My son left June 25th, I received his "kid in the box" on Thursday. Just waiting for his letter saying his address and PIR date. I talked to his recruiter and got his ship and div number. Thanks for starting this group! I am a former Navy wife, so I am holding on better than expected, but I am starting to feel it hitting me... I have a feeling this week will be my breaking point...Sorry, but I think we all end up there some of us just take a little longer!
I have not received "kid in the box" yet? My son went to boot camp on June 26th. Looking forward to have friends from all of u :O)
Welcome, Dakota's Mom! It is very possible that this is your group, so stay on here until you get confirmation in the form letter! If you happen to be in the next group, we will get you connected!
Good morning all. Looking forward to more ladies finding this group today!
Hello and welcome to Momof4, diannep and MamaB- happy t see you guys here. Also, FTLW- thanks for all the information- I have been reading it and learning so much! Much appreciated.
Too funny, Ellen. You are excused! HAA! Grandpa's fault!
When my son first arrived at his duty station, he was in a pretty bad part of town and realized that he would need a car. Had sold his before he left. His buddy from bootcamp/A School took him to the dealerships. I was in touch with them as they "shopped" around, wanting to make sure they weren't taken advantage of (thank goodness for his buddy who was checking all of the blue book values of the cars on his phone...they got a nice deal on one). So I asked to speak to his buddy...and he started using some colorful language when talking to me too. I heard my son in the background go: Hey, man, you can't talk to Mom like that...she doesnt' like it! The buddy hem hawed around and then said, sorry! I just howled. He told my son that he and his family talk like that all of the time so he didn't know. :-)
So, ladies, let this be a warning. Not all may pick it up, but they are hearing alot of "colorful" language at bootcamp, sometimes being shouted about 1/2 inch from their ear!!! So...give them a little "space" if they normally don't talk that way...but find it hard to "turn it off" when talking to family! :-)
Diannep, Like I said, having a family that finds the Navy it's home doesn't give me any more information or knowledge, it just gives me an excuse for my sometimes slipping sailor speak when out in the public.
My son called me the other day after A School class, he was using his colorful language at times while talking, and his roommate walked in. After a few words I heard his roommate ask him who he was talking to, he said "my mom", his roommates reply was "you talk to your mother like that?". My son just replied to him "my grandpa was a Navy officer", to which his roommate answered "well that answers that." LOL
No, I really don't have a potty mouth, but it does slip once and a while and I, as well as my mother, blame my dad.
I did hear lots of stories though, some of the best ones were when my dad and uncle were together and telling them.
Hi all. First of all, thanks Momof5 for starting this goup. My daughter, Becca, left thursday, June 27th, so I'm assuming she's in this PIR group also. I spoke with her recruiter on Friday and was told she was assigned to Ship 9, Div 266. I have a question, my daughter had asked me before she left if I could send her a pair of contacts for pictures and graduation. Can I and should I send them now?
Didn't realize ellen (another N4Moms veteran) had joined! Hi, ellen! Wow, we know who to come to now with our "Navy" questions since your family has such a wonderful history with the Navy!
