Having a big family means a lot of things to me but one of the things I wasn’t prepared for was the responsibility. I figured it would be all crying babies and hand-me-down clothes but boy, do I wake up in the morning feeling really responsible for feeding 6 other mouths. My wife does a great job here at home holding down the fort but at the end of the day I know it’s up to me to provide for this family in a way that means we’ve got enough to eat and enough things to keep us sustained. For example, the adt security systems at the house? Those were my idea because I just feel a lot of responsibility towards my family being protected at home. I just was raised that as a man I need to do my best to ensure the safety and happiness of my family and that’s still what I strive for each and every day. Who would have guessed that after only a few years I had this much responsibility?
