If I were in your situation, I would do what I had to for my children. My children are 6, almost 7, years apart and I wish I would have had them closer together. Raising a family isn't easy no matter how old you are or how close in age your children are. Just do what you have to do. You'll have plenty of time for you once your children are older.

You have had to mature rather early in life with having kids at a young age. All I can advise is to be patient and try to enjoy your kids as much as possible because before you know it they will be all grown up and you will have spent your time juggling so many responsibilities (school, work, your kids, plus any activities you and your kids are involved in). Don't try to get too stressed and don't forget to take a breather once in while. Just be responsible n your decision making (I was 19 once:). The best of luck to you. The bottom line: you are truly blessed to have kids!

Well, its alittle late to decide that now. Your just going to have to work harder to get where you want for you and your kids. It won't be easy but if you put your mind to it anything is possible. My sister is 19 has a 4 3 n one on the way and she has had to grow up alot but her and her kids are happy and well taken care of.
