I bought a book for my munchkins to help sort out the emotions they may feel from this upcoming move.
"Alexander, Who's Not (Do you hear me? I mean it!) Going to Move" BY: Judith Viorst.
The big munchkin has expressed feelings of missing his best friends, and school, and our town in general. The mini munchkin is more concerned with funny things like "will we be able to take my closet door?" As I read to them last night something strange happened, I actually got sad! Shocking I know. My close friends and family know I can't wait to get further out west, where I am from.
I feel so sorry for uprooting them both, changing everything they know. There are a million positives about this big change, but there are negatives too. Mainly for my kids. Am I a bad mom?? I can't wait to be closer to all my family on the west coast, to be able to spend holidays with cousins, aunts, uncles, & everyone. To be able to attend friends' baby showers & weddings, to just be closer to those that mean so much to me and let them know my little family.
*ugh* this is such a pain in the butt!! I never anticipated getting attached to this goofy little southern town. I am going to miss the friends I have made here, and all the wonderful memories from bring my babies home from the hospital, up until them being 4 and 5 now. There will be so many things to miss and I never even expected it. I'm such a doofus.
Any advice from those who have moved with kids?
Ta Ta for now
