My husband travels a lot. I think last year he was on the road 250 days out of the year. However, he has just received a promotion which keeps him home more often. We all love it (I have 3 children - 6, 4, and 13 months). I have noticed however when he does go on the road usually 2 weeks out at the most. My son and daughter (6,4) seem to act out more. It's something I guess I have gotten used to, but it still makes for a stressful time. One thing I do when the "I miss daddy" arises is I let my children talk to my husband on the phone. This seems to ease the distance and they think it's fun to get to talk on the phone.
