Quoting Mj's Crazy Mama♥:" Not necessarily. I know you're just trying to change her mind, but there isn't anything that I have "missed out on" by being a young parent."
i am a young parent. with a 2 year old and another on the way. like i said. i was in a complete stable relationship. lived together for 3 years, and decided on TTC for a baby when we were both bringing in $1800 per pay period.. we could afford it. i had everything. then one day he broke up with me. because he wasnt happy anymore. turned into a douche. ive contemplated abortion, met with a couple of adoptive families. everything. and not to mention, being single and just turning 21 while being 6months pregnant sucks. if i was not pregnant i could have gone out and enjoyed my night maybe started meeting new people.
i cant travel, i have to ask my kids grandmother if she wants to watch them if i even want to go to disney land for the first time ever, (both girls would be too young for me to be able to enjoy anything) im glad you havent missed out on anything but even though i LOVE my girls, and my first was an oopsie, this one was a TTC baby, and now that im single and have to stay home ALL the time to parent, i realize how much i HAVE missed out while i look at my childless friends facebook pics, and realize how much fun theyre having in college. ive missed out on a smurf ton. and even though i do not regret my kids, i am still a little resentful on how soon my first came, and resentful of this second baby almost completely. (YES I STILL LOVE HER, IM JUST NOT HAPPY WITH WHAT HAS COME WITH THIS PREGNANCY)
