Quoting Mama MacGyver*:" What parts of parenting have you had to do while your SO was deployed? Pregnancy? Birth? Infancy? Toddlerhood? ... [snip!] ... what part of parenting my DH might miss again, and what another child will miss out on, as well as the child we already have.."
he missed my pregnancy, the birth, and her first year of living. he met her twice once at 2 months and another at 8 months before he left. and she finally had him again at 15 months. the baby years are easy well the again i had my mom and sister helping me out. Now that i live in a whole new state by my self with no support but him, its pretty hard.
