What do you think of me?

Im 17. I have twin daughter, Gracilyn and Raelyn, 4 months old. I am NOT with their father. I work, I have my own apartment and I got to college.

I do not drink or smoke. I don't have sex anymore. I stay at home and take care of my daughters. I only go hand with friends when my daughters are with their father, but my phone is always close by because Im over pretective.

Again, I do this all by myself.

What do YOU think of me?

  • I think you are awesome for putting your babies first. I also am jealous that you will be so young when your kids are grown! That leaves a whole lifetime!

  • sounds like you know what you're doing, but remember to accept help when you can, I am the mother of 9 year old twins and no matter if your 17 like you are or 27 like i was having twins is hard- not saying singletons are easy, but twins tire you out twice as fast. Make sure to take care of yourself so you can keep taking good care of your babies!

  • I think you sound like a great mom, I think it is wonderful that you have your priorities in check. Make sure, if you haven't already, you fill out FAFSA, it is government aid for school, and you will prob get more then it costs to go to school and buy your books.
