I know I left you hanging the other day about why this week is amazing …
Our family is together again! Chris has been gone playing Army a majority of the summer and it’s been challenging to say the least. While I was fortunate enough to have both my mom and his mom helping me at different times there were still periods of time where me and the girls were on our own. We had our own routine and things functioned fine but there was a huge piece of our hearts missing.
This is one aspect of being a military wife that doesn’t get easier, especially now that we have children. When Chris was deployed it was hard for me but I was just fine. I am a fairly independent woman. I don’t NEED Chris … life is just better when he is in it. Having little girls though that ADORE their father is another thing. Explaining to tiny humans why daddy isn’t here was difficult because they didn’t quite understand. Chris was exceptional both periods of time he was gone and Facetimed when he could but things just weren’t the same.
So another crazy summer is behind us and this will :hopefully: be his last long trip in this unit since we should be moving in the spring. Juggling these missions of his, PA school, and two crazy kids isn’t for the faint of h
