"You know, there's a lot good to this.
My only problem, and I suppose it's little and nit-picky, comes with the part about people being supplied shovels.
There are some people who have very supportive, loving upbringings, and are, by…"
"Best Little Whorehouse in Texas - Stage version, not the film. They took out two of the best songs for the screen version, just so Dolly could squeeze in two of her own. *ka-ching*
Of newer movies, I have a guilty love of Enchanted. I have seen…"
"Scott and Jean Summers.
Oliver Queen and Dinah Laurel.
Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.
All of this was tempered by my grandmother, and her strange love of The Doctor, (his first seven incarnations), Captain Kirk, and my grandfather, in that order. :)"
"My mom suggested this and we are going to start the blanket sleeping in January to have a stash ready. I'll probably send a couple of 6 packs with him to send home Sailor-scented.
There are a lot of babies being born in Sailor's division…"
"Would it work to being a bunch of cheap receiving blankets with you and tuck them inside your pillows? After they get your scent in them, cut them into sections to mail back to MttM in Ziploks. Hell...all 3 of them will want to snuggle with the…"
"What about a "good night" cd? You telling stories, singing songs, reading books - doesn't really matter at that age - that gets put in the player every night at bedtime. Baby won't get tired of it, and your voice be the last…"
"Is there a way to play a DVD when you're deployed? Making videos back and forth isn't quite as immediate as Skype, but you can get a picture of your kid and vice versa.
This sucks and I'm keeping fingers crossed that it all works out…"
"I think laminated pictures of yourself would be great. I know there are little books called something like "who loves baby" with open slots to put in family pictures.
To be honest, I think the separation would be harder on everyone else…"
"There is a program that provides the books and even helps with the videos and such for book reading to kids during deployments. I'll find the name of it.
I bet the kids would love to meet some of your coworkers via TroopTube.
"That's a great idea Tea.
Don't forget Love about that handy video website for military. Like you tube. You can send new videos of yourself (maybe reading a story of your own to the boys). Plus Mo and Max will love to see video of your…"
I'm a struggling Petty Officer 3rd class, hoping to make 2nd this next time around. In addition to trying to keep the radar running, (now that I'm officially off of Food Service duty), I strive to keep my family clean, happy, and under a roof. And occasionally throw a story or poem down onto paper, though that usually falls after Guitar Hero...
What's something about your kid(s) that makes you happy?
Max - His impromptu songs and raps
Morgan - His made-up stories
Finn - His new smile
