I wish the kids and I could actually call him when we wanted to. It stinks, I don't have a phone number to call my husband... I have an email address that he is able to check regularly and a FPO address which snail mail takes about a month to get to him...
In the event of an emergency I would contact the Family Readiness Officer that's here on base and/or the American Red Cross.
The only other important "Dad" in my life is my Father-in-Law, whom I already called. I have a really good relationship with my in-laws. So not typical, I know!
My father is not involved in my life. I don't even remember the last time I talked to him. On my birthday all I got was a message posted on my Facebook wall... Because it's so much harder to pick up a phone... My parents divorced when I was 5.
Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there, hope you all have a great day!
