I had my child at 21 years old, and I love her more than anything in the world, but there are times I think I'm missing out on a large part of growing up. My mom didn't have children until she was 30 and she said she wouldn't change a thing because she got everything out of her system before hand... Would you change the age you had children at, especially if your child was unplanned?

Great answer, JamiJay! ;)
My child by far the most important thing in my life. It's more for her sake that I say I missed out because I want to be the best and most mature mom I can be. I think if I would have waited I would have known more
You will be a GREAT mom. You've expressed your love and interest for her, and that shows maturity. It would be nice for young moms to know more, but sometimes older (more mature) moms miss out too because they are set in their ways. ;)
I think if I would have been more responsible, we would have waited until we were at least 25-26. But now that she is here, I wouldn't trade her for the world. It makes things hard at our age, but it's well worth it.
It sounds like things worked out for the best, which is all that matter. Congratulations on your family!
