I live in Nunspeet, a small town in the middle of Holland. This blog is about my life here, and my visits to other towns and cities. A bit of tourism, a bit of history, a bit of culture and a bit of my life.

I posted this question on my boarding school facebook group and it has elicited a lot of discussion.
I'm curious to hear your opinions, so I'm reposting the question here. I would love to read your reactions in the comments!
just waved goodbye to my daughter, who is going to India for two
months. The reactions from those around me who aren't MK's or TCK's are
all about wishing me good luck, and wondering won't I miss her a lot,
and aren't you worried, wishing me strength for the time she's gone.
However much I appreciate the good wishes, they don't resonate with me. I
think it's because I'm still so used to saying goodbyes, and being in
touch with people in other countries, that I don't have that big of a
sense of loss. I know she's going somewhere safe, that she's in good
company, that she's doing something she likes and that she's confident
and capable. So, my question is, have I become hard hearted because of
growing up as an MK, or do you guys share the same feeling? (or am i
just not that sentimental?)
