I'm always on PEx but discovered this thread just now. I'm not expecting that there is a thread like this but I am happy to find this. I just need bits of advice. Daddies, help me with this please?
I don't know where to start because lot of things are going on my mind, but here we go… I am 21 years old and I am having a baby. I am married with my wife who had been my classmate and girlfriend from HS to college. We got married because we're having a baby. We've been together for 7 years and married for 2 months. I am sure that I want to live with her for the rest of my life so living with her is not really my problem, besides, even before we get married, we were live-in partner. About her pregnancy, for sure it was not unwanted but it was indeed unexpected. My initial reaction is to think about responsibilities to come but later on, we were happy.
Now, my problem is I am an incoming law student. I'm not certain on what to take into consideration but I know that there are lot. In general, it would be parenting and studies. Money is not a problem because my father is wealthy. He'll support me throughout my study and will support my full financial needs I need for parenting. He even gave me a very big house (which I don't where to get its expenses when I become independent) and car. Here comes my second identified problem. I never planned of being dependent when I have my family; in effect, I feel helpless. My father is very kind and never upbraided me for this. In fact, he was happy about it, but nonetheless, I feel like it. (I need advise on this).
About my parenting-studying thing, I still lack of plans because I have no idea on both. Being a first-time parent alone is difficult (I assumed). I plan on studying away from home to at least concentrate on my study but I chose to enroll in immediate law school. I never planned on running away from my responsibilities because surely it wasn't my thing. I still want to be a daddy for my incoming child. I know that it would be very hard but I want to experience this and never want to miss it. I can hire two yayas to take care of my child but that would left me nothing to do. I want to know if there's someone who shared this kind of dilemma. Or at least give me advice. Any kind will do. About my law school, I enrolled full-time because I don't need to work, besides, it will eat my time for both studying and parenting. Help me on this. This certainly is a problem but I am not sure what to ask you. Perhaps, an advice for managing time, parenting--studying.
Please don't get me wrong, I don't regret any of these. I am excited about having a baby and becoming a law student. I just want to prepare myself when worst comes to worst.
Bat di na lang samahan mo yung mag-ina mo para may kalakihan na ama yung anak mo. Di ren makakatulong yung yaya at nanay lang makakasama parati ng baby mo habang lumalaki siya. Kausapin mo erpats mo pati yung magulang ni gf mo para mapayuhan ka kahit paano.
Luck with yer new role in life sir...
I think you sorta skipped the independent phase and moved straight to marriage. I understand you have grand plans. You are lucky to have a very supportive and well-off family. Others here had to go through hell and back just to provide for their kids. This is something you should be very thankful for.
Stating the obvious, you need to face the music. I understand your worries, but really, you just need to man up and make the most of the situation. You have have money, a good family, a house and car, and education. Looks like you got everything set. Ikaw na lang ang kulang.
For what it's worth, when my wife and I were expecting, dun din ako nag worry and I doubted my capabilities to carry a family. We have a small house, a car, stable jobs, a bit of money in the bank, we invested in shares, and we have insurance policies for safety. Pero I really was worried na baka di ko kaya, or baka di ako ang tamang dad and husband... It's weird. I thought I got it figured out. Pero nung time na yun, I had second thoughts about myself.
But you know, my wife and I, we became stronger as a couple, and our families became closer nung lumabas ang anak namin. Tama nga ang sinasabi ng ibang tao, blessing talaga ang magkaanak. Kahit nga yung walang-wala, blessed na blessed talaga pag may bata, ikaw pa kaya na may full support ng pamilya?
parkerfly, brad, sa totoo niyan wala naman talaga right or wrong time para maging tatay. madalas iniisip natin na kailangan may pera kailangan may oras at kung ano ano pa. per oa g toto niyan, pag nandyan na yung respoonsibility, you have to face it. gagawan mo ng paraan. Sa totoo lang maswerte ka at malaki anng financial support din sa yo ng tatay mo. kaya wag mo aksayahin yung mga opportunities na binibigay sayo. wag mo muna pairalin ang pride at this point in time. pero wag ka rin abusado.pero kung gusto mo talaga maging independent. hanap ka ng trabaho but when you do this may mga kailangan ka rin isakripisyo tulad ng law school unless kaya mo ipagsabay.siguro kaya din sinusuportahan ka ng erpats mo dahil gusto niya na walang harang (lalo na kung pera lang naman) sa pangarap mo or niya sa yo na maging aboado ka.
pero sana in all of these, you will also find good emotional support from your wife. malaking bagay din kasi ito and this will keep you going. Goodluck!
baka mapaaga pa yan bro before 29, pray ka na lang for their safety.
Cross fingers at sana matuloy yung pagdating ng replacement yaya ni Travis. At sana ok yung yaya na bago at ma-alagaan ng maayos ang junior ko.
