When I was a young teen, I thought being a teen mom was "cool". I wanted a baby really bad. I am soo lucky now that that didn't happen so soon. I had finally decided that waiting till I was out of college and older would be better for me. Too late. I got pregnant at age 16. I was terrified but I was also happy. My pregnancy was hard for me in the beginning, but got better towards the end. I would have a little baby to play with and cuddle. I would be loved unconditionally. HAHA! Boy was I wrong. Babies also poop, spit up, and cry. A LOT. I love my daughter more then anything and I would give my life for her, but honestly, I was naive. I had no idea how hard this was going to be. Being a mom, regardless of age, is hard, but when your trying to finish school, work, fight against stereotypes, ANd raise a baby, is the hardest thing ever. Did anyone else not realize how hard mamahood was going to be? sometimes i feel alone in this.
