<blockquote><b>Quoting Betty26:</b>" The whole time I was pregnant, people would look at my stomach, then my left hand, and then my stomach ... [snip!] ... I know its a trivial thing to worry about but I would like to go to walmart with my child without someone looking at me nasty. "</blockquote>
Kindness kills. Smile at them and say hi or ask how they are.
Quoting ~Sara:". That was completely uncalled for for that interviewer to say that! I would have went OFF!"
I should have, but I just left. And then cried to whole way home. Doesn't matter what age I am. I am a damn good mom.
Quoting Traci Powell:" I'm 23 and pregnant with #2 and dd is 5 1/2 ppl.are always like "aww you're so.young" yep I am but it beats the hell outta having children.in school when I'm old-imo"
Lol, that's one way to look at it - haha.
When my oldest graduates i'll be 37.
When my youngest graduates i'll be 39.
When the little bean graduates i'll be 41.
Then when i'm 43 & DH is 44 he gets 6 weeks paid vacation! (Yes, i've already pondered this.. lol)
If i get it I really don't care. People usually think I'm younger than I am (I'm 22 and had her at 20) so I prob. look like a teen mom but I don't care, I know I'm 22 and proud to be a young mom. I remember this one time this lady was like "Oh my gosh! You're a baby yourself!" Haha oh well she's just ignorant.
It happens rarely, mostly people just smile at us and say how cute/beautiful she is or something like that. :)
I get them all the time. I had my son at 20 and I'm 22 and just had my daughter. People always ask how old I am and think im still in high school. I get worse looks tho when they realize I'm not married. That honestly pisses me off more is when people automatically assume I'm married. I just don't even correct people anymore when they talk about my "husband" lol
i'm 21 and SO is 28, so far no one has given me a dirty look that i've seen but everyone in this town has children either before or during highschool. I did get told "wow, you guys look so young" from a lady who was talking about how cute our daughter is. People thought we were getting married just because i got pregnant, but i got pregnant 5 months after we got engaged so anyone who does math would know that we didn't. And even if we did, it's not their business, it's my life. You just have to learn to shrug it off.
people are rude! ive always had people tell me i look younger than my am. once me and SO were at the grocery store with our daughter and the cashier went off on him telling him he is a craddle robber and how discusted she was that such a young girl was having children. Im 20 and SO is 21 and we have been married for 2 years. We made sure to give her the correct information. she was extremly embaressed.
I had my first son at 17 years old. & the looks I got were horrible but I didn't give a f**k. Now I'm 21 with two kids. my youngest is 3 months and my oldest is 4 1/2 years old. Yes people make rude comments to each other when they see me with two children. I just don't give a crap. Me & my fiance are happy & so are our son's that is all that matters. :) Do not let others make you feel like your to young to be a parent.
I was 21 when I got pregnant with my second. The doctor looked at me and said "so you are 21 and having a child?---and you are probably just having a m/c you are to early to tell if you are actually pregnant" .... I almost knocked her out honestly---I was going to write a letter of complaint for the way she treated me, I had to switch doctors and he actually informed me that she was acting very unprofessional. But I just left it alone and went on with my day. People judge---they will say what they want. The best thing to do is to just ignore them.
Im 25 and I still get those looks and comments. Even when I was pregnant with my youngest... and then a 4 year old calling me mommy. Some people are so damn rude. A few people have come up to me and told me that I have started young. I told them no.. and that I started when I was 19. and their eyes are in :shock: when I tell them that.
I dont tote aroudn 2 kids so I think it is good. lol.
