On TV, some of these teen moms just drop their children off at their parents' house, so they can go out and be "normal teens," but that's not the case with this young mom. She knows she doesn't have a normal teen life anymore, and she is OK with that.
"I think about it every day and wonder what life would be like without [my kids], but now I can't see it," she said.
The only childcare she has is from her aunt, who is her legal guardian and who owns a daycare. Her sons spend the mornings there until she comes home from school and returns to her role as a mother.
"I had support from my family, but I didn't take it," she said. "My children, my responsibility."
Surprisingly, given the circumstances, she has contact with both of the fathers. "I do talk to them, actually," she said. "They get [the boys] every other week/weekend. They take good care of them.
"We have some communication problems like every other teen couple," she admitted. "We try."
When it comes to communicating with her children about their fathers and how they were born, the teen plans to be honest with her sons, even though she said it will be a difficult thing to explain.
"If they ever ask about how they got here or why they aren't that many years apart, I'll tell them the truth. I don't believe in lying to them," she said.
"They have the right to know, but how they react is something I just can't imagine," she added. "I couldn't imagine the heartbreak if I decided not to tell them and they found out the hard way. I love them too much to keep it from them."
When asked if she regretted anything after looking back on her decisions, the teen said, "Not a darn thing! I love my kids, and I wouldn't think of them as being a burden in my life.
"Unlike how most parents treat their kids, mine won't be spoiled. They have everything they need. They will learn to appreciate the gift of life I gave them and accept that it's the specialist gift ever received."
