Quoting sassy chef:" Personally, I thought it was pretty easy to have a baby without him there. Sure, it sucked....but it ... [snip!] ... He came home to meet her at 5 months. I just kind of feel like that is life sometimes, and you have to roll with the punches. "
All of this. I agree 100%. I had my son without my husband. He was actually in a different city, training for his upcoming deployment so he didn't make it to Schwetzingen in time. He deployed when Isaiah was 2.5 weeks old. It sucked, for sure but like you said, that comes with being a military wife. I am not the one to sit around and pout because my husband is gone. I had my days but I kept on truckin'. Being sad is not going to bring him home or keep him home.
