Would you choose the life of a "Military Brat"? For yourself or your kids? (my kids are not brats, we all know the term)
I wonder how my children will feel about this life when they are older? My hope is that when Princess gets into the Tween and Teenage years we will be able to stay in one location and not have to move every three years. I definitely do not want her or Bobo to have to change schools during High School.
On the one hand, we will move a lot, leave friends behind. But on the other, they will gain life experiences that not everyone gets growing up.
I moved to different houses and changed schools often growing up but I spent the first 23 years of my life in the same general location in Colorado.
Princess has already lived in 4 different states and she is only 6. Bobo is now on his second. Princess was fine with this move, she mentions missing her old friends once in a while, but she is a social butterfly and has already made friends with all her classmates. Hopefully she will continue to be outgoing and social. It will help her adjust easily when we move again in 3 years.
I am not used to being on a Military Base again, its kinda weird and yet very comforting to know that everyone here is military, every child on this base has a parent in the military.
