i was a child of that. 

my parents moved 5 hours away from family after they got married.  and my dad traveled for work.  he was gone pretty much every monday-friday.  i would only see him on weekends. he worked for himself so he also worked from home on weekends. 

i knew i had 2 parents, but my mom essentially raised me.  she was the disciplenatian and my my father was the “fun” dad.  when my brother and i were young, we had a family day at least once every weekend,  as we got older, we spent more time with friends on weekends.

i think i turned out fine.

Not sure if I am much help since I am only 1 week into being a mom (baby born dec 10th) but my husband works up north doing a rotation of 2 weeks in 2 weeks home all year long. Not going to lie I am nervous since I will be a single mom. For 1/2 the year but we will just do the best we can, the way we look at it is that regardless of the time away he will still have 2 solid weeks at home to spend with his son, as he only works 1/2 the month basically. 🙂 best of luck on your TTC journey dont let the fear of the unknown work situation put a damper on your wishes to have a family.
