All the girls on the show have it tough, but Catelynn’s mom actually works against her!
Who else felt awful for Catelynn during the Aug. 31 episode of Teen Mom? Her up-and-down relationship with boyfriend Tyler has been hard enough for her to deal with, but her mom giving her grief for putting their baby up for adoption adds another layer of unnecessary stress. In my opinion, Catelynn did the right thing putting her baby up for adoption and giving it a better life than it would have had with her and Tyler. Now that Catelynn’s step-dad Butch is heading back to court-ordered rehab, her mom is angrier than ever and she needs to cool it!
Catelynn’s fellow teen moms also had their share of troubles in the latest episode:
Maci made the very difficult decision of moving to Nashville with Bentley to be closer to her new boyfriend Kyle. “In order for us to move forward, we’d have to see what it’s like to live in the same city,” Maci said of her relationship with Kyle on the Teen Mom after-show. And while I’m happy to see Maci in a good relationship, I have to wonder if she’s making too many changes too quickly. Bentley is still really young, so pulling him away from dad Ryan and introducing him to Kyle might just confuse him.
Things aren’t much easier for Amber. She desperately wants to get her GED, but it isn’t easy balancing life as a student AND as a teen mom. And with little to no support from her lazy man, she’s pretty much on her own.
Then there’s Farrah. What can I say about poor Farrah? She’s now totally financially independent… and not doing great. After being scammed out of thousands of dollars, she’s finally starting to understand what it means to be on a budget. She also has to deal with ants in her apartment, which she describes this as “the real life of being a single mom.”
Based on the Aug. 31 episode, I’m giving Catelynn my official “Sad Mom of the Week” award. Let’s hope things turn around for her next week!
