No One Believes My Daughter Is Mine!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

 I just had my Daughter, Rhylee Jessa, Sept 17 (she was 6 weeks early, born 3lbs 15.4oz) but people are ALWAYS asking me who's baby and then when I tell them mine I get dirty looks!!! When I was pregnant, I would get dirty looks. Or when I walk around with her and someone sees her move they come RUNNING (literally) over and say OMG I THOUGHT YOU WERE CARRYING A DOLL. Then proceed to ask me questions like 'Are you old enough to have a baby?'  'You look like you are 12, 14, 15, 16...' Like people are really RUDE!! I was even with a friend in a store and a lady comes running over asking my friend all these questions about MY baby, I would answer and then finally my friend goes, 'you have to ask her she is her mom.' The lady goes 'OMG she is YOUR baby??' Like why is it such a shock?? She looks JUST like me...and has my nose (although now she is starting to look a lot like Daddy) Oh and I love the whole you have your baby dressed ALL in pink with a pretty bow and still get asked...'is it a boy or girl??' REALLY?? Rhylee will be 4 months I will post a picture..guess my age :)


****UPDATE*****

So I commented on my post the answer. I will be 30 in April. My Husband and I are actually a day apart (He will be 30 as well) I am also very short, 4ft 10.25in and just 96lbs. It doesn't make me so mad that people think I am really young...it's that they don't think my Daughter is mine. lol


This is when she was 12 days old :D 

Rhylee at almost 4 months old :D

Count your blessings.

Looking younger than your age will become more and more of a thrill as you get older, and you'll be more and more envied for it.

Having a few people misunderstand about your daughter is a small price to pay for that.  Shrug it off.

Not that you should have to, but if it bothers you so much, have you considered a more sophisticated hair style?

I just became a grandmother at 37! I don't look that old myself! I have gotten that for years about my kids! Why does it matter? Our society has a show called Teen mom! I was thinking you were 22 looking but guessed you were about 30 age based on my own history!

Good thing we are raising her

I get that a lot but my favorite thing even is when people confuse my daughter's doll for a small human. I had someone offer to help me because I had my hands full with a preemie...I asked her how she knew my daughter was a preemie and she pointed at the doll as I dropped it in the cart.
