The kids don't really understand why I am moving into my apartment, and why I'm not living here. So this morning while we were getting Little Ann ready for Girl Scout Day Camp (which she is loving) we talked about it. I think it would be easier for them if they had someone to replace me so we could say "you are going to have so much fun with (insert name here)! I heard she is planning so many fun adventures for you!!" But unfortunately, they are still hunting.. So it comes down to trying to tell an 8 year old, and 4 year old that I am just moving to a new apartment and starting at a new job.. I have told them that my apartment is close, and that we will go there so that they can see it sometime this week, and I will come and play with them whenever G & S need me to (so long as I don't have anything else going on)... But when it is all said and done, it is simply sad that after a little more than two years of seeing them every single day, and taking care of them for 11+ hours Monday through Friday, I am done. Although I am not crying yet, and this is going to be a very exciting new chapter in my life, I will be crying on Friday, and I will probably show up on Sunday before they leave to board their plane with S to visit their Grandpa, and on Monday (my official last day) when it will be just G and myself with Little Baby... It is going to be sad.
It has been a pretty good two years, with some fabulous adventures, fun, happiness and love, as well as some hardships too (after all they are kids!)... but I am very glad to have had this experience, and it will be sad at our house at the end of the week.
Here's to one last week filled with little laughs, little hugs, and lots of fun!
Happy Munchkin Monday :)
