The Little Couple

I love 'The Little Couple'.  I first saw Bill Klein and Jen Arnold on TV years ago, when TLC did a special on their wedding.  Now they're into their 4th season on TLC, and I watch every episode like they're old friends of mine.

I think one of the things that inspires me most is Jen's awesome career as a doctor.  Dr. Jen Arnold holds a degree from Johns Hopkins University, focused in pediatrics, specifically the tiny/fragile babies in the neonatal/perinatal stages.  She is also an assistant professor of pediatrics, working at the largest children's hospital in the country, Texas Children's Hospital.  Jen is fearless when it comes to her job!  She is so smart, poised, knowledgeable, and determined.  I think a lot of parents would be surprised to see a doctor who stands less than four feet tall, but she is brilliant!!!

Bill and Jen are a great couple.  They argue, they have their quirks, but they are so incredibly REAL.  With the show, they wanted to show that everyone in life has challenges, but when you watch it's all about how they are so incredibly down-to-earth and just like anyone else.

These days, episodes are showcasing the new house they are building (with specifications that will make it more comfortable for those of shorter stature) and their attempts to conceive via surrogate.  I'm absolutely rooting for them!  I can't wait to see what life has in store for them next.
