Tonight at bedtime Aiden wanted me to put him down. I explained to him that Daddy wanted to do it because he wasn't going to see him for a long time. After trying to explain to him the concept of a year and months and distance and why we wouldn't be able to see daddy and why he can't just come home, Aiden said this..."mommy, when daddy is gone I don't think that I can talk about him". My response: "why". His: "well because I know I will miss him too much so maybe I can just dream about him"...BROKE. MY. HEART!!!
We will dream about him, talk about him, think about him, and plan for his return!!! With each card I am dealt, I will figure it out! But for tonight...he changed his mind and Daddy to put him to bed!
