Husband missed everything, 1 week to almost 18 months deployed with our oldest
I’m a single mom. So when my son was younger I worked full time I still work full time. However when he was younger I missed a lot of his Milestones first time rolling over his first words Etc
missed my 1st baby's 1st steps
missed my childs birth and 6 months due to being deployed
missed my son's first steps. I was at work and my Mom had sent me a video of them. I cried at my desk. I wish I could have been there!
was a single mom working full time and going to school. Pretty much missed everything between 6 months and 5 years old.
I'm a working mom and I always told my husband that if it happened when I was at work, pretend it didn’t so I could enjoy seeing the "firsts" as well.
missed first, second and third laugh and his first steps. I bawled because his sitter posted his first steps on Facebook and when I logged on it was in my feed. Facebook world seen it before me
missed the birth of my first child. Was being deployed to Iraq for the army. I did get to come home in emergency leave but mosc the birth by 4 hours.
missed my youngest daughters first baseball games because I was working out of town
have always worked when my 4 kids were little. I knew my daycare would see my kids do things for the first time before so I would ask them not to tell me. But to wait for me to tell them it happened. Worked for my mental health. I didn’t miss anything.
I was sitting in the airport waiting for my flight home and was on the phone with my wife when she started pushing
my mom pulled his first loose tooth while i was at work, said she didn't want to miss it
My dad missed my high school graduation. I didn't walk because I was so sad that he wasn't going to be there.
my son is 9 months old and I've missed ever milestone so far due to my work as an hvac technician. Me and over time have a love hate relationship.
