I'm so sorry you are even facing this dilemma. That really, really stinks.

I am spending Christmas apart from DH this year. It isn't exactly what I want but we made certain plans and now feel we have to stick to them.

However, we don't have a brand new baby! This is just my opinion but if it is an option for you to be with him for Christmas, I would do it. I know how important my family is to me but if it was between being with my family (parents and brothers) or having a first Christmas as a new little family, I would try to do that.

Is there a way you could just fly out for a few days so you don't have to try to do the big move on such short notice? Or, since Christmas is on a weekend, could he try to get a 4 day pass and fly to be with you? It would be worth a shot for him to at least try that. They may be willing to work with him more since it is Christmas.

Good luck. I understand how difficult it is wanting to be in two places at once!

We are looking into him flying here for the holiday weekend. That way, he could see the family and then maybe we could fly back together. Hopefully his new company will allow him to do it. I am crossing my fingers! I really want us to be together as a family this year.
