We just finished our first deployment and DH has been home for about 3 weeks. I'm definitely thrilled to have him home, but it's still difficult a lot of times when I'm used to doing something by myself or being by myself and he's there. When he was away, I came and went as I pleased (or as much as LO's schedule allowed), took care of all of the errands myself, took care of the house, and took care of LO. Everything continued very smoothly while he was gone. Now that he's home, I'm still running the errands, taking care of the house, and taking care of LO, but now I no longer get to watch what I want on TV (he wants to play video games a majority of the time), I don't get to cook what I want (he doesn't like a lot of the foods I do), and I have to work him into my schedule. I know I probably sound horrible saying this, but there's a part of me that misses the freedom and independence I had during the deployment. Is it normal to feel like this? The only other experience similar to deployment that we've had was when he was away for 5 months at BOLC.
So there's this boy. He kinda stole my heart. He calls me "Mom"
