My Kid Has Decided To Join The Coast Guard.

We talked earlier today and he jumped right on it saying, “Mom, I’ve made a decision and I’m not sure how you’re going to feel about it.” He’s going to join next month.

For the record, he’s 25 and has a bachelor’s degree in Marine Science. He’s been unable to find an appropriate job that relates directly to his education, and he’s been applying at companies across the United States.

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it. The word ‘Uneasy’ is coming to mind… He could very well turn this move into a career. My sweet baby is about to take an epic leap.

I told him that I support whatever he chooses for himself so long as it speaks to his heart.

Kids! They do the darndest things.
