I'm glad I found this thread! I was looking around for one like this! I had Jamie a few weeks after I turned 19. DP is 24. I feel a little weird going out in public with DS, because I assume that people think I'm a poor, single mom (not that that's bad, but I don't want people to think I'm something I'm not) and I look younger than I am. People have told me I look like I'm 15. I live in the south, and relatives have told me that there's more young moms here than up north, where I used to live (is that true?) No one has said anything mean to me yet, though. All positive comments, especially when he's in the sling I feel kinda weird about joining mama groups, though, even though I joined a few local ones. I haven't been to any meetings yet, but that's more of a transportation issue than anything. Anyone want to trade AIM screennames? I'm trying to find some mama friends and it would be great to talk to someone around my age, maybe who even has kids who are older or around the same age as my LO.
