Is it hard for anyone else and how do you woman do it

Our child is 9 months and has only known daddy for 1 month. First crawl, first giggle, first alot he is going to miss. Does anyone else understand? Our little boy is going to be walking soon and he's going to miss it. That makes me feel so alone and so sad. How do we through it. He's in Iraq, how does he get through it.

  • You just do it! My huband missed our son's first words, crawling, sitting, first standing due to being in Iraq. Sadly, it is just part of what we as wives sign up for! Take pictures, keep in contact and let him know what all is happening, use Skype so he can see, video tape. Use whatever recources you have available! Good Luck and know you are not alone :)

  • Most men don't get emotional about little things like that like mothers do.

  • Pictures and videos!!! Get a good camera and take tons and tons of pics and videos! I'm sure he'll appreciate it when he can see them not to mention you will when he's older!
