While I know that it’s allowed to have fun without daddy here, my heart wasn’t on board with this idea. Family vacations are for families, and part of ours is on the other side of the Earth. I tried to think of a way to include daddy… result = Flat Daddy. Genius!
The boys were a little unsure of Flat Daddy at first. After a while though, they started asking for him when I got out the camera. Military life is hard. You live separate lives, but still have to find creative ways to stay connected. If you don’t, you remain separated even when you are reunited. Hopefully, that makes sense… it did in my head.
My husband will probably think I’m a dork and that’s ok. Deep down I know that he appreciates that he’s not forgotten. And I know that the boys enjoyed having daddy with us on vacation, even if he is 5″ tall and a little on the glossy side.
Flat Daddy had many adventures at Disney World. I wonder what he’ll get into next…
