Well, my hubby is currently in Iraq. He is an MP and we have been together going on 5 years. So we went through his basic training together and now are almost at the end of our 1st deployment. He should be home sometime late Feb. We have 5 kids together. Four boys and one little girl. Between him being at basic and being deployed..he missed both of our youngest births. And was only home 7 monthes between basic and deploying. So he really doesn't know his youngest son and has not meant his daughter as of yet. Though this time apart has been hard it has also brought us very close to each other.It has made our love for eath other strong and the little things that we didn't much pay attention to now mean the most to us. We can not wait for him to be home.
