I haven’t really ever posted anything about my life on this blog, but I figured it would be a good idea to write my story somewhere. And that maybe someone I don’t know may come across it and learn something. Or just know that they’re not alone in this situation.
The handsome baby you see above is my son Robbie, who is coming in about 9 weeks! I’m equally excited and nervous, as my girlfriend and I don’t live together yet, and I’m still a full-time college student as a music major (2 more years). Robbie was definitely a surprise for the both of us, and I’m slowly realizing what being in school with a part-time job, not living together, and having a son will be like. It will be in-fucking-sane.
I will come home from school, take care of my son, do homework, practice, and go to a job. Right now I work as a summer camp counselor, but I’m looking for a second job to get before the school year starts. I will have financial aid for the first semester so I won’t be bad money wise to start, but saving will be priority number 1.
I guess right now I’m looking at how I’m going to have to manage my life around this baby, because I’m going to be a first-time dad. This will all be new and I have no idea how to do any of it. I don’t know how to swaddle a baby, or anything.
All the uncertainty is coming my way and I don’t know how it’s going to work out. All I know is that I will have a baby boy to provide for and raise to be the best person that he can be. I can only hope everything’s going to work out perfect, but that’s not life. I will post more as the baby due date gets closer, but for now the only thing I can do is wait. It will be a long 9 weeks!
