It is getting really close to the time that my husband leaves for training.. and I'll only get to see him for 6 days for the holidays before he is shipped overseas. I'm having a really hard time dealing with the fact he is going. Does anyone know of anything that will make it so it's not so hard on me? The longest I've ever been away from him while we have been together is 2 weeks for his AT and that was a few years ago.. How do I explain to my son that daddy is going to be leaving? Do I just let it happen and then try to explain why he is gone or tell him before hand that daddy is leaving and won't be back for awhile? If so what do I say? I'm feeling completely lost right now. My husband only has 2 days left of work after tonight and then he is done so it seems just that much more real. Definitely glad that he is gonna have some time off before he leaves tho! I think my daughter is too young to understand that he is leaving but my son is almost 3 and knows that daddy comes home every night after work.. So any advice would be excellent!
