I've found that a lot of police officers tend to marry a certain type of woman. Teachers, social workers, dispatchers, EMTs, etc...
I'm the type of person that likes to do little experiments. I guess it's to keep the brain active, but a college professor once told me (I was his secretary for over 3 years while getting my bachelor's) that I have an "unquenchable thirst for knowledge" which must be why I loved being a teacher before choosing to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM).
I'm certified in secondary history and English education, and caught the teaching bug while student teaching under my old 6th grade teacher. I taught 7th grade Social Studies (and am horrible with geography, so that was a challenge!). My husband (whom will now be known as Fauxhawk or FH for short) also loves history, which first attracted me to him. We're kind of nerds, but at least we still value our personal hygiene and we don't really look the part.
I was able to recognize the police bug FH caught when he became a police officer because I had it happen to me in teaching. I'm keeping my credentials up while I'm a SAHM, but I still miss the teaching atmosphere. I substitute occasionally, but now that I have more children, it's harder to work everything out and still enjoy myself (crazy that a substitute teacher would actually enjoy themselves, eh?!).
I hope this doesn't appear as asking something too personal. I've just noticed while participating in the blogging world of cop wives, I've found some kindred spirits (corny I know, but I LOVE Anne of Green Gables) and am curious what else we have in common and if there's a link between certain types of people that are married in the cop world.
I'm also curious if your officer became an LEO before or after you met. I've known FH for over 9 years now, 5 1/2 of which we've been married and 1 1/2 of those have been as an LEO.
Lots to handle, I know, but it would be SO nice if you could satisy this bit of curiosity for me. I can't wait to see the results!
