We are moving to North Carolina from Texas at the end of January. It's a temporary move and we will be back home within a year. My 2 year old daughter loves her preschool and has lots of "fwiends" that she has been talking about endlessly since the Christmas break. I am enrolling her in another preschool once we move...but how do I explain to her about our move? I am not sure how to make her understand what's happening.

I totally understand where you are coming from. My 2 1/2 year old will be making her first cross country move at age 3. Her Daddy is in the Navy so this will be a way of life for her. I would just try telling your DD that you are going somewhere new to make more NEW friends and that in about 12 months you will come back and see her old friends again. Then buy her a calendar so you guys can count down the months till she can go back to her old preschool. I'm guessing with in a few months she will "forget" the old friends. This should help a little though.
