Being serious here, my wife wants to have a baby. I do to, but im scared. Scared im going to **** up. Any advice. Just something thats been eating at me for a while... Help please.
We are both about to be 24, and my prime years? I dont think has happened yet, I have had a normal routine for the past couple years, granted things have changed got married built a house, I drink a couple beers but for the most part on spending im very conservative, I try to treat my money like its my last. It seems like a child is a lot of peoples reasoning to have a better drive like you just said, Ive talked to my dad a few times and he said I was his drive to strive. But why im scared, Im scared that I want be able to provide like I should as a father, I want my child to have all the things I didnt and more.What exactly are you scared of ****ing up? How old are you and your wife? You'll be having your first kid. There are tons of things you will **** up, but they will still love you unconditionally.
As far as age and "throwing your prime years away", take that with a grain of salt. My son helped push my wife and I to complete our schooling while working fulltime. Honestly, my "prime years" were nothing but wasting money, drinking alcohol, and making terrible life decisions. Plus, now I can use this "dad bod" excuse now lol
Thank you for this, we are all different, and I know I am far from perfect. I know ill just have to give it my all and try my hardest even when im down and out.Kids don't come with an instruction manual. No one is perfect. The important thing is to just do the best you can. As long as your are not a complete derelict you should be fine.
