  • nope and just wait, in 5 years your going to have a kid knocking on your door saying "Hi Katie's mom! Can she come out to play?"
    Your not you anymore, your a MOM!

  • Guess that would depend on what you consider "Normal"
    Can you survive.. yes.
    Will you be able to do everything you did before - probably not.

    As far as relationships go.. well.. i don't bring a guy into the lives of my kids unless I know we are going to be together for quite awhile. the last guy I dated - I knew him as a friend for 6 months, then we dated for 3-4 months .. and then .. i introduced him to my kids.

  • i believe so i am a new mother at the age of 19 i am what you consider tobe a single parent but with the help of others yes life can still be may not be ableto go out when you want or do all the things you use to do when you were kid free but you began to find new hobbies and new things that interest you ..i know i grow up and once that has been established you no longer desire to do the old things use to interest you ..i know that you are anonymous but i feel that with us being so close in age and we probably have alot of common ground so just email me maybe we can talk one on one oh yeah never introduce your new guys to kids until you really know because people out here these days are crazy..

  • Well I agree with the above poster "it depends on your definition of normal". You cant party or take off at a whim anymore, but you shouldnt stop doing the things that you truely enjoy.
