I miss you, my blog friends.
But, getting rid of 3 kids in one month is arduous work.
- Carolina is safety back home in Mexico. Adios my sweet little girl. And thanks for all the half full bottles of shampoo and lotion, the black umbrella and those last few squirts of your expensive perfume you left me in your room.
- Molly is in "the big city" (Toronto) and learning to be grown-up. Thanks for the beautiful Asian-inspired print, lost Mommy-underwear, 13 empty water bottles, 2 extremely crusty cups and 1 hold-your-mouth-and-don't-breathe covered plastic bowl of science experiment you left me in your room ............... and oh yeah! your contribution to these: I miss you terribly, love you deeply and pray for you every night. Fly! my pretty one. Fly!
And of course, after they leave there's the clean-up and re-organization to be done. Elly moved into Carolina's bigger room, Libby moved upstairs to Elly's smaller room, and Sandy got out the vacuum, cleaning supplies, industrial sized garbage bags, storage boxes and paint!.
Is it wrong to 'child-proof' your home when they finally move out? To say "Have a nice life." "Call me once in a while" and "Please come home to VISIT me every now and then"
Elly leaves on Thursday! She'll be back at the end of August along with a young Brazilian girl. So, I'm trying to clean and organize now, because 2 months of indulgence and irresponsibility are ahead of me! Ask me if I'm excited?
