if you were seriously hurt/sick/injured right now this moment ...

who'd take the kids as the ambulance drove off with you?
how would your absence (let's say 15 days?) effect your family?

  • My MIL would until hubby gets home from work. We are a very close family. If I went away for 15 days (and I have) my house would not get cleaned AT ALL! Hubby and son would eat fast food every night, cause I normally make dinner everynight. Son would probably not get a bath unless MIL did it for hubby. Men really are useless the majority of the time.

  • for me i would call my FRG and someone from the post would come look after my kids. as for the 15 day either A) a team of Army Wives would come in and help or B) they would send my husband home from afghanistan depending on the severity of the injury.... and it would greatly effect my family. my husband depends on talking to me to help him while hes deployed and i depend on him. my kids also depend on me so this would great disrupt our house hold UNLESS daddy was home..even then there would be some issues.

  • i have often wondered that....i have no idea. especially if it was an emergency and i was unconcious or something like that. i don't know who would take them until husband got there from work. if i was gone for 15 days i'm sure we would work something out by then.....find someone to come and stay with the kids until i get back.

  • my So would take care of our DD and I would have to say that He would do a pretty good job and if he needed some help we have very close friends who would help fill in the gaps for him.
