hey. we are nearing the end of our first deployment. i am so excited for my man to be back home. i cant wait for him to get to know our son again, (as he is 18 months, and "dads" been gone since he was 10 months), and just to have him home where i know he is safe and sound. when we first talked about him going back, he said that he didnt know for sure, but he didnt think he would for a while. he calls us every weekend, and this weekend when we spoke, he mentioned going back again. the difference this time, is that it sounds like he wants to go back right away. his sister is getting married this summer, and if he goes back he will miss the wedding. we were also planning on having more children soon, and him going back will delay that as well. i already went through one pregnancy alone, and i really want to be able to share the next one with someone. how do i tell him i want him to stay home longer without getting into a fight about it, or frustrating him? i dont want him to feel he has to stay here, but i really want him to stay.
