Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Unborn for at least another 20 or 30 years?

I think this is really disgusting.  I feel bad for the children.  A 17 yr old mommy to take care of them?  I can see that working out really well.  Sure, I know teen girls who made mistakes & stepped up to the plate to take care of their offspring.  But I have a feeling they are the exceptions to the rule.  So they did all this so their babies would grow up together??  Why didn’t they wait to do it after they were in college?  All getting pregnant at the same time at 21 would still ensure their children were all roughly similar ages.

I have been to numerous baby showers in the last few years for mothers under 20.  All unwed.  Now, I surely am not one to pass judgement on the unwed thing…after all - I was pregnant with Jocelynn before I was married.  But I had steady, full-time employment & reliable childcare.  I also was in a stable relationship…and we had previously discussed our desire to marry…or at least in the near future cement things further with an engagement.  I guess we just didn’t move on quickly enough!

Anywho.  I wonder if the attitude of “well, it’s happened, let’s make the best of it” has slightly skewed the perception of teenage girls that if it happens…no big deal.  Babies are blessings!  (Sorry, but to attend the shower of a 16 yr old girl & hear that…it just doesn’t seem like the child is going to feel all that blessed.)  I attended showers more out of support for the gandmother to be, rather than the mother to be.  They were friends & needed support in a time when they had no idea what to do.  It’s slightly creepy to watch a girl who hasn’t passed her driver’s test oohing & ahhing over onesies & booties.

Gloucester officials question pregnancy ‘pact’
By Patrick Anderson
Staff writer

As news outlets descended on Gloucester yesterday, captivated by discussion about the surge in teen pregnancies at the high school, city officials questioned reports that a formal agreement, or pact, had been made between the students to become pregnant and raise the babies together.

School Superintendent Christopher Farmer said he had never heard the term “pact” from students, parents, teachers or administrators at the high school and planned to investigate whether the agreement was real or a product of the national media.

“I had never heard the term ‘pact’ until Time magazine wrote it,” Farmer said.
“All we knew was that there was a small group of girls who were not disappointed in the idea of being pregnant. I had never heard of any kind of communal effort that girls were trying to get pregnant.”

The idea of a pregnancy pact between students began circulating after Time indirectly quoted Principal Joseph Sullivan as saying half of the expecting students had agreed to have babies and raise them together.

He means me, Silver.  I’m his wife.  He just doesn’t like calling me Crafty like everyone else does, and calling me “the Dragon” keeps him from using my actual name.
