dear all, im new on this circle and am glad to be here....
i have a warm husband and one child: a two and a half year old daughter - lovely, full of zest, pretty extroverted and loves making friends...
we've been married about 3.5 years. In these initial years of marriage, our family's been moving continuously almost since she was born - moving either our home or our jobs or something else...result: we've not been able to form stable friendships as a family and in finding friends for her...
i feel its taking a toll on my little one (and us of course) - as much as my hubby and i spend meaningful and fun times with her, it doesn''t fulfill her ín the way that a friend her size her age does... she seems unenthusiastic about meeting new kids nowadays, seemingly thinking "i wonder how long this friendship will last"
we try to make the best of where we are, call neighbours kids over etc but it s not practical for more than a few times cos the kids 're busy with their school and stuff
my daughter's not started school yet and we plan to move (again!) to the other end of the city in a few weeks and then move after a year in 2011 (AAAaaa!). The move in 2011 will hopefully be into our long-term permanent kinda home... but in the meantime (2011 is so faraway) am looking for help/support/advice on how to build friendships for my family/toddler
Many thanks in advance:)
