Jealous?

Does anyone ever see they're young friends out having a blast with no kids in tow and get a Lil jealous. Don't get me wrong I would never change the fact that I have my kids. I love them with my whole heart and soul. They are blessings. I just feel like I missed my childhood crazy twentys. And that makes me feel guilty sometimes

No, I love my life. I did feel jealous and resentful towards my son for a little while, but I think that is normal, I was 13 when I had him, so I missed a lot of things and struggled to grow up while raising a child. Now, I pity most of the teens who party. I'm 25, married almost 7 years, with a career I love. I'm financially very comfortable and I have amazing children. But, they are also older, 11, 14, 15, and 16, so dh and I can go out and they aren't as demanding as babies.

Well I wouldn't say jealous I just feel like I am on a different level from my friends... I only wish I had waited to get married n have baby when I feel overwhelmed, mad, or stressed out! But I just can't see my life without my dh or baby no matter how hard things get:)

Well I'm going to say no b/c even though I have kids I can still have fun just like they do except in a classy manner my friends are mostly hardcore partiers and I din't want my child around that so If I wanna go out and have fun I call my mom to babysit and have fun with my friends I'm in college with

No. I was never a party girl and never will be. I was always more down to earth and wanted to settle down with a nice guy and have kids. I love being a wife and mother. =)

I never really partied either but on days where I'm stressed or my ex husband is just getting under my skin I guess I just feel very old lol even though I'm not. Like I said I wouldn't change it for anything. And I love my boys. I just feel older than I am I guess

Sometimes. I had my first when i was just barely 20. I never really got to experience being single or unbound. But then i look at my friends 8 years later and they are still in that same life style and the jealousy quickly fades. Luckily my family baby sits often so if we get a wild hair we can go out. :-)

 Aww, I'm sorry.  I think every mother goes through this at some point.
