Dp has been doing fifo since November last year.
He has a very close relationship with our 3.5 year old daughter. At first she didn't seem to really notice he was gone for such a long time, in her mind it was like he was gone one day then back again, she couldn't comprehend the fact that 2 weeks had actually passed.
Ive noticed the last two times that she is finding it harder. Last stint she kept commenting "daddy gone to work" and I'd tell her he'll be back home soon.
He's just left for another 15 days on Tuesday and tonight she was watching a movie in her room and when I went to check on her I noticed she had tears on her cheek. When I asked what was wrong she hugged me so tight and said she misses daddy at work. It completly broke my heart. I brought her out to sit with me on the couch and she sat close to me and pointed to the space next to her and said "thats Daddys seat" Then got grumpy at our cat for attempting to sit in his seat.
It just makes me so sad that shes missing him so badly. We talk to him at least once a day. Any tips for dealing with this???
