  • Honestly, i would probably think she was the older sister.

    Before my mom died i used to take my little brother and my setpson out with me all the time (of course, i still do, but now my little brother is my son) and they look entirely oppostie. dark hair dark skin dark eyes on one; light skin, light eyes, light hair on the other. about a year apart. and EVERYONE thinks i am the biological mother of both of them. sometimes i get some pretty dirty looks. But of course, i'm older then 15 so ....

  • Unless she is breastfeeding the kid I would think it was a sibling.

  • I wouldn't make any assumptions. I look about 16 (but am 21) so people think all the time that I am either hubby's daughter (he looks 35 but is only 25) or that I am the step-mom.

  • Where I live it is all too common for a 15 year old to have a child, sometimes two. So I would assume she was the mom.

  • i would probably think she was the older sibling or the aunt.. maybe if the baby was younger i would think mom. but that wouldnt be the first thing i thought.

  • I might wonder for a second but if a mother is 15 how would she get anywhere by herself with a child?

  • I don't think anything, it's either the mom or a big sister , either way , it's not my place to place judgement on her, I'm 19 with one 18 month old, I go out shopping a lot with my mom, and they always think my son is my moms son, and are schocked to find out I'm the mom .... oh no, GASP, a teen with a baby.

  • I usually think its a sibling since around here big families are pretty common but teen Mom are not (never seen one here to tell you the truth)

  • At 19, my mom had my last sister. I looked 12. It was unpleasant. I got called lots of names- my sis is mixed, and gorgeous, but men have bad minds. I assume nothing.
