For most of us school has begun and the lazy days of summer are over. This also means we are trying to get our kids on a new routine filled with homework, shorter afternoon playtimes and going to bed earlier. If you have a preschooler this can be especially tough to handle as a one woman / man show.

On a personal note, when our sons were younger my husband would leave letters behind before he left on deployment since we were never sure if or when there would be a mail drop. I would save them and space them out during the deployment. It worked well and alleviated the stress of waiting for the mail to come and hope there would be a letter from dad.
