Hi, my name is Arlene Richardson(22). My husband recently joined the Army (MOS Infantry). He is leaving tomorrow for bootcamp and will be gone for about 4-5 months. I have 2 young ones at home as well. My daughter Sky who is turning 2 and my son Brandon Jr. who is going on 4.
It's starting to hit me now that I'm gonna be doing this without him now, for a while at least. And truthfully I'm a little worried. My son doesn't really get the idea that daddy is leaving and I'm afraid of how he is going to take it after a while. I'm also a little worried about keeping order since I'm going back to work part-time.
I'm excited because this is going to be a brand new start for us. It's just the time it takes to get there is what I'm worried about.
