FancyPants is my Favourite

FancyPants of On Living Overseas played along in yesterday's meme and she cracked me up in doing so. Her wise Wednesday Words of Advice were the following:

If you teach your children the proper names for their private parts- be prepared for embarrassment.
Click HERE to read the story that explains how she came to this understanding.

I have 'known' FancyPants for quite some time now. The online community is pretty incredible when you can tap into like-minded people that can entertain you at the same time. I was fortunate enough to land myself in an online book group 8 years ago, as a way to talk to other grown-ups who shared my interest in reading, as I was on my maternity leave with Jake. A group of 20-something women, all from different parts of North America, all from different walks of life, formed an instant friendship that is still going strong eight years later. FancyPants introduced me to what it was like to be in a military family. She is a navy wife, raising two young children and doing a damn good job of it too. I admire her strength and her sense of humour through all of her trials and tribulations while holding the fort when her husband is at sea. She recently moved to Japan and is adjusting to life in a foreign country and not only making the most of the situation, but immersing herself in the culture to soak up all that she can from the experience.

FancyPants is fairly new at this blogging thing, but I'm doing my best to encourage her to keep at it because I do so enjoy getting glimpses of her life. Help me out, will ya? Show her some love. Visit her and leave a comment, not only to help with her homesickness, but also to let her know that she's doing a great job.

My favourite post from her blog: What It Means to Be a Navy Wife

And all this time I have thought that "Stretch Armstrong" was the proper name for a penis! LOL!
