    Not My Choice

    I never got pregnant so some of you might not consider me a mom. My little brother is almost 3. I've been watching him since he was 5 weeks old. My mom and stepdad don't pay him any attention. They pay for him, that's it. I am the one who feeds him, bathes him, puts him to bed. I...

    So this i think this is considered an update.

    I had my little bundle of joy and he's gonna be a month soon. I love him so much and I'm so happy he's here. Everybody loves him including my mother, who enjoys playing with him.Now that my son is here I'm so happy and in love. It can be a little tiring, but it's all worth it.
