One of the hardest parts about being deployed in the military is being away from one’s children. It’s tough on the soldier, tough on the spouse, and especially tough on the kids. Leave it to technology to find a way to help!
Last November, I read a great article in Parade Magazine called “Wish You Were Here”. It was there I learned about a blog called “A Year with Flat Daddy” . A soldier’s wife heard about a site called Flat Daddies, where they take a photo of a soldier and make a life-size print to keep at home.
It is such a great idea, I just had to share it. Hope you like it!
