MilSpouse Fill-in is on tap for today, head on over to check it out.
Hope all you fantastic followers and readers have a great weekend!
Have you and your spouse agreed to live in separate locations (a geographical bachelor tour) knowing that the short-term inconvenience would have long-term benefits for your family? How did it work for you? submitted by When Good People Get Together ............We have never agreed to living apart for more than 6 months during school. It has come up once or twice as an option, but it's never turned into a serious consideration. With 2 kids in the mix, our pro arguments were "not having to move the kids, & being able to go visit with family & usually some sort of monetary initiative." our con arguments were "not being together, and not being together, oh and not being together". If it ever turns into something we'll have to have a more in depth conversation.
What is your favorite thing about being a MilSpouse? submitted by Sarah Ruth Today
.......................I love seeing my man in uniform and the opportunity to visit and live in interesting places.
If you could still have your spouse/significant other and your family, but take the military life out of it…would you? submitted by Trust. Love. Believe. Bake. ............No. When we got married, the military wasn't even in our realm of possibility, but now that we are here, it is who we are and who I think we were meant to be.....at least for a while.
What have your homecoming experiences been like after a year long tour of separation? submitted by Army Soldier, Army Wife ............We haven't had a seperation of that length at one time, but I think on some level they are all the same. Elation (together again!), Awkwardness (will he still like me?), Acceptance (there are differences, but nothing we can't work through), & Normalcy (or as close as you can get.). I think the length of time it takes to get through these is based on how long its been since he left.
If you have a child(ren) why you chose their name(s)? If not, why you would name your child something? submitted by Tiara’s & ACU’s
..............................................We named our first Squidlet after my grandfather and myself. For the 1st 7 or 8 months her name was Cecelia Finn, but it was changed last minute and I've never looked back. Her name suits her.
Our second Squidlet's first name was the first and only name we ever considered. It was on both of our "if I ever have a son" lists before we even knew each other. He is also named after the Squids father.
