The 12 Stages of Deployment

Apparently, our deep and abiding love for military mamas is well known. Because two weeks ago, a very nice lady sent us this link and told us that her friend had made it and asked us to watch it.

We did and immediately started stalking them both until they agreed to let us post it here. The gorgeous mama you see below told us to post away and we're thrilled to do so. Here's a little about our friend Mary Clarity (is that an awesome name or what?):

"Hi! My name is Mary Clarity. My husband has been deployed for 6.5 months (but who is counting!?) and we have 2 children, one who was born recently. Deployments are not fun but I love the chance to reconnect with girlfriends, let my leg hair grow out to a luxurious pelt, shop guiltfree at Nordstrom (though the 2 kids does mean that it only happens once a year!), reassign man-knick-knacks to the garage, eat chocolate, compose Christmas songs and then sing them badly and post them on public forums. Can I hear an Amen?"

AMEN.

So to every mom whose husband is deployed this Christmas - Thank you, rock on with your bad selves and this one's for you with our love and gratitude.



Here are the lyrics...
In the first stage of deployment, my true love said to me..
I miss you and you miss me
In the second stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Chocolate's not a food group (it is when you're deployed)
In the third stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Buy something pretty (don't have to ask me twice)
In the forth stage of deployment my true love said to me...
I think we've been extended
In the fifth stage of deployment I called up my true love...
I just had your baby!
In the sixth stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Don't believe the president (not because he's a liar, but what he said doesn't apply to us, for reasons we can't explain, because of operational security, but if you guess please don't say anything, because you'll get me in trouble)
In the seventh stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Wine's not a food group either (my food pyramid disagrees with you)
In the eighth stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Stop spending money! (Just try and stop me)
In the ninth stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Are you renovating? (I always do when you are gone)
In the tenth stage of deployment my true love said to me...
Where are my model airplanes? (packed up in the garage, where they should be)
In the eleventh stage of deployment my true love said to me...
You should shave your legs now (ha ha ha ha ha)
In the twelfth stage of deployment... if ever that day comes...
Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir? (Yes please)

xo, Kate & Lydia
