I was so excited to be offered the opportunity to review the children’s book “Ava’s Adventures Abroad: Abu Dhabi.” Goldilocks doesn’t really have any books about kids who travel the world like she does so I was excited to read this book to her.
The last three months have been a whirlwind as we visited family, prepared to move across the world and also found out we were pregnant just a week before Goldilocks’ first birthday party! The first 13 weeks of my pregnancy went by so quickly I felt like it was just a blur. I didn’t even get much time to research what our pregnancy would look like here in Berlin. That’s why I’m so glad I came across the book I’m reviewing today, “Knocked Up Abroad.”
We’re going to be moving around a lot as our children grow up. It’s just part of the job in the Foreign Service. I moved around quite a bit as a military brat. It taught me resilience and adaptability. I met friends from all over the country and the world during my moves to different bases. Papa Bear and I wanted the same things for our children but we know it won’t always be easy. We want to help make their transitions to different countries as smooth as possible, which is why I’m so glad I found out about the “Kids on the Move” workbook from afterschoolplans.com.
