….Jared reports to the police academy for the entire week. :::breathes deeply into paper bag:::
He’s running a few last minute errands right now, and then we’re going to spend the rest of the day, just him, Lincoln, and myself.
I knew this day was coming, but it still doesn’t feel “real” yet, if that makes any sense. Tomorrow morning will be tough. Watching him leave bright and early in the morning, and knowing he won’t be home until Friday night. Come to think of it, tonight might be harder. He won’t see Lincoln in the morning, other than to peak at him before he leaves. He’ll be giving Lincoln his extra snuggles and kisses before he goes to bed tonight. That will be hard.
I plan to send Jared a picture of our sweet little Lincoln every day. And Jared also plans to talk to him on the phone every night. I’m going to try to make this as easy as possible for him…because are tough as it’s going to be for myself, I cannot imagine what’s going on in Jared’s head. He has seen Lincoln every day since he’s been born. And to suddenly not see him all week long, for 22 weeks…that’s going to be unimaginably difficult.
Hope you all enjoy your Sunday. Wish us luck with our new adventure!
