MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #53



The best thing my parents taught me to do when I was a child was to
 respect myself as well as others.  They taught me manners, which is something that I think is seriously lacking in this world.


However, one thing I wish they did differently was discipline my brother and myself more calmly. My parents are both yellers, and that's the one thing I won't tolerate in my household.  I love them, and I think they did a great job with us, but to this day I can't stand someone raising his or her voice in my presence.


One thing I've always wanted to try but haven't is skydiving!!  It WILL happen once I'm no longer pregnant.



One thing I never thought I'd try but I have is living in Guam. Seriously.. never saw that one happening.


If I could give my 16-year-old self one piece of advice I'd tell myself study!!  Apply for more scholarships!  I think about this one every single month when I'm paying my student loans. Boo.

  1. The lack of manners in our generation and younger ones really is shocking. I know I'm not a parents, so it's easy to say I would never let my child do x,y and z. But, there are some things I see that are absolutely appalling. Especially, what people let their kids get away with, on payday, shopping in the commissary. Yikes.

  2. OMG, I would not skydive in a million years so I look forward to reading about when you do, LOL! I could go on and on about manners, especially other people's kids, but there is not enough room on your blog. All I know is if my kids acted the way some other people's kids acted in our home, my kids would not be allowed to go anywhere without me.
