      I recently took a VP position in Arizona (relocated from Florida) with 3 children, I have yet to process that stress!! I gave my oldest daughter the option to graduate in Florida while living with my mother and this is the hardest thing I ever had to do (I can barely breathe). I am holding the things together because I have a 13 and 10 year old, but any advice on how to get through this would be greatly appreciated.  

      Happy Monday everyone!

        • First of all, good for you!!!!

          I really have no good advice other than to say you just have to take it one day at a time.

          I know an awful lot of people who’ve been in the same situation, letting their highschool child stay behind with friends or relatives to finish school.  It’s hard, but you have to think of the positives about the situation.

        • Congratulations and good luck! That is a stressful situation.  

          I think offering your daughter that option is a very good idea. I know it will be hard on both of you, but it will give her that stability to graduate with her friends and a school she knows, while also with someone you trust - your mom! That is if you feel comfortable with that. I know there are all sorts of relationships we have with our mothers. worried

          Plus, time flies so fast. With holiday visits, the year will fly by and she will be a high school graduate ready for bigger and better things before any of you know it!

          In addition, you have two other kids and a new job and a big move to think about. I think it will be good for both of you to have that stress taken away.

          This is all my opinion as an outsider. I know it is hard, but it sounds like a great option for both of you. Good luck!

        • Thank you for the congrats and the words of confidence, I honestly appreciate it. Yes, it helps that she can be with my mother. Regardless, of our relationship she loves her grand-children estatic
          I honestly think that time will go faster once my other two start school and we all become a little more social.
          Thanks again for being awesome!
