'Teen Mom 2' recap: A Change Will Do You Good

As 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom have shown us, one of the biggest problems facing these girls is the difficulty in acknowledging their new lives. Partying? Friends? The luxury of doing whatever, whenever? Those things are sacrificed when they bring a child into this world at their age. I’m used to screaming at the TV whenever they make selfish decision, but last night, we saw all four girls do what was best for their child, not just what was best for them. Kudos, girls!

But even though she talked about dropping Adam if he so much as spouted one negative thing about her or their baby, Chelsea was in her happy place.

And he changed her diaper -- eight times! Um, Adam, you’re a parent. That’s what you’re supposed to do. No prizes will be doled out for this one. But sadly for Chelsea, it put her back in googly-eyed territory -- seemingly for good. Read More...
