Well, as I've said many times before, my SO had to take a job out of state about 2 years ago and I've only been able to see him every several months for a week or so at a time. This time he was gone for 6 months and he was home for 2 whole months.
Well, he left today...and I bawled like a baby...and I didn't see that coming. He will not be here for the birth in a couple weeks...and then the real kicker was our daughter practically chased him out the door asking for more hugs and kisses asking "Where you going daddy?" "You have to go daddy?".
God, I'm crying again. It is the first time in her little life I think she understood that it was going to be a long time before he would be home again and I don't know how to make it easier for her. I know a lot of moms, particularly military (although that isn't our situation) have been through this and I need advice.

If he had to take a job in another state couldn't you just relocate? (After the baby) Would that seem like a better solution? Just keep talking to your daughter and just let her know what daddy is doing.
