Makes it worthwhile....

The last couple of months have been overwhelming, tough, a huge learning curve and to be honest a little stressful.

This week we have received emails for the Christmas Party, requesting your children be added to the list, so many people are in situations where My Daddy is a Soldier Adventures will help and so many of the emails bring a tear to my eye. Why?
Emotionally I may bury the scars of deployment but; I know that feeling of being on your own, partner on tour and the desperation of 'I need to get out this house', do something with my child(ren) that's fun and uplifting, wear a smile and be with others that understand and where I don't have to explain my situation or why it might be hard right now. Be in a comfort zone.

Something huge that has come to our notice recently is that many of you, myself soon to be included, are married unaccompanied and that has its unique challenges too along with deployment and I want to support you guys.

So what makes it worthwhile?! YOU DO, knowing that we can all get together with our children this Christmas and celebrate our soldiers, this odd life we call 'Army Life' and be proud of our Little Troopers at home...

My Daddy is a Soldier Adventures  Free Christmas Party is on 21st December 2011 12.30 - 4pm at The Victory Services Club in central London Santa, Entertainment, Food, Disco and much more! Email with the children attending and ages.

We can not wait to meet you all xxx
