Amber talks about trying to deal with relationship and parenting issues at such a young age.
Poor maci... Ryan is being such an ass... Caitlyn and Tyler are so close... it's so sweet! I really think they did the best thing for there daughter. I wouldn't want my kid growing up in that situation... Farrah, I don't think you're doing anything wrong by dating. and it's clear you spend plenty of time taking care of your daughter. You can be a mom and still date... You are looking for someone for you and your daughter and thats whats important. and Amber... You're a stupid ***** and I feel really bad for you kid... Gary's not any better.
I agree! I'm 23 and I have a 7 month old, and I AM a single mom, no help what so ever from his dad, and I'm doing it on my own, hoping to go to school in the fall, if you try you can do it, stop giving up on your daughter and yourself.
omg i so totally agree wit rondax3. wat r u ppl talking about.? u dont kno wat amber is going thru so u cant say anything. it is not just garys part to have a job. he needs to put in his part and help out amber they r partners in this relationship.having a bby is very hard and they take alot out of yuu. and once there father gets there yuu just want a little help. atleast at work yuu get a break. wen does amber bcuz once leah goes to sleep she needs to do her homework. i dont think yuu should be critisizing her bcuz she is working very hard. and u ppl that say she is lucky to have him around *** r u talking about it isnt luck that hes there it is his resposibility just as much as it is hers. for those of yuu who dont have your bby daddys im sorry bcuz i kno having a child can be very hard to take care of my son isnt that easy either but u have to see it from her piont of view wen u r stressed the f**k out wen ur child is crying and dont kno wat to do it is hard seeing your man come home and do nothing bcuz atleast once he gets home his job is done and he gets money.Babbies.they r 24/7.
Girl,be blessed that he is aroumd. I am a lot older with two boys and their daddy is not around. I finished school and I am currently working on my master's degree. You can finish school.You can do it and take care of that little girl: because you HAVE TO. She deserves the best and as mom, you have to give it to her. You are not a single mom, but if you feel that you are going to be, then you have to put yourself in a position to do so. You are gonna cry and its gonna be hard. But when you have your own money and your own job, you will know that it was worth it. Pray, cry and keep it moving. You are a mom. You have too.
come on amber pick your battles and get some dif or better meds. back of gary, hes no movie star but damn hes around. ive been with my hubby for 11 yrs. prom, college, marriage( 5yrs), and a baby boy ( almost 2). i test drove the car before i took it home to live with......
how is Gary lazy..i think amber wants him to be wonderwoman....but come on..he works to support her..he is doing his part, she should do hers n clean n all that stupid stress she has will go away..she acts like an imature little girl..just because you have a baby DOESNT make you a grown up..
I think that Gary is a very nice patient guy, But very Lazy... Im going thru the same thing with my babys daddy I can relate alot with you Amber....
P.s you're a beautiful and strong chick.... I don't think i could ever just get up and leave like you did. But when I get the balls to do it. I'm taking my baby and flying back to Cali
here is a little something from a single mom..1st of all be lucky with what u have! u have it great compared to some ppl..u make it more difficult then it really is! try losing ur mom a week after u find out ur pregnant..then when ur kid is 7mths old she has to have open heart surgery that u didnt even know she would have to go through that! i do everything on my own! her dad has never been around..most of my family has passed so its just me! things are really hard but dude you have to keep yourself together for your daughter...no i dnt know u but if u put yourself in my shoes you wouldnt have been able to survive! things do get better but u have to be stronger than what u are..just do what u have to do to get through everything but im telling u from mom to mom that u need to focus on whats going on around u and not let petty stuff get to you..
i don't understand how she's always complaining about gary but then again she's always out spending his money!?
You are a beautiful person caught in a bad situation, but it seems you (and Gary) need some counseling. Unlike some of the other moms (such as Maci), you do not seem to find anything to be happy about or grateful for. As an outside observer, it seems you have a list of things to be grateful for: your baby's father stayed with you, he has a job that seems to support the two of you well enough that you do not have to work, you do not seem to need your parent's support as much as the other moms, your baby is beautiful and healthy and she seems to be a relatively easy baby, etc. Maybe making a list of how your life would be without Gary would help. Would it be easier, or harder? Would you miss him and his contributions to the family? How could you make him feel appreciated for his contributions and in turn tell him what you need from him?
Having been in this situation long ago, I can tell you that nobody out there will rescue you but yourself. Sorry, but that's the grownup truth. The other truth is it could be much worse for you; you could be homeless, you could lose custody of your child, etc, etc.
Amber you really should not be waiing for someone to knock on your door and RESCUE YOU! And please dont call your daughter a mess. LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND YOUR DAUGHTER.
I'm 21 and have a 5 year old and an 8 month old, I had my first at 16. Raising children is a lot of stress. But I think Amber needs to chill out a bit. I don't think she is a bad mother Leah is a cute baby and looks well taken care of. I do think Gary ans Amber could benefit in some counseling together. Amber is loud and whiny, but she is not the only problem Gary is very immature.
and of course they all have some growing up to do! they were 16 dumba**es! this is ridiculous to read some of the ignorant things people say.
bashing on people's parenting is the ugliest thing you could do. all you people keep saying she needs to grow up but i think its the other way around. it sounds to me like people are projecting. everyone's situation and relationship is different so stop saying she's a bad mom!!! her daughter looks clean, healthy and happy so i doubt she is doing something wrong.
i totally understand her situation and a lot of people think shes just being a **** but its more than that. Gary thinks its just his role to go to work and the woman stays home with the baby. its the 21st century people! this isn't how it should be. no its not easy being a mom at 16 but it is a lot of stress trying to teach someone else what their roles are as well as everything else!!!
PEOPLE YOU HAVE TO ADMIT GARY DOES HAVE ALOT OF PATIENCE WITH AMBER. SHE COMPLAINS TOO MUCH! SHE WANTS EVERYTHING DONE AT HER PASTE AND THATS NOT HOW THINGS ARE SUPPOSE TO GO .. I TOO BECOME A MOTHER AT 16 AND MOVED TO COMPLETLY DIFFRENT STATE AND HAD TO STAY WITH MY CHILD ALL DAY WHILE MY HUSBAND WENT TO WORK. I NEVER COMPLAINED LIKE AMBER DOES! ATLEAST SHE IS STILL IN HER HOMETOWN NEAR HER FAMILY.SHE SHOULD BE GREATFUL. I TOO AM GOING TO SCHOOL TO GET MY GED AND I NEVER COMPLAIN THAT MY HUSBAND IS NOT AT HOME TO HELP OUT.HE WORKS 12 HOUR DAYS I SHOULDNT NAG HIM.. I NOW HOW TO MANAGE MY TIME AND FIND WAYS TO STUDY. HER JOB IS TO BE A RESPONSIBLE PARENT WHILE GARY PROVIDES FOR HER AND THE BABY. SHE ASK SO MUCH OUT OF HIM.SERIOUSLY AMBER GROW UP.
I'm sorry but you are such a ***** to gary and that dude loves you and puts up with all your nagging and ******** . poor gary :( you shold learn to appriciate him!!
i'm 24 and had a 4 year old and 15 month old. i understand the stress can sometimes be seem like too much but it is all worth it in the end. id do anything for my babies
YEAH RIGHT YOU HAVE IT ALL WRONG NO ONE SHOULD HAVE THEIR BABY TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM IF U HAD ONE AND WERE IN HER POSITION HOW WOULD YOU FEEL :P
