Moving out on my own, that is! DD & I have been living at my parents' house since May 2011, and I am finally making that leap to getting my own place! Such a mix of emotions, mostly excitement, and a little fear. I'm about to jump head first into true "single mom" life. Any tips, suggestions, words of encouragement?
It is very freeing. I remember moving out of my parents house with my LO and I was scared to death. There are really no words of advice. Expect stuff to go wrong and don't freak out when they do. Your LO will probably be upset they yous guys no longer live with grandma and grandpa. But other than that good luck!
I don't have any tips, because my kids & I are living with my parents right now. We moved in back in August when I filed for divorce, & will probably be here at least another year so I can pay off medical bills & save some more money.
Thanks! I am really excited because this will truly be a fresh start from scratch! I lost all of my furniture and most of my belongings to my ex- so I have a LOT of shopping and decorating to do! I know DD is going to miss seeing her Papa and Grandma everyday, but I will finally be able to start parenting the way *I* want to. For some reason, I keep worrying about the first time she gets sick in the new place- I don't usually have much help from my parents during the night anyways, but it's always nice to have the extra support to keep me from freaking out!
