What do you do for him? For the kids? Anything special for you?
My hubby just left for three months on his sub. I sent him with cards for Halloween and Thanksgiving (they didn't have Christmas or New Years cards yet, so those will go when we get a mail drop) plus random I miss you cards, congrats for halfway night, etc.
We all made pillowcases right before he left. He has a dinosaur pillowcase from when he was a kid, and our three year old daughter loves it, so they made two together, one for each of them. I made a hand print one for me.
I recorded my hubby reading a few stories for our daughter, so she can still have her bedtime story from him. She has a build a bear that is dressed like a sailor and has his voice in it. She also has a daddy doll.
I think we're going to make a paper chain. I did it during his workup and just added links while she was sleeping when they extended.
So what do you do?
I am not a military mom but I have to say that you have some really awesome ideas. I can't imagine what it would be like to be away from your husband for that amount of time! I have to say thank you for sharing him with the rest of the county so he can help make sure that all of us are safe.
