We've held off on telling our 10 year-old son until school is out. School ends next Wednesday. We're all are going to London for a week starting next Thursday (the trip was planned long ago, and it's okay that we're going together, we're remaining close and friendly, etc.). We are staying with friends. I think we need to tell our son this weekend as school next week is a bunch of bullshit half-days and he can deal, see his pals, and have time to digest before we go on our trip. I want to tell him before we leave; I am ready to be open and up front about it...to our son, to our frineds in LOndon, and to each other. I do not want to wait until we we get back from London, while my husband does. Advice?
