exit Luna

Today was Luna’s last day. As she’s been lately, she was smiling, pleasant, talkative, and affectionate. Naturally.

Her father dropped her off. He gave no indication that he realized it was her last day. He didn’t say thank you. He barely said good-bye.

Since he was often the one who acted like I was chaining her to a table leg to make wallets for export, this isn’t surprising, although it is pretty rude.

Her mother picked her up. Aside from telling Luna to give her friends good-bye hugs, she barely acknowledged the situation, either. She tossed a ‘thanks for everything’ over her shoulder as she was walking out the door.

So, the revised roster is:

Louis, 33 months

Pixie, 31 months

Daisy, 12 months

Baby G, 11 months

Ron, 4.5 years


Harry, 7 years

Daisy’s brother Arthur, 5 years

Only six more working days until Christmas vacation!



  1. Wait, what? You mean that isn’t the reason you have a dayhome? To make wallets for export? But they have such little hands! How else will you make all those wallets?

    Jeeeeeeeez Louise. Glad Luna’s gone because now you don’t have to deal with such fuckwads.

    • If I could monetize their tiny fingers somehow, I could make a lot more money…

  2. Hm. So how to respond: relieved that they didn’t pull out some stops to be appreciative, which would have made the parting harder, or annoyed that there was so little recognition of your professionalism, caring, and hard work?

    Meh. It’s a chapter you’re not entirely sorry to see end. No matter how it ended, it’s done. It will be interesting to see if/how the dynamic among the kidlets changes with her departure.

    • Yes, me too. I know that all next week they’ll be asking where she is, because they really didn’t understand “this is Luna’s last day”. At all.

  3. Sometimes I have thought I don’t care how they leave, just so long as they do. But WHOO HOO! I’ll have a drink for you tonight! πŸ˜€

    • It’s true. And I honestly expected nothing. So – expectation met. πŸ˜‰

  4. Ugh. Some friggin’ people.

  5. I’m sorry that they were difficult from the get-go, but I bet it has to feel like a relief to be done with them. You sound like you have a great little group going on there!

    • It hasn’t sunk in yet that it’s finally behind me. πŸ™‚

  6. Good riddance. To them, I mean, more than the child.

    • It’s true. The sad thing is Luna was finally starting to like it here. It’s too bad her parents had to screw up the good thing they had going.

      • Those people sound like idiots.
