so it's still a few weeks (okay months) away before dh comes home (10 down, five to go). so mil and i were talking about when she'll see ds and i again (in three weeks for his 1st bday and then possibly they'll come down when we move back on base at christmas). she went on and on how much she misses us, we do miss her too and love her much. suddenly, she mentions how she wants to be there when dh comes home!
ugh! how do i explain to her, no! you can't be there! those precious 48hrs he gets off after he gets back from being gone 15 months we need to be just the three of us. dh needs to be the one to tell her, but i have a feeling i'll end up having to tell her. ugh!
side note, she was there when he came home from his first deployment, but i wasn't in the picture yet. she wasn't there the last time he came home, but i was. this time i feel like it needs to be ds (who was 5wks old when dh deployed) and me (and all the other spouses and soldiers reuniting for the first time in a long time).
thanks for reading this far.
