- Talk to your children before the move and explain what is happening — why you are moving and where you will be going. Be straightforward and answer all their questions.
- From sadness to excitement, your children will have emotions associated with the move. These feelings are normal; so let your children know that it’s okay to express them.
- If possible, visit your new home well in advance of the move. It helps a child feel much less apprehensive if they have a picture in their mind of where they are moving. Be sure to highlight some of the nice things about the area you are moving to, such as a great playground or beautiful lake.
- When you arrive at your new home, give your children plenty of say in how they decorate their new rooms. This will help them to feel like they have control over their environment and they won’t feel so lost.
As I already mentioned above, the bed rest is still very prevalent in our lives right now and I am honestly going stir crazy staying put 24/7. Some good news is that I am now 31 weeks pregnant and only have 6 more to go to have a safe delivery. I am getting so excited for baby to arrive and the curlies are as well. The gender war has gotten stronger and even daddy and I have joined in with either team boy or team girl. It is so sweet to know baby Tafoya will be entering such a loving and fun family.
In just a matter of weeks the Lord provided a home, a van, and tons of loving people to come along side of me during my time of bed rest. I can honestly say that there is no better advice in life than to “trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will make straight your paths.” -Proverbs 3:5,6
