Super Bristol Palin
Super-Bristol: Trig's main caregiver, Tripp's main caregiver, ace student, breast-pumping, two job super-duper teen mom!
She's got her baby brother with her, eight-month-old Trig, and he's a case in point: showed up almost a month premature. He's dressed just like his big sister: jeans and a sweatshirt. Most days, she and Todd are his main caregivers.
Her mom may be governor, but there is no nanny in the Palin house. Bristol gets up – usually twice during the night – to feed Tripp, who sleeps in a hand-me-down crib in her bedroom, and she says she has tapped out at least one school paper with her son crying in the background. She breastfed her baby for a month, pumping milk before class and rushing straight home to feed him. And she worked two part-time jobs to help pay for the diapers and formula her parents otherwise supply.
"If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex. Trust me. Nobody."
Bristol changed her tune since the Greta Van Susteren interview. Around 2:22, she tells Great what it feels like to be a mom:
Abstinence is good, abstinence is not realistic, I love being a mom, it's so rewarding, if they knew... nobody would be having sex.
Make up your mind, Super-Bristol.
