The Move Issue

I think I may have figured out Josey's problem with moving. We forgot to mention to him that we're not just leaving everything behind and moving into another house with different stuff. I noticed that when we talked about moving he would grab at something - his bed, the chair, a stuffed animal - so I finally clued in that he was scared of losing all his stuff. Now that I reassured him that he can bring anything he wants (within reason - he informed me that he wanted to bring the basement and that we would have to dig it out) he seems happier and says "Yay! We got the house!" a lot. Today he's been carrying around a printout of the house listing, so maybe that's a good sign.
