Well, the date is nearly here for us all to move. Friday is their last day at school and I am dreading it. They are excited and smiley, which in some ways is wonderful, but I worry that they wont be the same happy confident children in their new place, because of such a big change. I want them to settle in and make friends and carry on being their happy selves. Am I being over sentimental? For example my eldest had all his lovely hair cut off yesterday, which was VERY long, and he looks gorgeous with it all short, but it is like another thing gone. Do you know what I mean? I am looking forward to the move, but to be honest I didn't realise I would be such an emotional wreck, in tears an nearly everything x

It's normal for you to worry about such a big change and you should probably brace yourself for some kind of change in your kids. However, just be aware that at the moment they don't sound like they're particularly anxious and you need to be careful that you don't make them anxious yourself!

Try to remain positive and your kids will hopefully stay positive too

Thanks Squitten. I never knew how emotionally draining this would be, and how scared I would be. But deep down I know we can get through this and a new fresh start is what we all need! As soon as they see their new school and hopefully like it, then I can relax
