And although my 7 year old has moved 3 times in his life so far, he's not really used to it. My 5 year old and my 2 year old don't remember the last move (he was only 3 and she was only 6 weeks old) so they're not used to it either.
|Goodbye to our old house....|
How hard it is to change.
Thinking about things as the "last".
The last time we're seeing our school friends.
The last time we're going to after school classes.
The last time we're sleeping in our house.
The last time...
The part where you say goodbye and that you'll keep in touch (but you really don't). The part where you know you'll never be back.
I get through it by not thinking about it. But it's hard to explain that to my kids.
But when they leave this house tomorrow for visitation with their father, they won't come back. They won't live here anymore.
It's the reality.
And it's my job to remind them it's ok to be a little sad. Goodbyes usually are. But that you just pick your head up and look to the future.
You take a deep breath and walk out the door. It's hard to be brave sometimes. But it's a good quality to have.
Just Keep Coming Back.
