  1. We said “see you later” to Dad a few weeks ago and are supported by a wonderful community in Japan of on-base families with one parent often deployed. I have two boys, 7 and 4, and a little girl, 2. Today, our neighbor brought over water guns to play with her daughter – huge win for the warm day we had today!
    I found your podcast a couple months ago and I enjoy listening to it while doing dishes when all is quiet after bedtime. Thank you for hosting a military spouse and recognizing the unique situation many of us boy moms are in.

    1. oh bless you…How long will your husband be gone? So glad you have a strong community and truly grateful for all of you who serve as a family so that the rest of us can live securely! Sending hugs and aloha!
      PS Is there a US address that a book could be sent to if you win?

      1. Aloha! Ideally 6 months. I feel for them that they won’t be able to step off the ship as long as coronavirus is a concern.
        Yes, we have a US Post office here.

  2. Boy mom of 3: ages 5,4, and 1. Solo parenting often, because my husband is active duty. I related so much to your podcast! Especially the letting go of your independence when your husband returns. And I love “raising privileges with responsibilities.” I will keep this in mind as I am just approaching the balance with my 5 year old. Raising rough and tumble boys is not for the faint of heart. Thanks for the podcast! Would love to read your book!

    1. I’m so glad you listened and found it helpful!! Blessings to you as you’re right in the thick of it. Blessings, Jen McD
