Moms Share Their Joyful Military Reunions

Dad's Little Man
Kids can have very different reactions to the return of a absent parent. When Olga's husband returned from a stint in Chile, her youngest was standoffish, but her older boy couldn't get enough.

Olga shared, "Joey was a little anxious, asking every other minute when he’d be able to see Daddy at the airport. Once he saw him, he ran towards him and, of course, hugged and kissed him. Joey was all about Dad that entire week — ate on his lap, asked Daddy to put him to bed, brush his teeth, etc. Dad was even able to take him to his first day of preschool."
