosterfamily ##thisisfostercare #fostertoadopt #adopt #adoption #mohawk #boys #boyhood #boyshaircuts #son #fosterson #siblings #almostsummer

This photo of me in my kitchen was taken by super-talented photographer, @ewphoto. There are more of these beautiful photos on my blog today, and also an essay about our decision to close our foster license, and to be there for foster kids in a completely different way. I hope you will read along.

This is where we are tonight, but truly I should've let Lucy come as David's date. We keep having to google everyone to see who the acts are. Ha ha ha ha...so fucking old. #billboards2017 #billboardmusicawards2017 ##bbmas2017 #bbmas

Our boy is on the right, his best friend, West, is on the left. They spent all evening together and we found them like this. It's all happening for our boy - all the normal, boyhood, bro-connectivity, friendship stuff that we hoped he would have in his life, but felt impossible for him. This makes us unfathomably happy. We love these two dudes. They are both so special. #friends #friendship #love #family #boyhood #thisisfostercare #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhood #fostercare #fosterson #parenthood #parenting #boys #boy #dudes #bro #brosforlife #bros

Yesterday, I was really sick, flu, stomach bug, something gross and wrong. David was working in LA. I wasn't sure how I'd keep up with her, but when she saw me in bed, she jumped up, laid on my chest and we watched nursery rhymes together all cuddled up. We stayed that way for the longest time and it was a reminder to me, who never sits down, always something to do, that we don't always have to be doing stuff. We can just be, and that's good too. Sometimes better. #baby #toddler #flu #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #love #family #fostercare #fosterkid #fosterdaughter #thisisfostercare #fostertoadopt #adopt #adoption
