It's basically the story of my life. Well, sort of.
Derek (my husband) and I met when I had just turned 18. We liked each other a lot, hung out all the time, and then I got pregnant. We didn't really know each other too well, but we fell in love. Can you imagine? My senior class is graduating - without me - and I'm out buying diapers.
It was hard. But sooo worth it. I have a wonderful husband and an awesome son. The movie was so touching; and by touching I mean I was crying like a crazy person. It really captured how people like she and I are forced to grow up, fast. I got the looks and the stares too. I still get them. Sometimes I even get an, "Aww, how nice of you to take out your little brother!". People think I'm 16 or something. Yes, 21 is young to have a 2 year old, but hey - who cares? Hunter is the coolest thing ever. How appropriate that I would watch that right around his birthday (the 17th). I swear too that if he is the only thing I have to show for my time on this earth,
that would be enough.
I'm sorry I've been neglecting you - oh sweet blog o'mine! We are ever so busy with the wee one's birthday and our upcoming Pow-Wow. I of course have been hoarding Pyrex and we're even buying a new (old) couch from Ronn at FUTURES. I will, of course, have much more to say after all these events have come to pass.
So, what are all of you up to?
