I’m usually known for posting food related content here on the blog, however, I would like to take a break from that this week to write about something that is near and dear to my heart. The month of April has been deemed “the month of the military child.” As some of you know, I am a military spouse AND a military brat. I was born and raised inside the walls of military posts, looking up to soldiers like my father. It wasn’t long after college when I chose to marry into the very lifestyle that shaped who I am. I consider myself very lucky to have been able to experience things from the point of view as a child, and now from the point of view of a spouse.
Throughout my childhood and well into my years of motherhood , I have come to the realization that children who grow up within the walls of the military posses certain characteristics that make them unique to their civilian counterparts. Since April is the month of the military child, I would like to share with you a few things that everyone needs to know about these special kids that I have grown to love.
