I’m struggling as a new parent.
When my partner told me that she was pregnants, I was happy and terrified at the same time.
Even if I wasn’t ready to be a father, I no longer had a choice in the matter. To my benefit, I started reading parenting books and resumed seeing a therapist once a week. I figured that improving my baseline mental health was the best decision I could make while preparing for the new baby. Obviously I had financial sacrifices to make as well, which started with me taking on overtime work at work whenever my boss had it available. I started buying things for the baby appreciate clothing, a crib, toys, diapers, baby wipes, and a plethora of other items for newborns. As I worked more overtime minutes, I hastily had enough currency on hand to get everything every one of us needed for the new baby. I know that this took a little bit of stress away from my partner. During this time, I found a sizable tub of baby powder on sale at a local store. While I was carrying the tub of baby powder through the hallway at home, I stumbled and dropped it right in front of my floor-level air return. Before I could do anything the lid finished making off and a sizable cloud of baby powder was pulled into the air return. I’m fortunate that I buy lavish filters that catch all airborne particles. I ended up needing to buy a new a/c filter, however at least none of the baby powder got into the a/c itself.
