Top 10 Reasons There's No Mistaking That My Kids Are Military Brats

Top 10 Reasons There's No Mistaking That My Kids Are Military Brats

10)  Big C frequently tells me what time of the day it is in Japan.

9)  Big C proudly dons a high and tight haircut (although with daddy gone, we've let it grow out a little so I'm not looking at his scalp).

8)  Big C had a camouflage-themed birthday party.

7)  Little C often busts out with a "Yes Sir!" when I give her a direct command.

6)  For months after moving to our current location, Big C kept asking me where we're going next.

5)  Big C can explain why his sister was born in Japan but she isn't Japanese.

4)  Big C has his own military uniform.

3)  Both kids can execute a near-perfect salute.

2)  Little C calls every man she sees in uniform Daddy.

1)  Before Big C celebrated his 5th birthday, he had lived in 5 different houses.  By her 2nd birthday, Little C was in her 3rd house.

What tops your list?


  1. We can totally relate to this...lol We went to meet my husband for lunch at the KFC on post and a whole mess of soldiers came in to eat too. My 3 year old goes, "Mommy look at all the daddies."

  2. That's great! They are such funny little things.

  3. This is such a cute post!

  4. Yup. That about sums it up!!! LOL! Little Butt tends to stand in parade rest while watching television. And my goodness, Little Butt is three and in her fourth state, I am not even going to TRY to count houses!!!

    Robbie use to call every guy in an uniform daddy, i Got alot of funny looks at the mall. Now he calls them daddy's Army friends.

  6. Can you come over to my house and teach my daughter to say "Yes Sir!" instead of shouting "NO!" at my commands?!?

  7. Great post,
    1. My son used to be fully offended that the National Anthem was not played in civilian theaters and would say under his voice when the movie started "thats just plain wrong"
    2. This year my sons high school graduation was web-cast to all the moms and dads serving overseas that were missing their childs graduation..
    too many more too mention here..lol

    What a fun post! I don't have any kids, but I look forward to Navy Brats of my own one day!

  9. Love this post. My little ones are still too little to have 10 but I can count a few, like being in a bunch of houses and my 20 month old yells daddy whenever we go on to any military facility, even in a different state :-)

  10. Haha...I've got way to many!

    How about my 7yr old has been to 4 different schools (about to be 5 different schools), and she is only going into the 2nd grade.

    I love your top 10 lists!

  11. Too cute! Oh the joys of being a military family!! :)

    I'm a new follower! I found you through Amber at Goodnight moon! I loved this post! I think military brats are so cute! =)


  14. This list ROCKS! Here's another one - on a recent visit to the eye doctor, my son was asked to read the letters on the chart across the room...instead of saying "A, P, H" he recited, "Alpha, Papa, Hotel..."

    (I almost peed my pants laughing at the look on the CIVILIAN eye doctor's face.)

  15. This is so cute! Of course, cause you wrote it.


Drop me a line...
