The first few days when my husband is away, they are always the worst. The kids miss there Dad and in turn, act out a little. We then start to adjust to our secondary routine — yes we have two, one when Dad’s home and one when Dad’s away. The dog even has a new routine when Dad’s away. My daughter tries to see how far she can push me, what she can get away with – It isn’t much, but I have to give her credit for trying.
Life certainly changes when Dad’s away.
The first few days, my anxiety runs a little higher than usual because of ‘The Curse’. Oh yes, I have given it the name.
