Welcome to the Moving (with children) series at Parenting Healthy
Why I chose to do this
4 years ago we moved about 80 miles away from family and friends when my husband was given a work promotion. My son was going on 4 and would begin Kindergarten in our new town. I didn’t have to work anymore because of my husbands promotion so I quit my stressful job in the medical field and became a SAHM to our son and my husbands 2 sons. I spent a lot of time volunteering in their schools and eventually joined the PTA board and took a part time job at the High School cafeteria when sitting at home became unbearable. I am not one to just sit. Now my husband with all of his success at work was given a bigger region…back near home.
So in June, after school ends we will pack up and move closer to family again. Anthony is now in third grade, plays several sports in town and has made a fantastic circle of friends here so he did not take leaving very well. Now, he is ok with it. This is the journey I want to highlight.
From how we told our son, to organizing the home, discovering a new town, preparing for good byes and gaining new friends this series is all about getting through a move (with children).
