Quoting madeleine:

it really isnt a bad name, but i really hate when people ask if i'm the baby sitter or nanny and then are stunned that i have 2 kids under 3 at age 23 then give me that look like they feel so sorry for me. it stings a little, but because i know i'm a great mom to my boys and doing great taking 18 credits a semester to get through nursing school and doing everything in my power to give my boys and family the best life, it makes me feel a little bit sorry for those small minded people who think young moms cant be successful. young moms rock. period.


I know how you feel i'm 22 and I have 2 kids under 2 and people seem to think they have to give "advice" on how to raise my kids. Its hard to get the looks and comments from people (many family). I hope it gets easier for us all

I haven't been called any names ( at least not to my face), but I get funny looks all the time. My step-kids are 10 and soon to be 9... and I'm 25... and then my son is soon to be 2. All 3 kids look alike, so I get the look that I did something wrong. It drives me CRAZY. I got married at the age of 22, and had my son when I was 23... I hate people who assume with out asking.. not that its anyones business anyway...
