Whenever C deploys for a long time, we have a jar of kisses for T. Every day, he gets one kiss from Daddy. When the kisses are all gone, that's when Daddy is coming home to give us real kisses. I try to keep extra on hand because some days, he needs more kisses from Daddy and some days, he knows I need a kiss from Daddy too. We only needed a quart size jar (as opposed to last years half gallon jar), but it still seems like such a long time when the jar is so full.
Last night, I was thinking of how I was going to include this deployment in our scrapbooks, besides the pics of everyday life without Daddy around, and I decided to use the jar of kisses. It holds so much for us-kisses from Daddy, time, hope, excitment, love, and chocolate (!). So I thought this would be the perfect way to include his time away from us.
