My husband and I have been talking about relocating our family. Right now my parents and mother in law all live in the same state we do. My husband has a possible awesome job opportunity in another state where I can be at home with my boys. I told my parents about the interview and they are really upset with me, they are making me feel like I am being selfish for wanting to move away but there aren't too many good job opportunities where we currently live either. Anyone have any input on the situation?
** I guess I should let everyone know that I do get to stay at home right now with my boys but I run a full time daycare with five other children. I really want to be able to do more with my boys. Where the job opportunity is we will still have some family as well (aunts, uncles, lots of cousins), just not our parents.
I will let you all know what happens.
***UPDATE*** Thank you so much to everyone who gave their input on our situation. It has made me feel a lot better about our decision. Even though the company liked my husband and want to get him hired on, they decided to promote from within. I know that God has a plan for us and he has some good possible leads with other companies. As for my parents, they have come around and one of the sates that we are looking at they are willing to relocate (just as many of you said). Thanks again everyone, reading all the posts made me feel good about our decision!
