I have two kids and babysit two other kids during the day. My husband and the kids' mother are deployed. They've been coming here for a couple of months but this morning is the first time dealing with the little girl. She's suuuuper sad today, almost depressed. She just wants to sit on the couch and cry. Everything makes her cry, sometimes even nothing and she's only been here for an hour! Her dad said she was like this last night andwouldn't eat anything for him, and nothing for me this morning. I'm at a loss except lettting her just sit on my lap and cry in my neck (which she's doing right now). She keeps saying she misses her mommy and we've always talked about her mommy and how she'll come home, etc. I know she's 3 and doesn't exactly understand the concept of a deployment. Any advice? I feel so bad for this little girl.
