Happy Veteran's Day!
In my life B.C. (before children), I served as an active-duty soldier in the United States Army. I served during the Gulf War, but I was fortunate enough to remain stateside, a fact for which I am still grateful.
A while back I wrote a post about how my U.S. Army Basic Training prepared me well for motherhood. You know: the exhaustion, the high-calorie food eaten at odd hours, the SNAFUs.
In that post, I missed some of the other similarities between parenting and being a soldier, but I have them today in honor of Veteran's Day. Take a look:
For Veteran's Day, there's a massive parade in my county, but Little Dude doesn't do so well with parades. So we'll be calling friends and family members who are veterans to thank them for their service. What are you guys doing for Veteran's Day?
