- What is ONE thing you’d like civilians to understand about being a military family?
Pssh that Uncle Sam does NOT send more money our way just for us wives to get knocked up repeatedly. That we do not carry little heathen kidlets around for 9 months, just to be tortured through the act of child birth just to make an extra couple bucks. And not all MilFamilies are uneducated, babypopping, barefoot, fugly, lazy lard tushies that milk the gov’t for everything we can. Because let’s be honest here… The U.S. Gov’t is in worse financial state then most people in the world. They are just better at pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes, borrowing behind backs, and raising taxes to cover their greediness. Back to the subject at hand though, we make do with what we have, yes the benefits make it a little bit easier but it’s still just as a struggle in the military as it is as a civilian to have a big family.
- What is your favorite mistake?
It’s not a mistake anymore. The first year I thought it was, I used to cry at night about where my life was going to be headed. In reality almost 12 years later, I couldn’t be happier to be the mom of the most beautiful, super tall, smart, and funny soon to be 12 year old preteen. She is my rock that keeps me centered some days. She’s not a mistake she’s a blessing that came in disguise.
- What indulgence could you give up for a year?
Hmm I’m selfish, no really I am therefore I really can’t say I’d give up much. BUT since I’ve already gone almost 7 months without buying an expensive Starbucks or Dutch Bros. Coffee; I’ll go with that. My indulgences are very small and if I had to give them up then everyone around me would be miserable.
- If you could be a winged animal, what would you be?
- What is one question you’d like to see asked in a future MFF?
LMAO omgosh I am such a dweeb. Last night while watching WEEDS I read this question and thought it was a new term for MILF. I was so utterly confused so I went to bed ignoring this, got up this morning and now I realize it is not in references to mothers but to the Milspouse Meme instead. *palmsforhead* With that said I’d like to see this question…
“If you could be a fugitive from the law for whatever reason; what would your crime be?”
