An open letter to Teen Mom’s who think it’s cool:

Dear Teen Mothers,

Okay, so what’s up with this whole teen pregnancy craze? I’m not one to judge, I mean things happen. I understand… But the way that it’s been glamorized in the media lately is just plain weird. 16 and Pregnant? Teen Mom? WTF?? It’s not cool to get pregnant prematurely ladies. I mean you’re a kid for cryin’ out loud! I waited until I was thirty to birth some babies and some days I still don’t know if I was ready for what I signed up for: loss of freedom, and certain luxuries – And let’s not talk about sleep. What the hell is that?

I’m blessed to have a Fiance that supports his family to the death. We don’t have a lot, but we have each other. A lot of you all can’t say the same about your partners. To have a “baby daddy” who is sixteen years of age is psycho. You know girls mature faster than boys. You remember being on the playground running from Jimmy with the booger on his finger? Well at 16, it’s about the same mental capacity. Just trade the booger for a penis.

I hear you all have a new member to welcome to the club. This is an interesting twist – 19 year old Dominican model beauty Rose Cordero has recently announced that she’s been knocked up. Congratulations and a welcome basket are not in order here. Sure, she’s the “it” girl in fashion right now. Her biggest achievement to date has been becoming the first solo “black” model to grace the cover of French Vogue. She’s a millionaire – or at least a “hundred-thousandaire” who I’m sure is more than capable of providing for a child… But can she provide for that child mentally being a child herself? I don’t think so ladies. Be young! Have fun! Live your lives, and wait to have your kids.

Sincerely,

Kesha C of WeGotKidz

    You tell ’em! I was 17 when my first baby was born. And trust me, it was nothing like these tv shows are saying. And at the time, there was no “16 and pregnant” or teen stars glamourizing the experience. And it’s not just difficult dealing with pregnancy and a baby so young. Try being 27 with a 10 year old. Class parties, questions about boys, field day, and a young lady asking questions about when she will start her period. Not easy…

      Man, Lindsey, I can only imagine. Kuddos to you though. You sound like a super cool mom that your daughter is lucky to have. These other chicks on these reality shows don’t really ever seem to get the gravity of their situation. Your job is to raise a functioning, productive little member of society. That mess is hard! lol
