To help Jaylin understand that in so many days Daddy will be home, I have put 60+ hershey kisses in a candy bowl and each day Jaylin gets a chocolate kiss from Daddy until as the days go by he will be home to give her a kiss from him! Hopefully as she sees the amount of kisses going away it will help me reconfirm that he will be back home! At this point I just have a child that is addicted to the kisses and wants more than just one a day!! Wish me luck! Maybe I should have gone with the construction paper chain and took a link away for each day he is gone and until there is no chain left and he has returned...hmmm, it may be to late now!
