My mom and dad are soldiers…does that make me an Army BRAT?
Dear Mom and Dad..
My letter today states the obvious – that you and dad are soldiers, but can I just say I AM NO ARMY BRAT… If you look up the definition of an ARMY BRAT, (which if you know my Nana, she always makes you look up the definition of words you don’t know, or words you shouldn’t say, right mom?) So … if you look up the definition – Yes it is true I have military parents, and I have not lived in one place more than three years, (obviously) and yes we are forced to bend twist and turn with deployment and other military life stuff, but I took a poll here, and trust me when I say… NO ONE HERE THINKS I AM A BRAT! Words like ‘PRINCESS’, ‘SWEETIE’, CUTIE PIE, AND ADORABLE BUNDLE OF JOY ARE UTTERED CONSTANTLY BUT NEVER ever BRAT!
In lieu of the fact that today is MONDAY, and as we have established in my past letters, that leaves me ‘hangin’ not with my ‘peeps’ but with the “singin’ Nana” of the midwest -and since all of my FUNSTERS MUST go to work and school WELL THAT LEAVES US TWO….. and well… you MUST know… she (being a mom herself) has the two of you guys on the brain (just like you two have ME on the brain)… She is reading me stories about mom’s and dad’s. And telling me all about your days – and how you are both hard at work. Sometimes even in song… or something that is supposed to be a song… I am living in a darn musical. Doesn’t she know?
1. I am too little to REALLY UNDERSTAND THE BOOKS she is reading… and
2. that I could never ever forget the way mom plays with my hands, and the way dad makes me smile…the way they hold me and the sound of their voices… BELIEVE ME, I know, and in just days, I get to feel all those things again…. and guess what dad… THE NEW FORMULA SMELLS EVEN MORE DEEEEE-LISH THAN SIMILAC ADVANCED…. bet you can’t wait.
Anyway, she tries to keep my head full, with all kinds of things, but all joking aside, mostly- she does keep it all fun and full of love!
She has a silly picture of daddy on her cell phone, and lots of pictures of mom around… WITH BANGS! (ha dad, Nana says you think those pictures are funny, but Nana says all the kids used to wear bangs! Kind of like in the 80’s when guys had mullets, and now no one does. ( MAYBE DAD SHOULD TRY A MULLET WHEN HE LETS HIS HAIR GROW? Nana says she will put the photo up next to Mom’s with bangs…) I also like 80’s girls in big hair… who knows maybe if I grow some one day, I will try 80’s big hair… OR EVEN BANGS. Maybe if you’re really lucky, I could even try to cut my own one day… that is always a fun trick. (or so I am told) Nana says gum in the hair however is not very princess like.
So my photos for the day, hmmmm it was a hard choice, some photos of mom with bangs, and dad being silly or ME…. and the winner is… ME! Did you really have to wonder what the answer would be? If you wondered, you most certainly are not visiting my .com enough, because if you were, you would know….IT IS AFTERALL TITLED… “all about Guillianna”. The rest of the folks here are just supporting cast…. Here I am in my ACU’s, but personally mine are called PCU’S, for Princess Combat Uniform, and no daddy you cannot have a pair! This is special princess issued gear! YOU MUST BE A PRINCESS TO WEAR IT!
Today and always, I LOVE MY SOLDIER PARENTS, and am counting the days down already until you are on leave. XO XO XO Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
P.S. HELLO AGAIN TO ALL MY LOYAL FOLLOWERS, MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO ARE ALWAYS READING MY LOVE LETTERS…. I would mention you all by name, but again, there would be sooooo many… and the site is afterall ALL ABOUT ME… in addition, I am not sure I can spare the space, that might mean less photo ops for me…. (hee hee) and Nana wouldn’t have that now would she… Love GuGu-Bee
