Hello; my name is Sandy; and I'm a slacker AND a rotten mother!

I've been a blogging slacker lately!
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?

When I read the story about "you're girls" Ive got very tired. I've only one girl(age 12)-a little youngster. I try to imagine how live would be with a group of them. Sometimes I would go crazy-U2? Wishing you a little Me-time and a great weekend already. Dutch greating with hear&soul from Sil.

ME time aaaahhhh - I love me time. But actually I now have me time all the time. Now I miss the ones that demanded my time.

You are to funny. I love my alone time but also like my family near. Guess we don't always have the perfect situation at all times. Just think how clean the place will be without any kids at home. You can now buy that white furniture if you want LOL.

WOW! You are amazing! What a sweet wonderful woman you are to do this for so many!
Bless you for that.

Looks like you do have some fun ahead of you.

Enjoy your time. Saying goodbye is harder then you expect but there is some sweetness in your time being your own, isn't there? I want my returned nestling to fly, but not too far.

Doesn't it feel great to successfully launch your babies into the great big world! Good luck to all of you.
