I got pregnant with my son when I was 15. Had him at 16. I didn't tell anyone until I was 7 1/2 months pregnant.
I was married (to the same guy) at 18 and we bought a house.
I had my daughter at 20.
At 26 decided I did my best, but he wasn't the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. To this day we are still friends. We both love our kids, but realize we love our kids, not each other.
I met the guy I am with now when I was 26.
He has two kids the same ages as mine.
I am now 30, he is 40. My kids are 14 and 10. His are 14 and 11.
I have never been this content and happy with my life. We will be married sometime soon. We just bought a house together and in the past 4 years have bought 4 cats. Our cats are 4, 4, 10 months and 4 1/2 months. We would love one child together, but it has not happened yet (2 yrs or so or "trying").
I don't have my heart set on another baby. If it happens I will be thrilled, but I refuse to stress over it. We have kids and cats. Most of all we have each other
We love cruising and would have to stop for a while if I got pregnant.
Would I do it different? Yes and no. I would have still had my son, but not
with his father. I never wanted to be divorced but I was way too young at 15 to know what I wanted in life. It was selfish and childish. My kids are well adjusted, smart, and just incredible, caring people. I love them more than I ever thought I could love anyone. I am raising them to be great people and am so proud of who they are becoming. It's just an added bonus that they are "cat people".
Here is a picture of my family....this was taken about two years ago....http://public.fotki.com/bobbie0253/s.../p1010177.html
I wish I had a more current one on the web.
