im just about to sort out separating from husband. We’ve decided that I will move with the 2 children and originally I was wanting to move to where I grew up about 3 hours from the father. It is a lovely area to grow up.
Now it comes to the crunch I’m not sure it’s the best thing to do. Despite it being a lovely area, will that make a difference if we don’t have a father with us??!!
Its abit of the impossible question but on but I don’t know how to decide where to go!
The dad is v good and will let me go wherever I like (!) and we will sort out seeing him once we’ve decided.
So the children are 5 and 7 and think they would be ok with moving. But they would miss him too. I think we’d have to start seeing him most weekends to start and then gradually wean off, once we were up and running with a new network.
To be honest, even back home I have a v small network of support and busy hands off parents.
I might be better somewhere half way in between where I grew up and where I am now….
I think a fresh fresh start is perhaps what I would like in terms of school. I think the past year in particular has been stressful and perhaps I’ve not been myself and found pick up and school playground stuff with other parents hard. Losing friends more than quicker than making them – not proud about it but it’s the situation.
It is definitely a shame about the clubs and friends though….
i want to make sure I’m not just running away from difficult situation at school because I’m sure there will be other difficulties round the corner….
