Any person that has moved either house or country, knows it can be very stressful. While living with my parents we moved, a total of three times. I felt the stress a bit but not as much because my mom is an expert at moving and getting it done in no time.

Every time we would move she would pack everything up, transport us to our new house and in two or three days it would feel like we had been living there for our whole lives, crazy talent to be able to do that with three kids and a husband.

Now, it was my time. My husband and I moved from his loft apartment to a friends house (for a month) and then ended up moving to my parents house, they very kindly gave us a room to stay in. It was tight but hey, no rent so we smiled and kept on going. We ended up living there for two and half years. In that time we had our baby Sergio.

We ended up moving when Sergio turned one. We were both very scared as to how the move would affect him. Plus, we still had workers in the house and I had a new nanny (but that is just another story). Any ways, this is how we did it:

  1. We packed all of Sergio´s things and accommodated his room first
  2. We decided to bring a few things that belonged in his room at my parents house so he would feel the familiarity
  3. We worked as a team to open as many boxes as we could and organize the best way possible.
  4. We agreed that it was going to take time to have it all fully furnished and finished
  5. Ended our days sitting down at our couch, taking it all in and enjoying the moment we had been waiting for.

In the end because we were calm and patient with each other, it was easy on our toddler. We understood this process was short and we always remembered how long it took us to get here. And off course, there was wine involved at the end of the day 😉

Toda persona que se ha mudado ya sea de casa o de país, entiende lo estresante y complicado que puede ser en la familia.

Cuando estaba creciendo nos mudamos alrededor de 3 veces en toda mi vida. Cada mudanza era complicada pero mi mama lo hacia ver tan fácil. Ella lograba que estuviésemos instalados en 2 máximo 3 días. Le quedaba como si hubiésemos estado viviendo en esa casa toda nuestra vida. 

Ahora era mi turno. Nosotros pasamos de vivir mi esposo y yo en su casa de soltero, nos mudamos a la casa de un amigo por un mes para luego quedar en casa de mis padres que muy amablemente nos dieron un cuarto donde terminamos viviendo por 2años y medio. En ese tiempo nació Sergio y terminamos mudándonos cuando él ya tenía 1 año.

Al final si teníamos mucho miedo por que no sabíamos como se iba a adaptar al cambio así que hicimos lo siguiente:

  1. Mudamos todas sus cosas y se las acomodamos lo mejor posible.
  2. Trajimos par de cosas del que era su cuarto donde mis padres para que no notara tanto el cambio
  3. Trabajamos como equipo para abrir todas las cajas y acomodarlas lo mejor posible
  4. Estábamos claros que nos iba a tomar tiempo amoblar y terminar la casa
  5. Terminábamos nuestros dias sentados en el sofa disfrutando del momento y dando gracias de lo que con tanto esfuerzo nos había tomado.

Al final todo funcionó bien por que tuvimos paciencia el uno con el otro, eso ayudó también a que Sergio no sintiera el estrés del momento y fue fácil para el también. Sabíamos que el proceso de la mudanza no iba a ser para siempre y obvio terminábamos algunos de nuestros días con una buena copa de vino 😉
