Before we left Anderson, we made sure to spend as much time as we could doing some of our favorite things. We visited tons of parks, ate at our favorite restaurants, went on lots of runs, and made sure that BG had plenty of time to say good-bye to her little best bud.
I put a lot of time and energy into moving so I wouldn't have to think about leaving. For BG's part. Because I knew this was going to be a change that would really rock her world and I was not looking forward to it at all.
The day we left town, Stacy and Zo came by to say goodbye. BG and I had picked out a little bracelet for her to give Zo so that the two of them would have a "bff" bracelet.
So BG and I sat in my front yard while Stace loaded up Zo who was hysterically yelling "ELLA!!! Come with me!!!" and my little one sobbed in my arms and did every monkey move she could to get down and get in the car. It was awful.
BG and I watched til they were gone and until the two of us couldn't even see through our tears anymore. We talked about how we were moving again, but BG couldn't doing anything but whimper "Zo, Zo no go" over and over again.
