“My age doesn’t determine my ability to be a good mother ❤️
I got pregnant and became a mom at 19.
Being a young mom comes with a fair share of challenges and sacrifices.
Just when I was getting used to my woman’s body at 19, my body started changing to create a new life and was no longer my own.
As a young mom I am sacrificing my youth.
A lot of people my age are out at bars, concerts and parties and meeting new people all the time…
Meanwhile I’m home all night and day changing diapers, feeding the baby, potty training, sleep training, etc.
My husband and I didn’t have much “us” time. We got pregnant around 8 months after meeting. Those 8 months were blissful and amazing. Sometimes I wish that we would have had more time with just the two of us.
But despite the things you sacrifice when being a young parent, there are so many amazing things you get to experience.
I’m growing up with my kids as I raise them and everyday I learn from my children as much as they learn from me.
I have learned to be happy and thankful for what I have, to be resourceful, to look forward to the future and what’s in store for my family and I.
I’m glad that motherhood came early for me. It’s worth the sacrifices and challenges to have this extra time with my babies 🥰
So to all the young mommas out there doubting yourself or being told by someone that you can’t be a good mother because you’re too young…
Don’t listen to them. Keep being the amazing momma you are.
I know you’re doing your best. I know it because I was you…and I still am you ❤️”
