Soooo..my husband shipped out early this morning and I'm just so sad this time. It never gets easier each time he leaves but this time it's way different. Jonah is here now and he is going to miss his poppa. Our whole routine has to change and I have ever done a deployment with a LO in the picture. I'm not walking around the house being depressed..I have never done that but my heart just aches extra this time around I hate the "empty" feeling the house has. It always feels like this and I get over it but it's the first day and I just want to CRY. Just a vent because I needed to lol.

Awww it's always hard every single time they leave, and even harder with the kids! The first week is always the worst for me. I hope this time goes by fast for you!

Awe, I can only imagine how you feel. That would be so hard, especially with a little one involved. I hope this time passes by quickly for y'all! How long is he deployed for?

I am sure having Jonah makes it so much harder because he knows daddy and will miss him like crazy to! You need to do some walks, mommy groups, take some awesome pictures for daddy, do some outings with the older kids....keep your mind busy. That way each day will go by so faster!!

Vent all you want we are here for you!! I know its not easy... but you are one strong woman and will balance out for mommy and daddy while daddy is away!!!

I don't know how you military spouses do it. I really don't.

I hope the time goes by quickly!

I was just thinking about this earlier today and wondering if he was still home. I'm here any time if you want to vent; deployments are tough. Prayers that time will go quickly and that he will be home safely (and that you are able to talk/email/Skype a lot!).

I joined 2 mommy groups, I have my friends who's hubby's deployed as well, and plan on taking sooooo many pictures! I plan to keep busy just as I always do. Tomorrow is coffee with the other wives, Saturday pool party at my friends house, possibly Palm Springs the following weekend...yeah I'm a busy bee lol.
Thank you for your kind words

Oh Erin. so sorry. I'll keep him in my thoughts for a safe return. I hope the time goes by quickly. I can imagine the sadness you must feel for Jonah. I bet it was so hard for your husband to leave.
I'm glad your mom will come over for a bit, I bet that will help fill the empty house.

I can't even imagine what you are going through. You military wives never cease to amaze me. I will keep you in my constant prayers that the time flies by and he is back before you know it!

I'm so sorry! We are here for you!! I hope this deployment goes by quickly. Do you know how long he is supposed to be gone? My dad was active duty Navy when I was a toddler, and was gone a good portion of my 0-3 years. My hat goes off to all the military mama's.

The only thing I can compare the way I feel the first few days he is gone is a broken heart but x100. But I know by next week I'll be feeing much better when does your husband go to boot camp...is it still happening?
