Basic training was over and Philip had been given his new base assignment. This time Shelby was going with him.
Philip put his arms around his wife and looked down at her. “You are pretty quiet. Is something wrong?”
Shelby shook her head. “Just some things on my mind.”
“Anything you want to talk about?”
She nodded and moved away from him to sit down. “We never really talked about kids. Do you want children?”
He sat down beside her thinking about it. “I do. When the time is right.”
She wasn’t sure if he was going to be happy with what she needed to tell him.
Philip saw the look on Shelby’s face and frowned. “What’s wrong?”
Shelby shook her head.
“I know you have something on your mind. Talk to me.”
She looked down at her lap. “I’m pregnant.”
Philip smiled as he thought about what she said.
“I guess the time is right.”
She looked at him to make sure she heard him right.
He kissed her softly. “You will be a great mom.”
“You aren’t upset?”
He shook his head and smiled. “I would never be upset about you having our baby. We could have a hundred babies and I would be happy with every one of them.”
“We are not having that many babies. I am not a sim and this is not a hundred baby challenge.”
