The Big Move–Transitioning to a New Home

movingAs many of you’ve probably heard, most of our company is moving to Atlanta in the next few months. I will be making the big move to Atlanta this June. This is a particularly big move for me since I was born & raised in this area & have always been about 1 hour away from my family. My daughter, PP, was born in the house that we live in now so we will be leaving behind her first home as well.

My husband & I have been prepping PP for the big move by showing her pictures online, videotaping our new house to show her, and “enticing” her with pictures of parks, pools, and playgrounds. I have to say, she is so excited to move to “Alanna” as she calls it.

PP doesn’t realize that to move to Atlanta means leaving behind all of her friends and family. I think she thinks we are moving down the street to a bigger house complete with a community pool & playground. What is going to be hardest for her is not being able to go to Grandmom’s house at a moment’s notice or have her friends over to the house.

Luckily, I have just received a web cam so we can visually stay in touch with friends and family that way (obviously it won’t be the same but it is a little better than phone only). We also plan on making little videos of PP & sending them to family/friends.

I think PP will be the easiest to transition to our new home…My parents, on the other hand, are a different story….. Any tips on transitioning little ones during a move would be greatly appreciated! (and not just by me!)
