MilSpouse Friday

1. What is your must have gadget? submitted by Flying High With My Flyboy
  • My Kindle. I freaking WORSHIP the thing!!!

2. How does your adulthood compare to what you imagined it would be like when you were a little kid? submitted by L to the Third
  • Its actually not far off from what i wanted it to be! Ever since i was super super young, all I ever wanted to be was married with 2 daughters. I occasionally pictures myself as a teacher or nurse...but for the most part it was ALWAYS as a sahm to 2 daughters <3 Now the Navy wife part...thats a whole other story lol!

3. What is your favorite chocolate recipe?  submitted by Our First Deployment
  • however Hershey makes their chocolate. THAT is my fave ;)

4. How do you deal with military life when it gets to be to much or to hard? submitted by Combat Boots And Pointe Shoes
  • I take a pill ;) JUUUUUST kidding lol. I take a step back and usually drive to spend the night at my parents. Nothing chases the fears or anxiety away like sleeping in your childhood home.

5. What piece of advice would you give a new Military spouse facing their first deployment?  submitted by The Albrecht Squad
  • It wont last forever. Keep busy. Pick up a new hobby. Make new friends (but be careful of the infamous military wife drama). DONT count down days...count down paychecks!!! And make sure you keep the lines of communication open with your deployed spouse. That is KEY!

Confessions of a Not-So-Desperate Housewife pt.2

Man it kills me. You put so much effort into these little aliens from day 1. first, you make them (the daddy's fave part lol). then suffer thru (in my case) months and months of morning sickness aka all day long sickness. you get fat.

and finally...they make their sometimes traumatic entrance into the world.

you spend the next 2-3 years changing their butts. You feed them. you clothe them. you discipline them. you take them to school, cuddle them when they are sick (and usually have to clean up puke then too), you kiss millions of boo boos, you play barbies till you want to decapitate all her barbies (or GI Joes if you have boys). you wash thousands of loads of their laundry. they drain your bank acct and your energy.

And then one day, they no longer need you. Leaving you in the dust.

Doesn't sound fair to me.

Princess and Itty Bitty...Mommy begs of you to not grow up too fast. I will gladly take puke all over me and a million dirty diapers than to go through a day where you no longer need me.

I'll probably retract that statement when they are teenagers. By then, i may be ready to kick their butts out and make them society's problem instead of mine ;)
