So, we’ve had a huge life event happen.

Michael has accepted a position in Chicago, effective a few days ago.

Yup, that’s a big life change for us.

A few weeks ago, my parents babysat the 3 kids and Michael and I booked a 3 day trip to move him into an apartment there. I came home, alone..

For the Spring, he will work in Chicago and commute to Texas on the weekends. 

I have moved several times in my life

growing up in Switzerland

moving to Lebanon at the vulnerable age of 12

states at 23 on my own

London with Michael for 3 years with a brand new baby

Toronto for a year with 2 little babies

now Dallas

It’s a lot. Not every place was great, some were, others not.. 

We love Texas so it would be sad to go when the time comes. 

Anyway, these are just the first days, and I hope it will get easier over time. It really puts you in the shoes of single parents for a moment and how strong they are to cope with the weight of carrying the children on their own for so much of the time. Not easy.

So, deep breath! I think we can do this, write to me and let me know if you are familiar with this kind of situation and if you have any tips, I would love to hear your suggestions…

Stephany
