Life as a Truck Drivers Long Term Girlfriend
I have been with my boyfriend for 5 years and we have 3 kids together. Just in the last couple months he left to get a job driving OTR.
The company he is driving for only sends them home one day for every week they work out of the month. I haven't seen my man except over the webcam since last month.
We missed having Thanksgiving with him and we might miss being together for Christmas. I miss him so much and our kids are 4 and under and it hurts when they say "wheres daddy" or "why isn't daddy eating dinner with us" or when i go to get them from my moms and they yell "mommy - daddy" and have to c there face when I tell them daddy isn't here.
I know it will get easier but for now I cry when the kids aren't looking. I talk to my boyfriend everyday and text him when he is sitting waiting.
I miss him like crazy but I would never tell him to give it up, It has been his dream to go back to driving OTR ever since his ex-wife gave him the choice me or the road and he keeps saying if I knew I would have found you then I would have never left driving and I cant take his dream away from him.
