We have talked to him a lot about daddy's business trip. Although he doesn't comprehend time he knows daddy will be away for awhile. It just sucks. There is this void there that I can't fill. He doesn't want to play, "Hulk and Spida (Spider-man)" with me or ride my back around and play swords like he does with J. I know as time goes on things will get easier, but for now things are raw and they hurt. There will be probably a million more questions of when is daddy going to be back and a lot more tears shed, but I know we can do this - it is just a matter of picking myself back up and being strong for both of us. For now though it just feels like life can be so unfair to military children.
When they say children serve too I totally get it now.
