Tori Roloff is not exactly known as an outspoken individual.
From what we gather when we watch Little People, Big World online and when we follow her on social media, Tori is relatively quiet and extremely kind.
Her usual Instagram photos and messages?
They mostly consist of family snapshots such as the one above, along with harmless captions such as the affiliated one below:
"Sun...? At the beach...? In December...? Dream."
But Roloff appears to have finally been pushed too far.
She just took her 634,000 Instagram followers by surprise after sharing a somewhat pointed message (at least by her standards) aimed at critics of parenthood.
Or at least at those who have a misguided notion of what being a parent entails.
Along with the extremely sweet picture below of her husband and son, Tori penned the following speech on Thursday night:
One thing I’ve heard a lot lately on social media, and tv, and even in person has me a little upset... I hear people talking about how “life is over” when you have a kid. I think this is such a lie.
She went on to explain why she objects so strenuously to this notion:
I have found life after having a kid. I’ve found something I can completely pour my soul in to and something that gives me purpose.
I hear people tell others that “ah it’s all over from here”... what is? The fact that I can’t stay out all night partying (that’s cool my bedtime is 9 anyway).
Having a kid is honestly a gift I know i don’t deserve from God. Life isn’t over when you have a kid... it’s only just beginning!
Tori rarely takes such a stance online and she rarely brings up her faith in this sort of manner.
But having a child can change you.
Tori and Zach Roloff welcomed son Jackson Kyle into the world on May 10 and have not been able to stop gushing over him ever since.
"I am so obsessed with every move he makes," Roloff flat out said last week about her first child.
She added at the time:
"His little fingers. His coos. And I can’t even with his gummy two tooth smile. He literally breaks my heart (in a good way) every time he moves."
Jackson has the same gene for dwarfism as his father, but both Tori and Zach have made it clear this won't really have an impact on the way they raise him.
“Whatever he wants to do in life, we’re going to find a way to help him do it. That’s our job in life now," Zach told People Magazine shortly after he became a father.
What a great attitude.
And what a terrific couple.
Tori and Zach are likely as "real" as it gets for a husband and wife featured on reality television.
We completely agree with Tori's take here on parenthood and we continued to wish them good luck and happiness.
