Now that I am a mom, I am giving my daughter the exact opposite life. She has already lived in 2 different apartments and we will move to a new one in the spring. When I picked a preschool for her I found one that went up until the 8th grade so she wouldn’t have to deal with change. I didn’t want my precious baby to have to deal with evil change. But now it looks like she will be going to a different school for pre-K.
Even though I wanted change as a kid I wasn’t good with it because I never experienced it. I led a very cushiony and sheltered life because everything as the same.
I am so stressed out with how Amelia will do with the change this spring. She is already said she will miss our apartment and wants to bring the doors and windows with us. A childhood were you move a lot is foreign to me… even though as a child I thought it would be so cool to move.
The only thing that makes me feel better is the hope that because of all this Amelia will grow up to be very good with change.
Also, I know that whatever I do my daughter will think her life is boring and want the opposite because the only thing that doesn’t change is kids thinking their parents are weird and wrong.
