Hi I'm 21 years old and I have 2 children. I am some what like mommyof4. I got pregnant with my son when I was 17. I thought it would be okay because I had been with his dad since I was 14. I was wrong. Shortly after my son was born I left his dad because he wouldn't settle down. At first it was great. New baby, tiny everything, and lots of attention. By the time he was about 4 months I started going out with friends and working all the time. My mom babysat him all the time. It turned into an every day thing. Although I love my son and I never denied him I wasn't there for him.

I had my daughter when I was 20. She is 4 months now. We live back at home with my parents and she adores me. I work full time and I'm trying to go to college part time. I don't see any friends. I don't go out. My life revolves around my children and work and school. Even though I wouldn't give them up for the world I still wish I would've waited.

As for my son: We have a very strong bond now. He'll be 3 in February. I will never get back the time I missed with him and he will probably always favor my mom over me but that's something I'm dealing with.

It is very hard raising children. Especially when you're young. My advice to any teenager wanting a baby would be to wait. For your sake and the babies. Live your life now, go out and have fun, babies will come don't worry, when you're good and ready.
