We've moved around three states because of it and he's had tough time holding job. The day before Easter last year, he got really sick and was in the ICU for a longest time. Every time we thought he's doing better, he gets sick again. The uncertainty has always put a lot of stress and pressure on me and my husband because we have two daughters who totally rely on us. We are responsible for two most beautiful souls.
So, today, my husband JT packed his stuff and moved to NJ by himself to work for his father again. Ju Ju still has school to finish and right now, we call Florida our home. So, as much as it hurts, Daddy is doing what he's gotta do - to do what's best for our family.
After dropping off Daddy, Ju Ju was crying looking out the window at the bay saying that she misses her daddy. "Land Slide" by Dixie Chicks was playing in the background and she wouldn't stop crying while I was holding her tiny hand (BTW, I was also driving with my left hand. LOL) - on the other hand, Soapy was like, "Well, mommy, we can go and see him every weekend!"
We're not sure about many things, but JT will be commuting between FL and NJ. We're hopeful and we can't wait for Daddy to come home for Soapy's birthday in March. For now, I have to play both Mommy and Daddy for the girls..
