They aren't going to tell her they are leaving....WTF?
We are PCSing to a different base and this is the first time I will have been away from my family because of the military. My brother and his wife have one DD and she is almost 4 and she is very close to my kids because she is their only cousin. We leave next weekend and tonight my family all got together for a meal out and as my brother and SIL were leaving my mom asked SIL when they were going to tell my niece that her cousins were moving away, and my SIL said she hadn't planned on telling her. My mom thought she was joking but no, my brother and SIL said they will not tell my niece about it because they were hoping she would forget about my children. I was just kinda shocked, shes almost 4, not a baby and to me that is pretty sad that they would just hope that my niece would just forget about her cousins, I mean give me a break. I told my mom that maybe sometime this week we could come over and tell my niece that we are leaving and she probably won't get to see her cousins for a while but that we would visit as much as possible. I don't know I am just at a loss for words for what they said and how they could even think something like that. I should have asked my brother where they both left their common sense today because it was totally lacking. SMH
