The biggest thing to remember is that YOU ARE AN ADULT and even though you would rather have your parents support, you can manage without thier help if need be.

My parents were NOT involved in my children's lives - they have never babysat willingly (I think they watched my girls once when I absolutely had no choice). It wasn't by my choice but by parents (my mom in particular) told me they were "too busy" to deal with my children.

I know it sounds terrible but that situation made me a stronger person. I was a single mother for a very long time. Today, with this new baby, I feel as if I can take on the world if I need to. I thank my parents (and my life experiences) for that.

Tell you parents and be proud of it! There's nothing they can do but support you in thier own way.

Good luck and let us know how it went!

I love my 3 girls and little boy:

Mom to Jessica - 19 yrs old, Amber - 18 yrs old, Sebastian - 2 months
