Been there done that. My husband lived in another state for 3 months (from April-July) this year. I had 4 kids (10, 8 1/2, 7 1/2 and 4) and was pregnant (in my 3rd trimester--baby was born in July). I also didn't have a car so everywhere we went we walked or took the bus. It was crazy and I was constantly exhausted and stressed out.
The kids understood why Daddy wasn't there. He was working and were all going to move after the baby came. They were more upset about them moving away from their friends than because Daddy was gone. He worked so much anyway that they barely saw him.
