  • Does your spouse stay at home?

    Is your spouse a stay-at-home-mom/dad while you're at work?

    I am relocating my wife and son 600 miles just to get a job that has a generous enough salary to allow my wife to stay at home and raise my children. It's what we both want, but I'm wondering how many other cops' wives are stay at home moms that could be a supportive unit for one another.

        My wife worked for the same city as I do before we had our first child. After she was born the Dept. hired her as a part-time records clerk. She just works opposite my schedule.

                          My wife was a stay at home mom til my boy was ready to go to pre kindergarten. After that she went to work on dayshift and I was on second shift. Now my son is in school full time so I went to graveyard shift so I can be home with both of them in the evening.

                              Does my wife stay at home?

                              I had to laugh when I read that. You ask if my wife stays at home? Are you kidding, she makes regular rounds between Super Target and Super Duper Wall to Wall-Mart and other stores of that ilk. I think Super Target called the house last week wondering why she hadn't been in shopping yet that day. They were worried that maybe she wasn't feeling well.

                              Actually she has a couple of part-time gigs. She drives school bus and she also does contract transcription work for one of the PDs nearby. That actually works out pretty well for her because of the flexibility. They e-mail audio files to her and she transcribes them and emails them back. The city mails her a check twice a month and she gets paid by the page.
