Everyone's heard of the "my hands look like this so her hands can look like that post" and this is what my man's version is.
It's hard, it sucks, we miss him, he misses us and it's downright exhausting on both ends... but he's out working 7, 12's with no days off in 30° weather so I can stay home with our children, watch them grow and raise them into hard working men like he has become.
Raising boys isn't for the weak hearted that's for sure.
When it comes down to it I miss him terribly. I wish he was home everyday, but he's making a future for our family and if that means driving 7 hours every other weekend to see him or doing simple things like coloring pages and sending them to him then that's what we will do.
Some days we are tired, some days we are struggling, some days it's hard for him to stay gone, but everyday we are #dadsofinstagram #ilovehim #dad #myman #boymom #wemissdaddy #family #love #writingletters #oilfield #coldweather #babe
