My youngest nephew will by 1 year old shortly after Christmas. The 27th possibly? (I'm bad with dates I have to ask my husband when we started dating *rolls eyes*) He is a little chubby cheeked monster. We will call him Scott. (Names have been changed since I am paranoid ;)) My family has their own unique child rearing theory. "Children and animals are the world's biggest terrorists. You can not negotiate. Once you've given in they know you will break and will scream all the louder for all the longer." We just think that children need discipline and to know that there are consequences. When it is said, it is meant.
So my sister is raising her youngest while I raise my furbaby. We've decided that children and puppies are remarkably similar. For example right now Walker is sleeping on my lap because Lord help us all if he leave me alone for more than 2 seconds. He also has a tendency to try and chew the laptop as I type. Surprisingly Scott also has a taste for laptops and aren't little ones always begging to be picked up? When Scott wants to eat he lifts up his shirt so momma knows its time to nurse. When walker wants to eat he bites my toes. Walker occasionaly makes little mistakes in the house since hes still learning. And who would have thought that a toddler could take of his diaper by himself and poop in the driveway. I mean seriously? Smart little buggers they are. Walker tries to eat poop on our walks (he isn't allowed to silly, but it doesn't stop him trying), Scott tries to eat dirt (also not allowed to.) They have both been found with rocks in their mouth that somehow appeared out of a clear blue sky. The list could go one. I love my furbutt just as my sister loves her skinbaby. Even with all the trouble the cause, its what makes them unique and oh how I love them both.
A military wife is mostly girl. But there are times, such as when her husband is away and she is mowing the lawn or fixing a youngster's bike, that she begins to suspect she is also boy. She usually comes in three sizes: petite, plump and pregnant. During the early years of her marriage it is often hard to determine which size is her normal one. She has babies all over the world and measures time in terms of places as other women do in years.
I'm a 23 year old wife and mom trying to find a place in the world. I'm my husband's mistress since he's married to the army. I love to read, cook, and eat, not necessarily in that order. I live, I laugh, I cry, and sometimes I even get it right.
