Mommy is very stressed out right now because we are moving to a house not too far from our hosue now. But she is really nervous because she is afraid I will wander off and try to amke it back to our old house since it is near by. She is also really nervous because I am just a 'tiny little kitten.' I haven't lived with mommy very long, only 10 weeks, but accordign to mommy the best 10 weeks of her life. She loves me very much, do you have any tips for our move.

You need to stay inside for at least 2 weeks. In fact, if your mom can keep you in all the time, it would be much safer for you in the long run. Since you are only 3 months old, you are not fully vaccinated, so at the very least I'd rec. mom keep you inside until you are at least 4 months old, have had your kitten vaccine series and your rabies vaccine.
Make sure to have a collar and tags on. Make sure the information is current. You may want to consider getting a microchip (many shelters do this pretty low cost). During the move make sure you get locked up in a room w/ food/water and litterbox until all furniture and boxes are out of the house. Then when you get to the new house, be sure to stay in an room where there will not be a,bunch of activity until the moving is over. Good Luck/. I know how stressful moving can be (we just did it recently, but ours was a 2 day trip).
