I mentioned in a recent post I am making some big changes here. There is lots changing around me but I am trying to be as in control of those elements as I can be. I have just bought a house and whilst I am not very good at things being out of place, the house looks like there has been a tsunami inside. There are boxes half packed everywhere, piles and piles of crap laying around that are yet to have their fate decided. It was starting to do my head in a little, so in the morning I am having a huge bin delivered and I am going to start being strict with what is coming to the new house.
There is a little anxiety buzzing away in the back of my head. We have lived in this house for almost 10 years and this is the only home that my children know. This is also ‘home’ for them, meaning its the place that we lived all together as a family. And now that dynamic has changed so the anxiety is there for all of us.
I sat with the kids tonight and we had a chat about the move. I let them know that they need to be involved in this and in what happens at the new place. I was trying to get them excited and amped up about what is possible at the new house and at the moment they are excited about making their rooms allllll theirs. This will be the first time we will be able to paint rooms whatever colour we choose, or hang pictures on the walls.
I said there were big changes ahead and I think they have taken that to the extreme… I have one kiddo that is BatMan obsessed and apparently were painting one wall entirely black with the bat symbol and the other one wants her room to be galaxy themed. What have I got myself into?
