How do you describe your military-child? Month of the Military Child Giveaway

There are many words I use to describe a cake: delicious, moist, sweet.  However, if you ask any of my four military-brats they would probably tell you YUMMY!  And seriously what better adjective is out there for food?!

  1. My 13 year old is compassionate, resilient, funny, intelligent , & amazing.

    My 18 month old is sassy, headstrong, adorable, intelligent, and beautiful.

    The word that most describes them though is BLESSINGS.


  2. My 4 year old is a sweet, compassionate, lovable, yet stubborn, beautiful human being. My 7 month old is smart, beautiful and cuddly baby. These are my miracle babies!

  3. Mine...the one word that word describes him is "cake-lover."
    Chocolate, white, and marble: he loves them all.
    Just like people. So if I had to be serious, I would say he is charitable.

    My daughter is more selective and won't eat chocolate.
    But she won't be forgotten, because she is persistent for herself and her "favorites" aka friends.

  4. My 14 year old is intelligent, resilient, ambitious and affectionate.

  5. My 2 year old daughter is resilient, powered by the strength of our Military family, she's stubborn but she's loving.


  6. My 12 year old - creative, caring, smart, beautiful, brave, STRONG
    My 5 year old - energetic, hilarious, sweet, loving, brave, STRONG

    They are truly the LOVES OF MY LIFE and they make me so much more complete.


  7. Although hard to describe my daughter in one word, my 20-month-old can best be described as spunky. :o)


  8. My 6,9, and 11 yr olds are many things it's so hard to just pick one but Inspirations are what I would descirbe them all to be because they inspire me every breatheing moment of my life.


  9. This is kinda hard but
    My 5 year old is sweet
    My 3 year old is hilarious

  10. My 3 year old is smart,dorky,imaginitive,and caring :)


  11. The one word to describe my beautiful, intelligent, and lovely Asperger Teen is "Friendless".

    Being a military child with special needs and huge obstacles to overcome is a very lonely life. All she wants to have is one human friend that understands and cares for her the way God made her. Until then, she is kept company by her puppies and parents.(email sent with contact info)

    1. I have a special needs ("specially abled") beautiful 15 year old daughter in need of a friend. How old is your daughter? We are in Minneapolis. Maybe we could have them exchange letters and pictures? Do you know how we can contact each other outside of this blog? Anxious to hear from you!

    I have 2 military grandkids. Chase is 4. Daelynn is 3.

    Their dad (my son) is active duty Navy. And just got orders to transfer on 1May12.

    The kids are flexible, independent, full of love & on the move most of their lives.

  13. Words can't describe how proud we are of how well they have handled themselves with Dad's deployments. ALL military children are troopers and they have well earned their month in recognition for their sacrifices. Here are a few words that decribe our little ones:


    The list could go on and on... our children teach us so much more than we parents teach them. Thank you for giving back to the little ones left behind to bear such burdens and do it with flying colors too!!

    God Bless,

    Castro-Pena Family (Emailed contact information)

    I would describe my son Anthony as caring and respectful. I just had knee surgery and he was there to wait on me hand and foot always bringing me my Starbucks :)

  25. My 6 yr old daughter is BRAVE

    she has twice been told by classmates in the last three months that he daddy is going to die- she has handled it with such bravery, no tears- just a matter-of-fact attitude of "no, he won't- we pray for God's angels around him"

  30. As a roofer who only knows a few military people with kids the first thing that comes to mind is probably a more disciplined child than others. I got my kid to read the roofing website https://www.bestchoiceroofingservices.com/ because he's interested in what I do at work as a roofer and I bet people in the military have kids who are just as curious. It gives them a chance to learn about order and social hierarchies at complex levels at an earlier age than other kids. This should benefit them for life.

  31. We are experts when it comes to tree bracing and cabling. Our service also covers tree and stump removal, including stump grinding
