My daughter’s sadness
This past week was full of mixed feelings. I am talking about myself mainly here…but I am also talking about my eldest that gets really sad when talking to her daddy sometimes.
Well…she usually gets sad when she knows her daddy’s time to arrive is coming…You might say that she should be happy instead but I think that she’s is a bit too much like her mummy. No matter what plans we have for when daddy is here I always think about the time when he will have to go away again.
What can I do to make my almost 6 years old feel better?
Give her even more attention that she usually gets from me, leave the blogging for moments when she is asleep, watch Dr Who or whatever program she wishes in the evenings, play Lego…and so much more.
I think another reason for her sadness is the fact that my sister went back to Abu Dhabi too. She loves her aunty so much. Well my sister does spoil her a lot too! We will hopefully visit my sister together soon but until then I will manage to fill her life and her sister with lots of fun and distraction.
Look how she’s smiling in her aunty’s arms:
Such a beautiful girl – gorgeous photos. #livingarrows

These are lovely photos and lovely words.

It must be so difficult for her to understand – we know what it is like to have to say goodbye to people as an adult. Lovely photos.

She sounds like a lovely girl, you are doing everything to support her by spending time with her.
Tricky to do it all when you are doing it alone most of the time. It’s lovely that she has so many people who care about her and make her happy.

She is beautiful and there are things that you can do to help her cope more. There are some fab CD called Relax kids which will really help.
awww bless her, i do hope the sadness lifts for her soon and that there are a lot more smile x

It’s so hard on children, especially sensitive ones when family members aren’t able to be close by. No wise words to help her but a few extra hugs will help xox
Mums do travel
I’m sorry that she’s sad. It is difficult when children don’t see the people that they love. Mine are always affected when my husband is working abroad, which is fairly often.
Beautiful photo there with Aunty. I am sorry you’re struggling.
amazing photos and I really hope things start to get better and you change the saddened to happiness x
She is just so beautiful!
It must be so hard to say goodbye. What a gorgeous family you are, the photo with your sister is just beautiful. #livingarrows

Aww, it’s hard to understand at that age, bless her. The first photo is gorgeous! x
That is so tough! I remember the first 2 years of dating with OH were were apart & I’d do the same as your daughter: Sad for the anticipation of leaving.
oh that picture of you both is so sweet! x
Gorgeous photos. My little one gets sad when his daddy goes away and that’s a lot. I can imagine it’s so hard. x
