Marines and Mommies

A blog I often love to visit,, posted a great comparrison between Mommies and Marines. I have two brothers-in-law that are Marines so I respect the position very much. I have to say though that I think Mommy-hood certainly earns the same respect.

The biggest difference, in my opinion, would be the scars that naturally come with "Mommy boot camp." Stretch marks, c-section scars, not to mention more personal scars, skin blotches, breasts changing shape/size, hair thinning, feet growing, cavities, and countless others. To us Mommies these are our Badges of Honor. Get a room of us together and we are proudly swapping stories.

I think that is why Marines are so notorious for getting tatoos. They were jealous we had one upped them.
