Black Sheep.

Grr. Is it bedtime yet?

I hate feeling like the black sheep of the family. Yes, I dropped out of college. Yes, I got pregnant at 18 before marriage. Yes, I waited until AFTER I had my baby to get married. No, I didn’t marry someone rich. Yes, I’m 22 years old without a job/career. Yes, I had another baby when we weren’t “ready” at age 21.

I do what I can for my family. What WORKS for my family. And I’m happy. I have a husband who backs me up unconditionally and who loves the crap out of me. I have 2 BEAUTIFUL, healthy children who mean the whole world to me. And THAT’S enough for ME.

We are not rich. And we really aren’t poor. We just can’t afford to do everything we would like to. But my husband works hard for us. And I’m going to begin school (if they don’t screw my paperwork up again) in January to better our future.

All I want to do is buy a house and go to Disneyworld. And get an education. And send my kids to college.

That’s not too much is it? I’m pretty simple. And that’s the way I like it!

Don't let people get you down. I got a lot of crap for getting pregnant at 17, getting married at 18 and becoming a mom at 18, getting pregnant 8 weeks after having my first and being a mom of two at 19. But I also have a college degree - did that before I turned 23 and I am happy with my husband and little family. People want to find anything and everything they can to bitch at you about.

It's annoying but hey- what can you do?! all i can tell you is that you are doing just fine. you dont need all the money in the world. you, D and those kids are happy...thats all that matters. you are doing what you can to make a better life for you and your little ones and thats all you can do as a parent. keep your head up!

Bookie, people like to find things to criticize you about so that you won't see all of their flaws. I know it's hard to move past the hurtful words that people can conjure up, but honestly. You. Are. The. Bomb. I'm serious! Amazing, fabulous, smart (yes, you are), generous, helpful, caring, loving, and above all else you are the best mother to your children anyone could ever be. The. End. -Raven
