Much better way to say thanks. Definitely.

This was lovely. Even with the barf bits and the other disgusting stuff you talked about. :)

Marcy summed up my sentiments perfectly! Although, had that been me, I would have been too busy retching in the nearest trash can to even notice the soldier. The smell alone of the sick kid in the car would have done me in!

This was a fine way to say "thank you" and more sanitary.


I can't decide if this post was meant to be heartfelt or hysterical! Both I guess.

I have never once shaken a soldier's hand and said, "Thank you." How awful of me.

I have, however, had several barfy experiences with children like this. Or an oops Diego peed his pants in the car and I'm trying to change him in the back seat of a Coco's parking lot experience.

The fact that you even remembered seeing a soldier in the middle of your own personal battlefield is nothing short of amazing, but the fact that you feel bad for not acknowledging him is nothing short of wonderful.

The Glamorous Life

I am sure he was happy to fight for your daughter's right to throw up in a free country.

And I am also sure he immensely appreciates you NOT SHAKING HIS HAND. Talk about germ warfare. Whose side are you on anyway?



Aww...not fare to make me laugh and sigh at the same time!

Shade and Sweetwater,
K (who, along with her son, thanks soldiers, police officers, fire fighters for their service whenever she can...which is never often enough)
