I just want to transport all my family here!
    No don't feel guilty at all. We visit family every 3mths and often stay for 3 or 4 weeks. I figure if the family feel they are missing out on the kids they can come visit. We visit them often enough.

    I'm similar in that my dad died when I was little, then my brother moved to a different state 13 years ago, and then we moved regional 3 years ago, so we are 3.5 hours from my mum who is on her own in Sydney. DH is from O/S, so my youngest has never met is nanny and the eldest 3 were babies last time we saw her. We also only see my brother, niece and nephew once a year because they Are so far away. I don't feel guilty about it, but I do wish we were all closer, does that make sense?
