From Army son overseas: S***** is doing really well and now has 6 well established teeth, can stand up with the assistance of a table, can crawl at speed and can do assisted pull-ups on the kitchen furniture (showing definite potential for the marines!). My reply: Naahhh! You've got it all wrong! Stands with the help of a table? Crawls from A to B? Sounds like good potential officer material with the Cavalry! Having said that I accept that six teeth is definitely a plus for the Booties! Any other advice for youngsters and how to assess their early learning for a future career in the forces?
