As of now, We aren't heading anywhere, we're there. I got my dream of being a mother and feel like it's a shame that I still have to "prove" to anyone that I'm capable of being a good Mother despite my age. Is it so hard to believe that a young, energetic, happy person can make a good parent? Not only do I have the patience and energy for a child, but I was a child myself only a short time ago. This means I can relate to him and somewhat still feel what he will be going through very soon. I have pretty vivid memories of the feelings I got when put in certain situations while growing up. I feel like, if anything, it HELPS my parenting.
I can still laugh at the silly cartoons with him.
I can still run around the yard with him every day.
