I've been living with my parents since I was about 5 months pregnant, before that I had been away at school. I got pregnant a couple weeks before I turned 19 and am now 20. I have a part time job making ok money and only get a check every other week. Every check I tell myself I'm going to save so and so much money, but every time something comes up and before I know it all my money is gone. I need to get out of my parents house and get my own apt as soon as possible. Dont get me wrong I obviously love my parents and wouldn't be able to do anything without them, but they're so nit picky about everything I do when it comes to my daughter, especially my mom. For example, my daughter can't sleep without a pacifier and its the only time she has/needs one. I brought her into my living room right after she had a nap, the pacifier was still in her mouth, and my mom was like what is that thing doing in her mouth, she doesn't need that, take it out.
I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. I can't get an apt until I get a car and my daughter into day care. Can't do either of those till I finish paying my parents back $900. When I do eventually get my daughter into day care, I'm most likely going to have to get a second job just to pay for it. Sorry this is so long and I feel like what I'm saying sounds like I'm just making up excuses, I'm really not! Just curious if anyone else is in a situation like mine....
