We are a family of 4 in Perth with my husband travelling FIFO for work. We already had a hard time explaining where Daddy was and where, so we developed the travelling worker magnet.
Then my younger sister enlisted in the Australian Army.
Aunty Jen, who was a constant figure in our kids lives was all of a sudden gone. It been 2 years now since she started her ADF journey and my eldest was only 3years old at the time. My youngest, Zander was all of 1 when Aunty Jen moved away and is often confused as to why he only speaks to her via video calls.
Defence force workers are sometimes required to work far away from home. Often for extended periods of time.
Sometimes they cannot disclose their exact location for security reasons, so family is only told a general 'area' they are operating in.
This countdown magnet is an aid for children to track the journey of their loved one. They can aknowledge the distance and move of travel, along with making notes of things to do together once the countdown is complete.
