So I am 23 and my daughter is 3. Why is that such a bad thing? Yeah so what I got married at 20 and had a baby the same year. Many times people have given me "the look" when they find out my daughter is my daughter and I'm not just babysitting. And there was a time when I was with a friend (who is older) and a mom came up to her and talked to her about a group of moms that get together that have toddlers and do all sorts of stuff and I walked up to my friend just to say hi and the lady had just finished up talking said "hope to see you there" then looked at my daughter and I fake smiled and walked away, fast. And I was part of another group but the moms once again would ask how old my daughter was then ask if shes mine then go "oh I see" then that's the last I'd see of them. I have also had people actually tell me young marriages don't usually work out. I don't understand why me or my daughter should be treated different because of MY age? I'm 23, married, with a child, I have a home, cars and I get to stay home. I'm not on any assistance program or need to be. I just get aggravated with it.
