I am a 19 year mommy of a 18 month old beautiful baby girl. I am always home and I would love to go out with some of my girlfriends the only problem is my mom, she says it not responsible of me and that I'm not putting my daughter first, so I don't even end up going because she makes me feel like this horrible mother. I really don't know what to do, help please!

Just don't tell your mom when you go out. She doesn't need to know your every move.

As long as you have someone responsible and trustworthy to watch your little one, and are home by a reasonable hour, it is not "irresponsible" to go out and have dinner and drinks with your girlfriends a couple of times a month. You just don't want to be going out EVERY weekend, or drinking until you're sloppy and staying out until daybreak. That would make it very hard to get up and actively care for & play with your daughter the next day, and thus would be irresponsible.

Clever that's awesome! My fiancé has no problem with me going out and having some fun he pushes me to do it because he knows I'm always at home with the little one, its just my mom she's the issue

Jarely at only 19, I think this is normal to want to go out with your friends as long as you go out with caution. Going out to eat or to a concert with friends could relax you. A little bit of advice about Mom's they will always put their ten cents in because they love you. Go out to a dinner date and show her your responsible.
