Two Kids, Two Different Dads
I am a 24 (almost 25) year old woman. I have a full time job with benefits where I have worked for over 6 years now. I am married to my soulmate. I have 2 wonderful and adorable children, ages 6 and almost 3. My daughter has brown hair and brown eyes and my son has blonde hair and blue eyes. 2 opposites in appearance but the one thing that they have in common is their face. It's my face. They have the same facial shape as I do. The other characteristics (other than my daughters ears, she got from me) they have are from their fathers. Yes, I said it right, fatherS. My children have different dads. What's wrong with that?
Well, to me, nothing is wrong with our lives. My ex and I were never married and I got pregnant in High School senior year. I was 18 years old when I gave birth to my beautiful daughter and thought we were in love. Well, we weren't in love and we got a daughter out of it. We have dealt with eachother's relationships and my daughter, also went to court and got custody ordered so that we have some stability in our lives. Those months were a bit rough as we weren't seeing eye to eye but we got through it and we are better after the fact.
My daughter currently has many families, she has my parents side, my husband's parents side, her father's parents side, and her father's fiance's parents side along with all the cousins, aunts, and uncles. (She does great at Christmas, let me tell you!)
But still people sometimes slip when I have two different fathers for my children. I had my son almost 4 years after my daughter. That's alot of time in between. I wasn't rushing all over the place with my pants down getting pregnant every ten months. But the way they see it you would think I did.I made a mistake, or whatever you want to call it the first time, but IF I hadn't my daughter would not be here. I don't make regrets, my life wouldn't be the way it is if I hadn't made past decisions.
You don't need to know their situation. It's none of your business. If you haven't walked in their shoes, you don't know what they have been through.
