The latest news from Captain Husband

Portrait of the modern military family

Captain Husband and I are super fortunate in that we're generally able to talk to each other about once a day on Skype, which means CH gets to see Sammy and watch him grow up even though he's several thousand miles away. I only worry a little bit about Sammy thinking that his dad lives in the computer, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Anyway, we were talking the other morning and it's now looking as though the earliest that CH will be able to make it home would be for Sammy's first birthday. In June. Of 2011. As in eight months from now. *Super sigh* I'm bummed, but I can't say that I'm too surprised, to be honest. I guess that's one of the benefits of operating on minimal expectations.

We're now toying with the idea of me (and maybe Sammy, depending on how brave/reckless I'm feeling) going over to South Korea for a week or so in February or March depending on CH's situation. Fortunately my passport is up to date, and I had the forethought to get one for Sammy as well, with the idea of us possibly all moving to South Korea in the near future. The thought of attempting an international flight with a small child all by my lonesome makes my hands go all clammy, but it's probably do-able as long as Captain Husband makes sure to borrow/buy everything that we'd need ahead of time so that I'm not saddled with having to bring all of Sammy's gear along with me. Another option is to leave Sammy under the watchful care of my family while I'm gone, but I would hate to deny CH and Sammy the chance to spend time together.

Take Sammy along and have fun in Korea. There are lots of kid-friendly places to visit. Trust me, you won't regret this.

Have a nice day!

Ya know benadryl makes the kiddos sleepy....that's what my ped said when I had a cross country flight with a 7 month old. :)

take Sammy! I did an 18 hr flight, plus 3 layovers this past summer- alone with a 7 month old and a 7 year old. It wasn't too too bad!

I'm so glad to have found your blog because I don't know anyone who has a spouse in the military. It's giving me a look at the sacrifice you and your husband are making for my family and our country.

I think you should take Sammy. I have a dear friend who lives in Australia and has made the trip to the US at least twice by herself and several times with her husband. It amazes me because I don't like driving to Boston with my crazy kids. You can do it! And what a wonderful reunion it will be!

You should totally go and take Sammy! I have several friends that have husbands in or on the way to Korea and they all have small kids and can't wait to go visit. Even if the flight is Horrible(God forbid) it will be worth it!

I say go for it! It should be fun and I heard it's not as bad as a lot of moms think it would be.

Thanks for the input, everyone! I think in the long run it will be worth whatever hassle comes along just so that we can have a happy little family reunion.
