Hi! I think I'm currently the youngest of the group. I'm 21 and have a 4 month old son. I get nearly zero meaningful real life mommy to mommy time (of course I have zunmumajen now!). My parents (I'm living with them while my husband is deployed... what a way to be mistaken for a single mom!) want me to go out and join some random mommy or military wife group. HECK NO! I can't even see eye to eye with my inlaws and I'm related to them. I don't need *more* people telling me to "let him scream" or not hold him so much. Everyone else my age having kids are having 'oops' babies. They're doing the parenting thing because they have to, not because they want to, and it really shows. Speaking of... I'm waiting for my mom's friend's daughter to have her baby. She's 16 and 38 weeks. I hope I can get to her before everyone else does. She's still not sure if she wants to breastfeed but I'm going to spend some time over there after the baby is born to help her out.
(MDC is being weird on my computer, not showing the little cursor thing in the text)
I've invested so much in this girl... She requested cloth diapers at her baby shower and ended up with 4 packs of size 1, one pack of size 2, and one pack of size 5 disposables! I was the nice little friend and bought her 8 BumGenius and 6 size small FuzziBunz. I hope she was able to get some more.
My dad made some comment on how I shouldn't be getting her gifts because she was so young and wasn't married (wtf?!). I don't care that she's young or unmarried. She's having a baby and the baby deserves to have as normal a childhood as possible. People can be so callous to young moms...
Which reminds me, I was asked if my son was my brother the other day!!
