Let it Be

This morning while I was getting KiKi dressed for school this is the conversation we had.

Me- Daddy is leaving again for a while. Don't worry he will be back before Christmas.
KiKi- Is he going to school?
Me- Yep. He'll be in Germany for school! (tries to sound excited)
KiKi- Will his friends be there?
Me- Yep. He will have some of his friends there.
KiKi- Alright.

Needless to say the four year old was a little more understanding when told that The Man will be leaving again for work purposes. I on the other hand threw a tantrum a two year old would have been proud to claim. Usually I am the picture of a stoic military wife, on Thursday when I found out we had four days to alter our plans for the holiday season (he won't be here for Thanksgiving) I lost the plot. Don't worry. It only took me 45 minutes to gather myself and put back on my stoic face. What else can I do? I love my husband.

Bless you: I grew up an Army Brat and cannot remember dad going away for chunks of time, though I know he did. Mum must have done a fabulous job in his absence, as will you. It must be so harder to be without your husband for so long though.

I would make a lousy military spouse. I'd be in constant hissy fit mode.

I love the new look.
I hope time goes quickly for you and your little ones.

I'm impressed it only took you 45 minutes to get it together. Usually takes me a bit longer. I hope the time goes quickly and smoothly for you all.

Only one way that being a military family is HARD! There are lots more. I admire your flexibility and steadfastness!

I can't say it enough: I so appreciate your husband's service. But the internet has taught me to also appreciate the sacrifices you and your family make for us.

Thank you.
