ok so recentlymy oldest has been having issues with this deploy. we already told her daddy was coming home AFTER her birthday to try and give her a timeline she could understand. well yesturday she broke down and started bawling her eyes out and begging daddy to come home for her birthday..i asked ALOT of people what they would do via FB and they ALL said to not celebrate her birthday on her birthday since she doesnt know any better and to celebrate it when he gets home and "pretend" like its her birthday...
good idea? or bad idea?
we already have my june bugs birthday to celebrate in june and daddys due home in may so we would be having two parties back to back. not to mention daddys coming home party...
child is turning 5 btw... actual birthday is in march.

Buy a calendar and mark what month he is suppose to be home. Do not mark a day, because they never come home the day they say. My DH was in Iraq, I know. Let her keep track of when he comes home like that.
