To be a dad is an amazing feeling to Rutledge. He is very thankful to social networking sites like Skype and FaceTime as it has helped a lot to connect with the kids of traveling parents.

Rutledge mentioned,

"The hardest thing about being a parent that travels, and any parent that travels knows this, you constantly want to be connected with your world at home, so when you get there, it is seamless. You pick up right where you left off.The hard thing is that when you are gone your partner has to work so hard that everything else is taken care of, and it doesn’t feel the void of you being gone. So it is tough when you are all having a good time, and you have to say stop, and you get off of FaceTime, and they realize that daddy is not there. It is a very delicate balance to live off of that."

"Nothing worse than when your kids get sick :( Dr said we're good though, so lots of fluids & her favorite tshirt! :)"
