From the mouths of military babes....

Mommy, we are getting deployed.

Honey, what do you mean? you know what deployed means?

Yes, it's when daddy goes away.

That's right, when daddy goes away for work, just like other members of the military do, he is deploying.

OK, well, since we are going somewhere this weekend, we are going away this weekend deploying.

For the record, we have no plans to go anywhere. Additionally, I don't know if I'd call a family vacation or trip a deployment. Of course, it often does require extensive preparation and strategic planning as well as packing, reconnaissance for sustenance and studying of a map for logistical purposes. Perhaps, it could count as a deployment after all. I wonder if we could start claiming per diem and mileage for a weekend jaunt to the coast?
