Is it terrible that part of me almost wishes he wouldn't visit?

my husband is a wonderful man and a great dad...he is also a military dad. right now he is gone trianing for a new job within the military. He has been gone since april and will be gone until next june... he has visited twice once last month and then this weekend. we miss him when he's gone terribly and we are trilled when he comes to visit but it is so hard to say goodbye again when he has to go.I can handle it but it hurts the kids so much...I hate to see them missing their daddy so much.part of me thinks it would be easier if he didn't visit at all...but  that is just terrible I know.sorry hope this actually makes sense.

Aww, I understand. It is difficult to say goodbye and doing it over and over is probably torture. However, the kids would probably be really upset if he never came to visit too.

true...I know they miss him all the time but they get into a rhythm or normalcy between visits.
