    hi everyone

    hi my husband has just over a week ago been deployed to iraq for 7 months. its getting me down as i havent had much contact with him because of various things going on over there.
    we have 2 sons one 11 and the other 3. my 11 year old knows exactly whats going on but how do i explain to a 3 year old who keeps asking for his dad. it is going to really bother me over christmas as this will be our first apart. i know a lot of you will be in the same boat.
    i was just wondering how you cope.

    Hi Joanne and welcome!
    There are lots of threads on here about how people cope!
    My mum used to tell me when I was young just how it was, "daddy has gone to work for a while He helps other countries" or something like that!
