Last night, Brent listened to some excerpts from a speech given by Michelle Obama in the car on the radio. She said something to the affect of, "[Barack's mother] was a single white mother with a black baby, but that didn't stop her from going after her dreams..."
My husband loves children. He loves our children here right now and the idea future children. He's not afraid of having a big family. That said, he doesn't have an agenda to have a big family.
So, when he hears something like the above statement, a red flag goes up. His response? (not verbatim) "Jenna, why do people see children as an obstacle to dreams instead of a dream in and of itself?"
I love this man. He says things to show me that he is happy in this life...with me...with our children. I felt loved just by hearing a bit of his worldview.
