I had my first baby at 19. I felt as you did but after a while I realized i wanted to enjoy what others my age were doing. I wasn't a horrible mother but I was growing up at the same time my child was and wish i did some things differently. Babies are very cute and awesome but a HUGE responsibility that can never be compromised. Definitely continue your education, be responsible and ask for help when you need it. You're officially an adult now! Congratulations! I bet he is beautiful!

:) I know you are happy with your son, but don't forget your own dreams. Remember that improving yourself through education, etc will directly affect his future. Good luck to you. :)
