I am a full time working mom with a 20 month old and a full time working husband. We live in Baltimore currently. My husband works from home and is able to be in the office in 20 minutes if needed. I commute to work M-F. We moved here for my husband's job. I have been interested in moving back home (Illinois side of St. Louis). Both my husband and my family live within 2 hours of the St. Louis area in Illinois. I don't speak to mother for multiple reasons (too many to list here), but I am in contact with all of my mother's family. They all live in the area even my mother. My husband family all live in the area as well. I want to move back because my realationship with my inlaws has blossomed into something awesome since my mom decided to leave my life. My husband is for moving back but he wants what is only best for our son. We mainly communicate with my family by phone/email/Facebook and we communicate with my husband's family via email/phone/Facebook/Skype. I miss both family dearly. I see the benefits of staying here in Baltimore. I also can see the benefits of moving to the St. Louis area. My husband and I have lived away from home for 10 years or more now. Our son was born in Baltimore. My husband and I are concerned about how to "reintroduce ourselves" to the demands of the family. We both want whats best for our son, but I have a personal want to move back for family support. Any advice? Should we move back? Is it the best choice for our son?
