My husband is leaving for Iraq for a year and half. I need advice on how to get my kids through it. We have a 4 year old and a 2 month old. Our 4 year old is taking it real hard. Just want to know what I can do to make it easier?

Have him read onto video and play it ea/day... My hubby and I printed on Photo paper 60 pics of him (from childhood to present day) and 60 of the kids and I. Each week we pin up a new pic on the board and laugh and talk about it. Especially his childhood ones. :oP When we talk to him on the phone it gives my kids' something to talk and takes away a little (just a little) of the missing-hurt. I bought a year pass to the zoo. It is reciprocal to other zoos that we happen to be travelling to this summer and holiday's. So, it will again, be something consistent to look forward to. Also, my kids and I made a 6"x6" scrapbook that has 15 pages empty in the back.We take pictures, and then are making a page for each month and sending it to him. My kids are having a blast as every day they want to take a picture and show daddy a lost tooth, new dress, swimming without floaties, etc... Good Luck and Bless You and your family.
