Friday Fill-in and 5QF

milspouse-friday-fill-in
  1. I always feel like I’m  _________________ years old, but in reality, I’m _________________ .  Sometimes these fill in the blank questions are hard to answer.  I’m 31, and I feel like I’m 31 and I’m glad to be 31.
  2. I wish my family understood better when I tell them that being a military spouse isn’t easy.  I’ve had my mom tell me more than once that I “knew what I was getting in to when I married Mark”, when in actuality, I had NO clue what I was getting in to.  That’s like saying you know exactly what it’s going to be like being a parent before you have kids... 
  3. If you saw me when I’m sitting on the couch, painting my nails, you’d think I was a total girly-girl, but if you saw me when I sometimes get tired of shopping after 10 mins, you’d think I was a tomboy through-and-through.
  4. I feel like I’m in a totally different universe when I’m in a gym…  They intimidate me.
  5. In honor of this being MFF #60… 60 months ago  (exactly 5 years ago, so September 30, 2006) I lived in Pensacola, FL  and my life was totally different because I’d been married 3 months, was in the process of selling my horse (not fun), worked a job I didn’t like all that much and we didn’t have Sadie or Abbie yet.
5QF
1. Do you apologize to your kids if you're wrong?  Yes, I do.  I make her apologize when she does something bad/ wrong, so I do the same thing.  You lead by example.

2. Do you have a class ring, letterman's jacket, or similar obscenely priced high school "must have"?  No, I don’t think I have anything like that.  I wasn’t much into “trendy” stuff in high school, and I’m still not.

3. If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would you choose?  I guess I would say 31 (my current age), with my 21 year old body.  =)

4. What is your favorite (unused) baby name?  For girls, I like Caitlyn and Anabelle.  For boys, I like Benjamin and Max and I’m still thinking of others.

5. If you could make your child like something what would it be?  Currently, I would make her like to share.  For when she’s older, I would love to give her the curiosity to see other cultures and love to travel.
Happy Friday!

I notice you're a military wife, living overseas? I thank both you and your hubs for his service. My son is AF. He and his wife are currently in England.

sharing is a good thing for a child to like. Yeah, I could go for that one too. Right now, I would like them to like to sleep!
