“Our daddies have to work really hard.  And sometimes we have to too.  And sometimes when you’re the only boy in the house, you have to take care of your mom.”
~Big C on life as a military brat

 In honor of April and the Month of the Military Child, I thought I’d turn over this week’s top 10 list to my 7-year-old son Big C. 

   Here are his…  Top 10 Pros and Cons of Being a Military Brat 

10)  CON:  I don’t like making new friends because I like my old ones.  If I don’t see my friends in a long time, I forget about them.

9)  PRO: We get to meet people in different countries.

8)  CON: My daddy misses my baseball practices.

7) PRO: My dad buys me stuff when he’s on trips.

6)  CON: My dad goes on a lot of trips.

5)  PRO: We have good parents, and we have a good life.

4)  CON: I don’t like moving because it’s boring going on long car drives and on airplanes.

3)  PRO : When my dad comes back from trips we play golf together.

2)  CON : I don’t get to see my dad a lot.

1)  PRO: My daddy is a hero.

 What tops your military brat’s list?
