And with a dismissive wave of the hand...

Queen Bee whittles me down to the land of the insignificant as she embarks tonight upon her first real sleepover.

Mother is feeling a little .... verklempf.

I am no longer the "one" in this child's life. I have been temporarily replaced by another mother. One who lives in a 1/2 million dollar home, drives a Corvette convertible, and takes her children to the pool for hours and hours of water fun.

Damn.

That is such a sad point in a mother's life. I lost S for an entire weekend to a family with snowmobiles, a camp, a pool table and a hot tub. That kid didn't want to come home at all.

Yes .. today ... one week from the time she spent there ... Queen says to me: Hey Mommy .. do you want to belong to that big pool? It really is nice. To which I responded that if she had the $ 700 in her pocket that it took to "belong" there, fork it over ... and I would buy groceries with it.

The Lovely She, that is me!

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.

The five-year-old with the 13-year-old attitude, who has a dictator's personality, asks you to watch her all the time and say "hold on" to keep your attention, and will someday come home on the back of some dude's motorcycle with 10 tatts and a body piercing or two.

Good morning to my new renter!!!
Oh who are the people in your neighborhood?
Break out the wine and the margaritas
All grown up
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Nightmares abound
Coddled Customers, or Why I Would Never Make a Goo...
Godspeed, little bird
