Hi really young mamas!
Mama2DoubleCuties - I'm an aspiring midwife. I'm hoping to start my course really soon. I just have to buy a few more books!
mommy2twobabes - that is HORRIBLE! Why would someone say something like that? Young moms can be great moms! What a poor angry person.... I'm really sorry.
It's been a while since I posted here, so I'll just give a quick run down!
Got pg just before I turned 16.
: Got married at 16. Had dd @ 16, ds @ 17, ds2 @19 and dd2 @ 21. I'm 23 and have 4 kids. I'm the crunchiest mama I know, but I'm very blessed to have some friends that are moms in their 20's and are pretty AP. I'm sorry that you are all so lonely as far as mama friends go.
I get all sorts of crazy comments. "You don't look old enough to have had all those kids." (well, obviously I am, cause I did!) "Do they all have the same father?" (yes they do - shocking I know!) "Don't you know what causes that?" (yes I do and I LIKE it!!!) When I was pg it was really hard, people can be so nasty and they think other peoples' fertility is their own business.
There are days when I wish we had waited. We could have gotten our schooling out of the way. (DH is going to school and I'm going to be starting.) Most of the time, though, I'm extremely happy to be a really young mama. I really get to enjoy my kids and we do all sorts of crazy fun stuff together. I'm hoping that I'm so close to being a teenager still, I won't forget what it was like for me. Hopefully, things will be better for mine!
Have a wonderful day!
