erinysdaughter: hello hello

I was wondering if it would be okay to have introductory posts in here. Like...My name is Sherri, and I am a single mom. I have been married twice, but they were jerks. I have 3 children, aged 18, 14, and 12. And it's been hard, sure, but I love them to death. Currently I am gong to school for psychology and writing. My passion is writing, but I also want to work as counselor for troubled kids or women in abusive relationships.

I live in Wisconsin, and have one dog and two hamsters, and we recently added a stray kitten to our group. I love to garden, and my hobbies, besides writing whenever I can, are collecting things, and drawing. Mostly I collect books. Murder mysteries, and lots of other stuff. Agatha Christie and Tami Hoag are my favorites.

So what about you others?

erinysdaughter: too much mommy

My 14 year old daughter is pregnant...3 months now.  It's been an amazing ride since the day we found out. But mostly I have to keep my emotions in check in order to head off everybody elses.Lots to decide now...to keep the baby, or not. She wants to keep the baby, and so does the babies father, but they are so young, and I am not convinced they are making the decision in the best interests of everyone. I've enrolled Amanda in a teen pregnant/parent program at her school. It teaches the class work, but also lamaze classes, nutrition, how to care for babies, etc. Amanda is still bringing home A schoolwork. But being pregnant is the easy part, as we all know too well.
The school has offered the use of a computerized baby. It looks and acts just like a real infant, and everything is recorded electronically by a chip in the baby which lets you know how well you responded to all the babies needs and noises. I think her and the baby's father should try this thing out for a week.
I am so stressed over it all. I worry I am going to be stuck with all the responsibility. My daughter's dad isn't even paying child support for her, and now we have to try and take care of another one? And I honestly do not see the babiy's father as sticking around too long once the baby is here. I hope he proves me wrong. And Amanda is staying in school. She needs her education, and she will graduate when she is supposed to.
So that leaves it all on me....and I am so stressed about it all. I do not need this in my life right now. I can barely take care of myself right now...I get disability for mental disorders. Financially we are always scraping by.  I just don't know how we are going to make this work.. And of course i feel guilty, because this poor baby didn't ask for all this either.
I could ramble on and on, but I am exhausted. I guess I just put this out there to hear if anyone else has been through this, or knows someone.
I didn't put it behind a cut cuz I wasn't sure. If you think I should, just say so and I'll make sure I do next time. ^^

erinysdaughter: hello?

Woot! I'll start....and if no one else joins, I'll talk to myself for a while. I am a single mom...I have been a single mom my whole life, though i was married for about 2 years in there somewhere. I have 3 kids. My first I gave birth to at teh age of 18. My second came along, by a different guy, 4 years later. After her dad and I broke up, I met my next boyfriend, and had my youngest 3 years later. I have been single ever since.
I am 36 years old, and I go to school fulltime at the local private college. I am majoring in psychology and writing. i write for the newspaper as well. I love it!!I also work part time at my youngest son's school (he's 11 now). I want to make a purpose with my life...use my experiences to help others. Especially kids and abused women.
I enjoy so many things, it's almost impossible to mention them all. I like reading, writing, gardening, movies, going out, pizza, pepsi, pets, kids.....too much to list.
Well...I hope someone else decided they would like to join. I think i'll go promote this place....*runs off to promote*
O_O  I'm gonna make banners and stuff. That would be fun!
