    I agree - I freak out when DH goes to Sydney for one night. Hats off to those parents who's partners are away for weeks/months at a time - in the armed forces etc

    Amen to that!

    My DH has only ever been away for a week at a time, and I have found that so hard. Even then though I still had his emotional and financial support, so yep, it gave me a whole new appreciation for what single parents go though!

    my sister said similar recently. her dh was away for a week.
    she said 'gee and I thought he did nothing at home, but he distracts the girls and does bath/story bed etc'
    she was heaps more appreciative for the next few days

    I could not agree more!

    My hubby is home most of the time but when he does venture off on a business trip, my mind immediately goes to the women and men who are single parents.

    To those of you who do the job of two people twenty four hours a day, I take my hat off to you - you are nothing short of amazing.

    Ah its nice to be thanked, Dh is good but he just doesnt get how hard it can be for 4/5/6 weeks at a time. TBH though I dont know if I could cope with out the Financial support him being away affords us, so I take my part time single mum hat off to all those full time single mums out there!!!!
