Yesterday was my son’s 9th birthday party. We had it a few weeks early so he could enjoy it with his friends since we’ll be in Seattle on his actual birthday. He had a blast!! We don’t normally spend as much as we did yesterday on a birthday party but he’d been wanting to go there for years so we finally bit the bullet and did it. Since the move is next week I’m so glad we opted to pay for everything. I’m WAY to stressed to be planning and baking.
But i’m starting to feel the sadness for my kiddo. This is the first year he’s made “real” friends! He’s already got friends that are all teary that he’s leaving and it’s not even happened yet. We feel so bad for him yet we know this is the best thing to do for our family.
I know we’ll all look back and know we made the right decision but it’s so hard to leave a life you’ve known for 33 years..
