  • Wow I bet that would be real hard.
    I was a month away from my 21st bday, I felt (at the time but im over it now) that i missed out on that "oh lets go get drunk in a bar its my 21st bday whoohoo free drinks yea" but im very content being a mother and a provider. i dont feel anymore that ive missed out on anything!

  • I was 20 just turned 20 when i found out i was prego. i was working at taco bell and my f**** buddy at the time had quite his job. I was always worried about how i was going to support my handsum son now 1 turning 2 next month. I did the same with my second. i was working at a convenet store ended up on med leave in august had him in nove. the entire time i was on leave i was worried. i would think to my self if i cant support the one i have now what makes me think i can support another one. but we are all doing fine. in december i ended up getting my job back. no health worries with the first but the second had high bp. and i felt like i was a single mom. ive been married to my husband going on 2 years and hes just like one of the kids. lol i guess most men are with or without kids of there own. but it happens and you have to just belive that that things will get brighter. they lways get brighter after they get to the worse.
