I made it facebook offical today that the kids and I will be moving back to where I came from 6 hours away.  My daughters friends moms (who I am friends with as well) keep posting about how its going to break their kids hearts to not have Gabby around. Its so emotional for me and I honestly am rethinking my decision. I know we need to move to better myself and to have more opportunities but the thought of my baby leaving her best friends that she has grown up with absolutely breaks my heart.  She has such nice friends. She is 9 and grew up with these kids, and I know theyll all be upset.. Im sitting here crying knowing the decision I have to make but its sooo heart wrenching... How do I handle this? DD was devastated at first but when I reminded her that her Dad is where we will be moving,as well as her cousins and shed make new friends and there are soooo many more things to do there she got excited, but I dont think its hit her yet. How do I deal with this? ? Ive cried almost everytime someone leaves a comment!

I'm sorry, mama. I don't know what to tell you but here's a bump.

Get a grip. How many friends do you have now that you had when you were 9? It is not like she is a senior in high school and you are taking graduation away. It sounds like this is a move you need to make. Don't let guilt keep you from doing what is best for your family.

 Trust me when I say this, I'm a military brat, we moved around a lot and I had to make new friends every time. It helped me a lot with my shyness. She'll be alright as soon as she starts to make friends. Hopefully she'll never forget her old ones, but she'll make new ones soon enough.

Just keep assuring her that everything will be ok but at the same time she will still be sad, let her know that she can always call her friend or maybe even visit once a yr when the funds are available...

That's just their way of telling you how much they love you and will miss you. They don't mean to make it harder and don't realize that they are. Just try and remember that. :)

Quoting RLT2:

I know they arent, but its heart breaking still.
