Glad to be Back! If there are any NEW Navy Moms that need or would like some support - I would love to offer it, I may not know everything but surely have been NavyMamaB for long enough time going on 24 years, that I might be able to safely say "been there".
I Remember how it was when I was a new NavyMama - and cried for days - later one when I joined Navy4Moms - I learned from other seasoned NavyMoms that it was Normal to cry. Oh the stories I can share!
Such as - Crying on the shoulder of a woman in fatigues at my son's last promotion, and her telling me " oh that is ok" my dad would cry too. I asked my daughter in law the next day who that woman was that I was crying with next to that pole and she was handing me kleenex? and she said Oh her, that is the Chief of the base! His promotion was at NavySupply Headquarters in Mechanicsburg PA - seriously through all these years, I really really have tried not to embarrass my son with tears!
