If your a young mom or was a young mom how many times do

people ask you this

" Is that your brother" pause "or your son"

then when you tell them its your child

they say " You look to young. How old are you"

you say your age and

then they say

"Oh yeah thats still young" they say it with a sad tone to there voice.

i smile and node. but seriously like obviously you can see im young

if would it matter my age i already told you hes my


but when people act like that what are thay trying to say just because im young i

care take care of my kid the same way.

maybe i grew up faster then i should have but once i felt my child

kick i felt blessed and my mother instincts kicked in just like a older woman would.

im sorry but im just so tired of hearing this.

The next time someone does this, I would smile and ask them what their age is!

I'm 32, and due to the neighborhood I live in, I still get comments on how young I am. Though more so when I had my son at 23. (The average age in the neighborhood, is currently 49) I only know of a couple of other parents my age, around in the area.

The same thing would happen to me!! I am now 23 n I just had my second baby, during the time that I was pregnant a lady said the exact thing except she didn't know this was my second. When my mom told her I already have a 3 year old (with an exciting voice) the lady went all crazy n tried to lecture me.. As if we need all their negative comments.. We are young but we are blessed with the Beauty of life!
