Are you proud you have your kids?

I am. I'm 22 with a 14 month old and proud to have him. I get all kinds of comments on how I should have waited. It gets on my nerves and actually offends me when people tell me "Well you should have waited to have him but it's too late now." So please tell me, did you get any comments like that?

  • No, but I was 31 when my oldest was born.
    Ive had some who questioned me not having them earlier but I pay them no mind. Their words dont affect my life and its not worth letting them upset or piss me off.

    Oh and yes, Im proud to have my 3 lil guys.

  • I'm pregnant with my first and my SOs family says we should have waited. I'm 20 and this pregnancy wasn't planned so I'm not sure how they expected me to wait on something that happened unexpectedly. It's annoying but I wouldn't take any of it back. It's my life, I'm happy and I am and will be VERY proud to have my daughter.

  • I was 29 when my daughter was born, so I don't get any comments like that either. I am super proud of my beautiful little angel.

  • Yes I'm 24 and not married, but we plan to get married eventually. We have a 5 mon old daughter and when I was pregnant, this bitchy aunt I have told me how disappointed in me she was, how I should've gone to school first, how hard my life is going to be now, etc. And we were at my grandparents' 60th anniversary party so it was no place to tell her off so I just went in a bathroom and cried. That hurt.
    But, she's always like that with everyone, thinks she's better than everyone.
    I love my SO, love my DD, and am extremely proud of her and proud to have her.
    And we just might have 1 more, even before we get married :)

  • I had my son at 20, and I never got any of those comments. But when I have 18-19 yr olds tell me they want a baby, I tell them to think long and hard about it. Not to rush into it. That children are a huge responsibility. I love my son and wouldnt give him up for anything, but sometimes I wish I had waited a few years.

  • When I was pregnant with both of my girls, no one was happy to hear the news but their father and me. At that point I said to hell with what other people thought. My girls are the best things that have ever happened to me and I'll be damned before someone makes me feel badly for having them. As long as you feel happy, don't worry about what others think. Enjoy your son and being a mother. It's the best thing in life.
