I just found out that my DH, DS and I are moving to Kansas City. We currently live about 200 miles outside of KC. What's the big deal? I've never lived more than 10 miles from my parents, we have an extremely strong relationship and my son is their only grand-baby. I am a recent SAHM so we get to spend a lot of quality time together. I don't know anyone in KC. Our current house is 2000 sq ft. and we'll be downsizing to an apartment less than 1000 sq. ft. It's just all so overwhelming to me now. I think the biggest thing is not being around my mom and dad. They are in their late 60's and 70's and I just want for them to be able to spend as much time as possible with the baby as they can. I sound like a scared 11 year old and that's really how I feel. I'm 35 years old!! Can anyone help shed some light on my situation or have you ever been in a similar situation?Answer Question

I have totally been there. My husband and I moved from our small NC town to a DC suburb for his job. I had a similar relationship with Dh's parents and my mom. It was terrible to leave. For a while when I was up there, I grieved like someone had died. The I pulled myself together and made s few friends. Mostly neighbors. We were 400 miles away from family so just going for a visit was not easy. My 2 friends really helped me thru get thru it. Get you son involved in a playgroup, if he's not in school yet. It makes it easy to meet other mom's as well. it will be hard at first, but once thing settle down a bit, it gets easier. Good Luck to you.
