I'm not a really young mamma, but I wanted to stop in and say hi. I had my first a week and a half before I turned 21, but I look
young, I guess. Two years ago (I'm now 28) I was carded trying to buy an R rated movie. when I had my first I got lots of disgusted and sympathic looks. When my sister and I went out walking with him people assumed SHE was the mother...and she's 6 years younger than me!
I've been cornered in public bathrooms asking about the details
: , and the worst thing ever was when my mom and I went to a restaurant and the staff was talking about me very loudly...saying stuff about how I'd probably have to drop out of school now and how they'd hate to have a baby as young as I am
I was better behaved back then so I didn't really say much, but it did a number on my self confidence at the time.
Oh! I forgot about the time when I was at the grocery store with my (at the time) 2yo and 4mo and was getting the 2yo to 'help' with the baby...I was stopped by an older woman who asked ds "aren't you a good boy to help your sister with the baby?". Then dp walked up and she told him he had some good kids here. He had no clue so he just said thanks
But anyway, I applaud you all for being good mamas...regardless of your age
