Quoting Stefan Salvatore:" My husband is deploying very soon and I am starting to stress out right now. My daughter is the biggest ... [snip!] ... is the biggest daddys girl and I know she is going to lose it when he is gone... Ugh this is going to be a long year. "
yeah we went through that too
how old is your daughter. my oldest daughter was 2 when her daddy deployed last, and she was 3 when he came home. it took a few days for her to wrap her head around the idea that he was home now, and not just a face on a computer screen. she's still a daddy's girl, but since she's growing so is her attitude and things are changing. while he was gone we looked at pictures of them constantly and she got to talk to him on the phone. hope you can find a way for them to stay connected.
