On of my son's girlfriend's facebook friends has proudly announced that she found out she's going to be a mommy.

She posted this post one day after adding her 'in a relationship' status and before inviting people to her sweet 16.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

I hope that works out better than average for her. That's hard to recover from but it's possible.

I don't know this person at all, and my son's girlfriend only knows her in passing on facebook.

My guess is Paul gets to feeling needy if he skipped his bark & milk at breakfast.

At least as much as you felt the need to respond.

This is a starter S topic.

Was there a question you wanted to ask about it or something? It seems more like a non-starter.

Was she Catholic? Those Catholic girls always act like they don't have sex, but boy when you get them in the sack...

Did she have access to birth control though her parent's health care plan? I bet her parents worked for Hobby Lobby or one of those other companies that refuses to allow their employees to use birth control.

Just thought I'd throw in some R and P to mix it up a bit.

Have your kid tell her congrats on getting the meat stick into the flesh pouch. In 9 months she can start being a little proud, every year after that her child grows and prospers she may increment her pride slightly. As soon as the child is self-supporting she may consider herself to have completed something worth while and count everything past that as 'extra credit'

Most simply said 'congrats'.

There was no 'you idiot' but also no 'that's the greatest thing'.

About what you'd expect. It's a bit late to call her 'you idiot'.

Not something I'm judgmental about, since my family tends to breed early and we've done fine. My daughter had a living great-great-grandmother.

There are two goals in life when raising kids.

Prevent this.

Happens a lot at the high school I teach at. It's interesting to see how the outlook on teen pregnancy has changed. When I went to high school (graduated 1994), teen pregnancy was definitely viewed as a terrible thing; life was over, you screwed up, etc.

Here, it's often viewed or treated as welcome news. The girls get giddy about it, say things like, "Oh, that's wonderful," or "I'm so happy for you!" It's very odd to me. I'm thinking it's a generational thing due in part (I think) to reality TV. To my students, being famous is the one true way to success, nevermind how it happens. These kids would literally eat their own family for a chance for their 15 minutes of fame; it is everything to them. On my student interest survey, I ask what kids want to do for a career; inevitably, several will say "Be famous." No explanation on how, just that: be famous. Each one thinks they will be the next American Idol, rapper, or sports icon. I don't remember being like that.

Thinking on it more, I don't know if it's a regional thing or generational thing. I just know it's alien to how my peers were brought up to believe.

Given that some people are famous for being famous... they must want to make a sex tape.

You've been going to clubs where women are checking their pregnancy dipsticks? What a weird, specialized place that must be.

It's a shame she's keeping it. I wonder how seriously she has considered abortion and how the attitudes of those around her might have influenced that consideration, but of course that's nearly impossible to find out here.

Physically, it's probably at least as healthy as waiting. Emotionally, not so much at least in today's society.

I feel for her parents, they are in for some work (I hope).
