Few things alter your life in the way entering motherhood does. Okay, there’s probably nothing that shakes your very being to its core quite like literally growing an entire life inside of your body. Except maybe doing it before you’ve even grown into yourself. A lot has changed in regards to the teen mom stigma (thanks MTV) but it’s still an experience in and of itself.
Now, arguably I am not technically a teen mom. I became pregnant at 19, but I didn’t have Jace until I was 20. As a 20 year old I didn’t feel like a teenager. As a 27 year old… I look back and realize that I was a freaking baby. But hindsight is always 20/20.
