to be thinking are we doing the right thing?

It's my DD's last day at school tomorrow as we're moving house. We're both terribly upset but the move had to come as we can't afford to live where we're living and I need to be nearer to my dad (as my mother passed away a few months ago) and DP will be nearer to work. We won't be that far away but I know how difficult it is to stay in touch even with the best intentions! I am awful at saying goodbye and even worse when I see my DD upset - argh why does life have to be bloody difficult!

Kids are resilient - she'll be fine. I moved at 8 and 14 and it was not easy, particularly the second time, but I was fine.

Thanks Euphemia - I think I just need to keep on thinking that we are doing the best for the whole family even though it seems really hard at the moment.

You are doing the right thing. It will get easier for you.
Good luck!

Good for you, sounds like you are doing all for the right reasons.
