I'm gonna spend the week telling you about my kid. Why?? Because she's hitting a milestone birthday this Friday and as a parent in todays world who didnt do it "by the book" she came out of it pretty allright. In fact damn good.
I was young, living a great carefree life. 21 years old, commuting to work in NYC from the Jersey Shore as a receptionist in a Wall Street Trading company and bringing home the big bucks (ha!) or so I thought. Brand new car, party every night. Great clothes. My pick of guys (well almost). Life was gooooood! It was the late 80's baby!!!
I was a fairly young mom just 22 when she was born. I really hadnt "grown" up myself yet. My grand party life as I new it came to a Screeeeeeeeeeeeeching halt!! Single, living at home with mom & dad, no more job in the city. Half a bachelors degree with no plans to finish it. And the father wanted nothing to do with either one of us (more about him later...Karma is a bitch). What a drastic change in my life.
I wouldn't change it for the world.
