Ok, so 5 days will officially be the longest Danny and I have been apart since we've been married. At the end of day two, I had my first cry-fest. I can't help it. I miss him. We've had no contact at all. How do military wives do it?!
Christian has been pretty cute through all of this though. He has told me several times about "Driving to the airport, and then Daddy going on an airplane, and then Daddy is in Belize." He won't sleep for nap or bedtime without his little pretend airplane, and before bedtime we kiss Belize on the blow up globe that he has in his room. Today Christian told me the whole story, and ended it with "I love daddy so much." Be still my heart.
I'm still trying to shake this cold, which also added to my cry-fest. I just want my hubby to cuddle me as I feel crummy. My mother-in-law stopped by to check on me tonight (and bring a couple cans of chicken noodle soup) and when she knocked on the door Christian sprang to his feet, yelled "DADDY'S HOME!" as he ran to the door.
Counting down...two days down and three to go.
Oh, and P.S. - I haven't talked to or heard from Danny except for catching a Facebook status he posted today: "Listening to monkeys hollering in the Belizean rainforest." I can't wait to hear his stories!
