    A BIG pile o' steaming Poo!

    We havent been married a whole month,and my Bride comes home friday night with the news that she will be deploying to Afgahnistan the end of september.
    I am not being a whiney baby,my dad retired from the Marines,and I did my obligation for the IDF,Tanks,the military is a way of life round here.
    My rub is that Ive only been a parent for a whole month,and now in less than a month I am going to be a lone parent!
    Keeping the little one safe is not a problem,nor is feeding,or teaching, but the "mommy only" things that keep me wondering.
    Any hints will earn you a seat at my Feasting Hall in the next life.

    Oh. Three years old is better than 13 years old.

    I'd say you're safe.

    That and pointing out other boys and quietly whisperering to her
    Dirty boy, all boys are bad. Dont ever touch.

    Hang in there. One day at a time.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    HA! But seriously, I feel for you. The best man at my wedding is an Army Husband. His wife's been to Iraq twice. Thankfully, she's now undeployable. They have a beautiful 3 yr old. He learned quickly how to essentially be a single father for a bit.

    Mike, I have no doubt that you will be a positive influence in your daughter's life.

    Teach her to be independent.

    Thank you Mrs. Iron Mike
    Mr. Mike, it's a lot easier than you think it is. Expecially when they are that young. Just take things one step at a time, answer only what they ask, nothing more, unless they ask more questions.
    I'll be glad to help where ever I can, as I'm sure many here will. Call on us as you need to.

    1st off..... Thank your wife for her sacrifice, and thank you.

    At 3, the girl will know who daddy is and his purpose. Shes' gonna miss Momy too.

    Encouragement will be key. Keep it up.

    Treat her like a friend but discipline her when necessary. Do things that she will like and don't blow her off. A daughter will become a Dad's best friend and treasure.

    Just do what she is receptive to and that you approve of. Before long, you guys will have a routine and then just follow it. Adjust it when she gives you the "signal".

    It can't be easy. But... you'll do fine.

    Just don't get discouraged... You're in good company with many who have loved ones deployed overseas!

    Your prior service, that of your wife currently and the rest of your family deserve to be recognized in the highest tradition of honor and service!

    You're among friends here and as QKShooter pointed out, you can ask all your "mommy questions" right here. We have plenty of mommies who will answer any question you have!
