This is a question for all of you who are lucky to be there already. How stressful was it saying goodbye to parents? Both my hubby's parents and my mum (she's been a widow for 17 years) are distraught. You'd think we were dying the way they are acting and I feel so selfish because I'm really not too bothered about leaving anyone. Of course I'll miss my Mum but it's kind of putting a dampner on this great big adventure my family are about to have. My husband leaves on Saturday and I'm going to be here for three months with my kids before I go. Now I'm getting to see how upset everyone is because he's going and I'm (them too) going to have to go through it all again in July I dont know how I'll cope. I'm a bit apprehensive at having to fly on my own with two kids, plus ship the dog out before I go but I don't think my family are going to appreciate that, their world is going to end when I leave with the kids, or so you'd think. How did you cope with leaving family.
Do you think I sound selfish?
