my husband is also missing out on our children's lives. he was a over the road trucker before he went to the oilfields and at that time we had our son and i was pregnant and he missed all the doctor appointments and the ultrasound. now i feel like he is missing the best part of our kids. our three year old is potty training and he will be starting preschool soon and my husband will miss his first day of school. my daughter who is 1 now he has missed her first step and her first word. i know it is hard on him but every time the kids do something i miss him even more.

and the hole going to bed at night is impossible sometimes because i just lay there thinking about everything. and when he is home i can just go right to sleep so needles to say i have not had a good nights sleep in 3 weeks. thanks for letting me know that i am not along when it comes to this stuff. it really helps to have someone who gets it.
