I am sitting and waiting for blood woirk at the lab and their was a family: pregnant girl, 16, her mom 36 and grandma about 55ish.


They cant read English, so i am helping them and they had a ton of questions about the girls ultrasound coming up.


Then the pregnant girl must have realized I was pregnant also and said "OMG, you are like my moms age" "i said "Yes" (I went with the 36 lol!) "Wow, I didnt think you could have babies at that age. Isn't that gross?".


So, I laughed and explained that I am healthy and have excellent medical care.


Went home and told my nanny...who of course was more insulted than I was. She said if that was her in my shoes, she would have said, "Yeah, Im married. My husband has 3 businesses, my kids go to private school......" u get the picture where she was going. Not my style...I just laughed.


Had to share.

TFS your story with us. It's amazing, isn't it?!?!? Seriously. I feel quite badly for her being pregnant at 16 -- and I feel even worse for her baby. It saddens me to hear of situations like that. But you sure handled it well. I like your Nanny's response!

My inside voice would have said "yeah, they let me out of the coffin now and again so the baby can get some sunlight!"


I have a friend who had her first at 15.

OMG you were wayyy nicer than I would have been also. I would have said that what is "gross" and very sad, is a child of 16 having a baby.
