I’ve had the perfect picture in mind for Silent Sunday this week but I couldn’t post it without telling you what it means to me and how hard it has been for me this week!
|My Three Gorgeous Kiddos :O)|
Those of you who follow me on twitter will know that Lero my eldest (14) moved to live with his Dad on Monday 5th September (my Birthday) – This photo was taken about an hour before he left! He is such a good boy & loves Boo & Bugs to pieces! He is so good with them and they miss him dearly!! Not half as much as I do though 🙁
Alot of you have asked why he moved and I have tried to explain it on Twitter but it is so hard to say in 140 characters!! So I will try and explain…
We used to live very close to Lero’s Dad but when we had Boo we decided we needed to move closer to James’ work 50 miles away as it was taking it’s toll on our family life. So we moved and we have been here for over 4 years now and we are ALL very happy here – including Lero, he settled really well into his new school and made tons of friends!!
James got made redundant in Dec 09 and managed to get himself a job 55 miles away!!! We thought another move may be on the cards but we thought we would try and see how it would go with James’ commuting. So since Jan 10 James has been commuting 1.5-3hrs each way, each day! He would continue but with the fuel prices rising it is really stretching us financially so we decided that we must put our house on the market and move as soon as we can before we get into trouble!
Obviously this was a really hard decision to make especially as I was aware that Lero didn’t want to move to a new area and start a new school all over again. So after a lot of thought he/we decided that he would like to go and live with his Dad so he could go to school there – where he knows friends from when he went to school there previously! He wanted to wait until we sold the house to move – but I said no he must move at the start of this school year so he is there in his new school for his final 2 years. I didn’t want his schooling being disrupted during year 10 & 11. (That was really hard for me to do as I wanted to keep him with me as long as i possibly could!)
SO that’s what happened he moved on the 5th September and started school on the 7th – thankfully he is loving his new school and seems to be settling really well!!! He’s a good boy and I just wish him so much happiness and success!! I love him dearly!! I really feel like I have failed him and let him down and that i’m a terrible Mother! I expect him to come downstairs every morning and just be his bright cheery self and I even cry when I walk past his school! I’m sure this will all pass but it’s so HARD – I hate being without one of my babies!!!
Now we are stuck here waiting for someone to buy the house… with a big heavy heart 🙁
