Walking through the mall I received several glares and stares, which is quite normal for me being young while pushing one baby in a stroller and carrying the other one pretty low on my body. But one look in particular hit a nerve. An older woman gave me a look that could have killed me several times over. Moments like this make me think, “Am I having a REALLY bad hair day, or is she disgusted with the fact that I am a young mom, or both?”
I can easily admit that often I ponder what my life would have been like without being a young mom but often times I get very depressed when exploring my options because although I wouldn’t have to worry as much about financial troubles, I would never have gotten to have that life changing moment of experiencing that feeling of accomplishing the wonderful miracle of bringing a life into the world, a life that will love you and rely on you.
So after the old lady had struck a nerve, I had to so kindly say out loud for everyone walking past to hear “Could you make any more of a nasty look when walking past two young parents that are just trying to take their child on a nice walk through the mall to experience social interaction from the NICE people pf the community?”
I would not have changed my life, as I would not have such a wonderful person to share it with
