I have a 18 month old son and my husband is getting ready to go on deployment for about 8 months. When my husband leaves my son will be 2. How do you let them know that there dad will be home soon and that he didnt just abandon him? This will also be my first deployment ever and i am kinda stressing out because I will be dealing with myself and deployment plus a 2 year old trying to tell him that his daddy just left for a little while. My fear is that my son wont remember him. Plus I am moving back home so I can havve help with my son while I am in school. How do I prepare myself and son for deployment? How do I talk to him about it?
