Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I was so focused on my bust of a craft fair on Saturday, that I completely forgot to write about our adventures that night! Since we’re halfway through October, my mom decided that we could spend the night shopping for Halloween costumes. That is always quite a feat with the amount of kids in our family.
Going into costume shopping, both of my twin sisters were completely set on being the same thing, but I was happily surprised when one of the girls changed her mind after seeing all that the costume store had to offer. We have a plethora of characters in our midst this year, and it looks like everyone picked out some good stuff for this Halloween.
As for me, I still have no idea what I’m doing this year. I know, you’re probably thinking, this girl is twenty years old, why in the world would she be dressing up? Well, first of all, I always go trick-or-treating with my siblings if I’m home. And there’s no way that I’m walking around if I’m not in some kind of costume. And second of all, I volunteer in my elementary school all of the time, and Halloween is on a Friday this year, which is the one day that I have free to go in. So hopefully I’ll be spending the day of Halloween in a kindergarten classroom, in which case, dressing up is a major requirement.
The biggest problem is that when you’re a twenty-year-old girl (alright, woman…. I don’t want to grow up yet!!), 99% of the costumes that you can buy are skimpy little nothing outfits that I wouldn’t be caught dead in. Besides the fact, you just can’t wear a mini-dress to a kindergarten classroom. We’ll just have to see what happens… with any luck, I’ll find a costume before Halloween!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
