I forgot to add that I'm married and have been for 2 years. I'm going to get my tubes tied after my third child. I don't think I'll regret it.

Hi all! I'm 18 and have two beautiful daughters, Annabel 2 and Bethany 6 months. I am also married to the love of my life.

I am 20, going to college full-time to be a teacher, working part-time, and spending every spare second with my beautiful, hilarious, genius of a 2 year old girl named Peyton. I had her a few months before I turned 18 and I don't regret it at all! She has brought so much meaning to my life and given me the motivation to become a successful adult that I once lacked. Her father and I are still together (living with my parents but trying not to cost them any money) and he works full-time and used to pay for everything so I could be a stay-at-home-mom and is now helping put me through school. I didn't go back to school or get a job until she was 19 months old and it was really hard for me to give up being a stay-at-home-mom but I knew I had to get a degree eventually and time was ticking. I hate the stigma that goes along with being a young mom, because I am the best mom I know. I put her before everything and read all the parenting books and magazines trying to make sure I do what is best for her developmentally. I am still nursing once daily, in the evenings -I have been trying to quit for a while, actually, but she has a serious opinion about the matter and her Dad works during the times that I usually nurse her so I don't really have any support for quitting. I never ever let anyone watch her except for the teachers at her child development center and her Dad and my sister who she loves.
Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy because I hate spending 7 hours a day at school/work when I could be spending that time with Peyton but I try to keep in mind that finishing my education will be better for her in the long run and I make up what we lack in quantity of time with quality time. Sometimes. Sometimes I get really exhausted and run down from school and work, plus I usually have to watch my youngest sister who is only 18 months older than Peyton (wild, I know). I don't mind watching her especially since I live at home but she is a handful and wears me down and then I don't have energy left over to be as invested in the quality time I planned with Peyton as I would like to. I feel somewhat better about it now though, since her Dad has moved in with us. He works a lot but when he doesn't, he showers her with affection and plays games with her and does what I call "Daddy stuff" (and those occasions often correspond with the times that I am particularly pooped) and she still gets her fill of parental time.
I don't know why I typed so much stuff but that's basically it, in a nutshell.
I'm glad they finally have a place for young mommies.
oh ps. I am super depressed that I can't have another baby for a long time... Peyton is getting to be such a big-girl and I'm just getting that baby bug and I know I can't have another one for at least 4 more years but I see all these cute newborn baby clothes on the racks and I get so bummed out....

hey nice to meet you all i am a 21 year old mom of a 9 month old boy

hey kuzamono! My daughter's name is Peyton too. You are the first person I have came across with a daughter named Peyton and spelled the same. How fun:) My daughter is 2 1/2 and a crazy kid. Love her to pieces though. What is your daughter's middle name? My little munchkins middle name is Harlee.
Hey all. This is a good idea for a forum. I just turned 23. I had my daughter when I was 20. I have been with my boyfriend for 7 years. Since our sophomore year in high school. Love him to death. Dont know when we are getting married but that is not very important to us. Its just a piece of paper:) We will love eachother the same, married or not.
Good luck to everyone with your babies! Dont let everyone with negative comments get ya down. I love being a young mother. I hope to have two more kids by the time I am 27. I like the idea that we started young. Wont be too old when my kids graduate high school.
