Frodo and Rose
So my teenagers are hobbits. I have a girl hobbit (very rare) and a boy hobbit. They are brother and sister. They are short, hairy, dry witted, and quiet. Hobbits. Boy I will call Frodo - duh. The only girl hobbit name I could find on Google was Rose. Which fits with some other girl names I have chosen.
Frodo came to stay in February and Rose joined us in April. *Knock on wood* They are fairly easy kids. They have not been in the system very long so there are not any major attachment issues or acting out. Frodo can be pretty passive aggressive at times but he does not know that I had 28 years of my grandmother training me for that shit. He's got nothing on a 75 year old Italian Catholic.
Rose has some girlie medical problems going on. Evident to me just by looking at her (did I mention fuzzy?) that we are starting to deal with. Since apparently now one else has eyeballs in her world.
Both are all about the internet and their online communities. They seem to have no desire for face to face socialization outside of school.
They are friendly and personable but painfully shy and a little slow in the mental department, so getting to know them is difficult. I think that is why they are more comfortable with their online relationships right now. Hey, they are not getting drunk, high or pregnant so I am pretty cool with it.
