Coming Home Soon

My oldest getting his Tiger Cub badge.


My hubby has been gone for two weeks. I miss him. My kids really miss him. My four year old came running downstairs this morning shouting "I hear Daddy!" Not today honey. Not tomorrow either. Maybe the next day. Actually, it may be the day after that or that . . . .

"When is Daddy coming home?" "Is that Daddy!?!?" "Can we call Daddy?" "I'm going to make Daddy a picture".

My kids want me to wrestle with them like Daddy does. So I give it a try and about break my neck and back in the process. "You didn't do it right Mom". No joke . . .

My middle child wants me to play "lightsavers" with him and be the "really mean guy from Star Wars". "That's the wrong way Mom! Do it like Daddy does!" I can't, no matter how hard I try.

I had the flu this week. Bless his heart. My seven year old did his best, but no one can take care of me like my hubby.

This is two weeks. What will I do this fall, when it's six months to a year? I can't imagine being a family without him for so long.

I know how much I gripe when my hubby is gone for just a week on business. I'm sorry you are having to go through this. I wish we lived nearby so I could help you out - or at least provide some adult company and conversation!
