Kailyn Lowry I’m Essentially A Single Mother Again
“6 years later Javi is deployed so I’m essentially a single mother again,” Lowry wrote. “Nobody ever made me think about what I would do if I’m by myself and I have a sick child in the middle of the night. Obviously, as a mother we figure it out. But, even 24 years old I panicked for a minute when Lincoln started throwing up in the middle of the night and I had Isaac sound asleep in the other room. I had pedialyte or gatorade and I can’t just pick up and leave to get it. I would if I had to… but you get what I mean.”
“I love my kids/being a mom, even when they’re sick and I’m playing mom AND dad,” she continued. “I just wanted to keep the message going for the young viewers of Teen Mom 2 that teen pregnancy is no joke… even into your twenties, make sure you’re ready and have a plan for tough situations like mine last night – Luckily I have (finally) made some friends (who don’t have kids) and didn’t mind running out to the store for me so late.”
“I think if someone spoke to me about these things, not just the general statistics but actual personal experiences, things would be different,” Lowry wrapped with saying. “I obviously wouldn’t change it now, but I’m hoping to make the next girl think about it a little more.”
We applaud Lowry for her candid, open blog.
