One of the many of thousands of reasons I miss my husband when he is deployed is his ability to tie a tie. This is especially true since my son has to wear ties to school sometimes.
In the past I have had my long-suffering husband tie a tie before he deployed and then tried to keep the knot neat as my son pulled said tie on and off during the months Dad was gone.
Pathetic, I know.
This year, my daughter had to have a tie for her summer reading project, so I was on the hook again before the school year even started!
Learn to Tie a Tie ap to the rescue. Yes, there is an ap for that.
And here is my little photo journalist report of the outcome.
My first attempt. Eek.
My second attempt. Marginally better.
My third and final attempt. Good enough for a girl!
And that is how I make it through all the challenges of a deployment, big and small. In this case, very small.
