Don't Break Our Faith - #KeepYourPromise

MOAASheild2.jpgGuys, this effects you directly.  If you're a little unsure of just exactly what's happening and what this is all about, please visit this cool new page from MOAA (Military Officers Association of America).  They do a great job of laying out the issue, why we should care, and they also make it very simple to help the cause of defending your benefits.  Today's "small cuts" to our retirement COLA will effect every one of your families in the future.  But what's most important is that these cuts represent a breach of contract, a breach of faith, and a broken promise our government made to each and everyone of our families.  Please don't just do nothing, help the cause and join the fight.

SAHD Life: Doing My Daughter's Hair for School

doing hair for school

As a male military spouse and Stay-At-Home-Dad (SAHD), learning to properly care for my daughter's hair has been a challenging and rewarding experience.

Doing my hair is simple. I've been cutting my own hair since my Air Force Academy days. I don't waste time worrying about my hair style anymore, I just shave it all off. I cut as low as my shears will allow me to and then I use my Norelco face shaver to shave the sides and back of my head. My haircuts are free and done in 15 minutes, but I could not imagine being able to perfect doing my daughter's hair in the same amount of time.

The big question for me used to be, "How do I do this?" How do I quickly do my daughter's hair in a way that looks nice and still allows me to get her to school on time?
