( This is kind of long) So my kids changed school this year and this hardest thing was leaving her BFF and that was the one thing that stopped me changing them sooner. She has lots of friends but this was her very best friend. Her friends family and ours have never been extra close but the girls have play dates occasionally and any we would call or text as needed with school or whatever and have great chats when we had the time. It has never crossed to dinners or anything yet- we did go there for a BBQ once but due to reno's ( that have taken forever) I have yet to return the favour but they are very chilled out and would not take offense I'm sure ( and I plan on asking them soon). Anyway - when I told this Mum we were leaving she didn't seem to think anything of the fact the girls would be separated and made a comment of them being BFF forever regardless of schools. Since school started I have tried to arrange a play date ( they had one each in the holidays) and said DD is really missing her but she said they were busy until the end of the month with some events they are involved in. I have no doubt this is true, and both her and her hubby work full-time and are very busy however I kind of feel sad for DD that her BFF mum is not really making any effort to maintain the girls friendship? She has made no acknowledgement of the fact the girls no longer see each other , but have been BFF since they were 3y old ( now 8 and almost 8). Anyway - I am known to be overly sensitive and I am not sure if I am in this case or not. I was so heartbroken about splitting them up and really want the friendship to continue but I am not sure if I am overthinking it. I just feel so sad for DD who really wants to see her best friend.
