Bristol Palin: motherhood is hard

Bristol Palin, 18, is back in the news following her candid comments about life with her baby Tripp. Have to give the girl credit, with a mother who bangs on about the importance of abstinence, when asked if she used contraception, Bristol declined to give details. Abstinence, she said, is the best option but "not realistic at all."

Apparently, her boyfriend Levi loves parenthood as well. According to People, "He has been staying at [the Palins' home] a lot with Bristol and helping her out," a pal of Levi's said. "He really likes being a father." Of course he likes being a father. Not having to wake up in the middle of the night, worry about losing the baby weight and dealing with the stigma of being a young mum is a pretty good deal.

Bristol, on the other hand, wants to be an advocate against teen pregnancy. "I'd love to [be] an advocate to prevent teen pregnancy because it's not, like, a situation that you would want to strive for, I guess." Ya think?

As a teen mother (I became pregnant w/ my 1st at 17 and my 2nd at 19) I was so embarassed when I heard Bristol talk. She was so empty and inarticulate. But hey, I guess she'd be the "perfect" advocate *against* teen pregnancy, right? Sheesh.
