A friend that I have on Facebook is 18. Her and her husband just had their first baby. They go out to the bar every other night. Her husband is not employed. They constantly pawn their son off on family or friends, just so they can sit home and do nothing. She just posted that picture on her page not that long ago...

Like really? You do not have the right to claim that title. I, on the other hand, do. My son is 7 months, almost 8 months, old. I have not been away from him for more than 5 minutes of his life. I don't pawn him off on people. I don't go out drinking every other night. I do almost everything myself. My SO (his father) pays for his diapers, wipes, etc.

My friend constantly compares me to her. I finally had to break her down. Hasn't happened for a long time. lol

Why is she going out to a bar if she's 18 let alone a mother?

That doesn't mean it's legal that she can do this. It just means she's being give a pass because she's with an adult of legal age.

Quoting ShanesMommy2012:

 No fake ID. She's married to a 24 year old. She can legally drink as long as he's with her at the bar.

Quoting Lizardannie1966:

Fake IDs still floating around out there, huh? 18 and can get into a bar?

While they go to the bar a little too much, IMO, that doesn't really mean she's a bad Mom.

Stop making the comparisons.

Do yourself a favor and don't compare your life to hers. You have years ahead of you where people will silently compare your child to theirs.

Different country?

Or do I really need to get my head out of the sand and realize that 21 is not the required legal age everywhere in the US?

Quoting TSNDDY:

18s the legal drinking age here... She might be somewhere like that?

Comparing yourself to your crappy friend just so you could say you're better is so stupid and childish. Grow up. If you are the better mom then you wouldn't even give a damn about comparison.

 Being a mother doesn't mean you can't go out and have a drink or go to bars.
