Recently, news broke about the 29 year old man with 21 kids by 11 different women. My first thought was “This can’t be true.” To my disappointment, the story is indeed a true story and one man, 11 women and 21 children are going to suffer severely from this situation. After I shook my head in utter disgust for the 21 innocent lives that will face an unmerciful struggle before them, I thought “What kind of woman would want to be baby momma #3 or, better yet, #11?!” Here are my thoughts on baby momma #11:
1. She is immature. BabyMomma #11 must’ve been extremely young (16-19 years of age) to even consider having sex with a man like Desmond Hatchett. She was probably thrilled by their difference in age and saw it as a measurement of his maturity , i.e. his “manhood”, as opposed to a measurement of his time on earth.
2. She learns the “hard” way. BabyMomma #11 probably doesn’t learn easily from other people’s mistakes. She would prefer to experience things for herself- even if her decision causes her own demise.
3. She thinks she’s “different”. BabyMomma #11 probably believes she can bring something to the table that the other babymommas couldn’t. She believes she is irreplaceable and can change Desmond.
Unfortunately, BabyMomma #11 won’t be the last woman to fall victim to poor-long-term-decision-making in regards to love and relationships. In fact, there are many BabyMomma #11’s walking around right now who are affecting the lives of their unborn children everyday by their decision to choose a man who can’t or won’t provide for his seed. Let’s put an end to foolish decisions right now! Our children are suffering significantly.
