My partner is moving in in 2 and a half weeks to help me out. We were planning on him moving in in August but I'm sick so he wants to be here for me. It's always just been me and my son. Now it's going to be the three of us, and in December we will be a family of four. How am I supposed to handle the changes? How can I make it easier on all of us?

We've already decided, since I co-sleep with my son, that my partner is moving into the spare room until we are ready to transition Xander to his own bed. I'd like to do that by September. We are also going to have one date night a week just the two of us, one day where he sees friends and I see my friends, and one family day. The rest will be work days.

Anything else I can do? I am really nervous.

Breathe..... it sounds like you have this under control.... jusst breathe... its a lot of changes but it sounds like this is what you and your partner have been wanting... Know that there will be some growing pains involved for everyone... so everyone needs to be understanding of that.... but the main part is to breathe and it will all work out.

A BIG thank you to *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Thanks ! I am starting to think of all the great benefits of having him move in so soon. It's going to be so nice.
