Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes... | The Momma Diaries

Major changes are in the works for our household...

Jared got offered a new job! Which is very exciting, & scary all at the same time. He recently got offered the position of a police officer for a town nearby. He just has to finish a few of the required testing procedures, and then he'll be off to the police academy. That is the scary part...the academy. He will be gone for almost 6 entire months. He can come home on the weekends, but he has to stay there during the week. I am not going to lie, it's going to be hard, very hard. I think it will be even more difficult because I am 2 1/2 hours away from my family...& live right next to my inlaws. I think I will definitely be making the trek home to Rhode Island a lot more frequently during the week, for my own sanity especially!

This is a great opportunity for our family. The academy will be hard, but in the long run, it will be worth it. It's going to be so difficult for Jared to be away from Lincoln during the week. I promised him I'd text him a picture of his little buddy every day. I know it's not the same as seeing them, how can it be?! ...but it at least will keep him connected in some way.

Because this is rapidly approaching, we have been trying to spend some extra quality family time whenever we have a spare moment. Although the academy will be hard, I want Jared to know I fully support him, and that I can do this. I will keep you all updated on the process.

I cannot just leave a post without a picture of my sweet Lincoln, so here is one that was taken a couple nights ago with his Daddy...

How did I get so lucky to have these boys in my life :)


  1. Congrats to Jared!!!! It will be a hard transition, but, as you worth it!

  2. Congrats! I don't know how I'd deal with that, but I'm sure y'all will make it work!

  7. I know what you're going through. I"m a military wife so I've done deployments. My hubby is currently away for 5 mos of training. He can come home some weekends but not all of them. And I have three kids ages 8, 6 and 3, and my parents are 8 hours away. So it'll be tough, but just be grateful your family is that close! Congrats on the new opportunities!
