My spouse has not been an officer long, and he just received his permanent position; overnight. It was the shift I was dreading. Our baby is due in July and I am so upset by this news. I imagine me being alone at night with a newborn and no help, not seeing him unless he is sleeping, and worrying about him at night. I worry about him when he has been working day shifts! I know I have to grow a thick skin but this is our first child together and we are so young. I feel like this happened at such a bad time in our lives. People keep telling me that we will get into a routine but how do we lead normal lives? Can anyone relate?
