[Scrap Lumber] Daddy Countdown

AH!  We've all been soaking in every spare moment we've had to spend time with the guy who lives here with the kids and I... you know, my husband!!  He's home from another deployment and we couldn't be more excited.  We are so beyond fortunate that his deployments are really short compared to so many other people serving overseas.  There are so many families that count down months instead of days until their loved one returns.  Bryan was gone 38 days this time around.  I'm not sure how long that feels for an (almost) 4 year old and an (almost) 2 year old... but I do know that our little lady loved being able to countdown until daddy's return!

Oh man! Does this countdown look familiar?  Eek... I've been caught.  It's actually the same exact countdown I have been using for our countdown until baby #3 arrives!  I just used the other side of the bottom block to make our daddy count down!  By the way, we're down to just 32 days until baby!

And just incase you're in the market for one more great way to countdown to an event with kids, check out our Balloon Countdown.  It's probably my favorite countdown we've done so far!

Thank you so much for being so understanding for (all) of my blogging breaks and for still following along in our little journey!  I promise, there's always a good reason I vanish ;)

  1. Love those countdown blocks!
    I print calendars for my 5 and 6 year old so that they can visually see a countdown. Your method is much prettier!
    And wow, your due date is fast approaching. How exciting!
    Sending my best to your family,
