Bit of an update.

I kept the topic in the air over the last week but without pushing the girls on it. My main thing was to make sure that Daughter #2 knew that I recognised she was having some feelings about the move.

Without much prompting, Daughter #2 yesterday started talking about it in terms of 'if' we move to the new house...

How big is the garden???
Could we have one of those inflatable swimming pools??
Could we go see it some time??

🙂

Sounds like time has resolved the issue. Slow and steady wins the race. Hopefully some of the anxiety around the situation is easing for all of you.

I am glad that everything is working out for you. I am hopeful for myself as well. I recently broke up with my SO so I have been a little down these past few weeks and my children have been sad about it

It's a wrench to do this, and of course you will have a variety of emotions at first. You need to look after yourself as a first priority, which will also be more positive for your kids if they see you happier.

Ah, it's not good if your kids are sad at a time when you're not so great as well. Potentially tough time of year to go through this as well.

As long as you make time for them and in particular to talk about what's going on, you'll all help each other to get through it?
