[QUOTE=nosce;15864347]I don't know, I get the "but you're just a baby yourself!" line a LOT and it doesn't phase me too much these days. I was a super young looking 19 when I was pregnant with my first and it unfortunately coincided with the release of that movie Juno. Now THAT sucked. I heard so much about how I reminded people of That Juno Girl and frankly I was offended.
I hadn't intended to watch the movie but out of sheer curiosity for what people were seeing in me, my husband and I watched it. And I'm sorry, but I do NOT chug Sunny D by the gallon, make up stupid words to call people, and generally act like a child with a fish growing in me. I was a working woman who responsibly took care of my life, granted I wasn't married at the time but I was engaged and had every intention of living with my partner until one of us dies. So to walk into the grocery store and have women smile wistfully at my belly and then scowl as soon as they got to my teen face really hurt. I wanted to wear a shirt that said, "Really, I'm not what you think I am!"
Now. As far as the comments about looking too young or being a baby, I try to keep things in stride. I tell people that when my kids are 20, I'll still be young enough to see the world. I tell people that no matter what, I'll always be my older husband's young wife. I tell people that in 10 years people will be jealous that I look so young. I try to remember all the good things people forget about my just being a baby. And I remember that in the end, it doesn't matter what people think of who I am. It's how I parent my kids that matters.[/QUOTE]
well said... BTW I hated the movie Juno it lacked so much!
