Everyone knows having to tend to a newborn baby is hard work to say the least, especially when doing it practically alone. So I start college in March and my baby is due to be delivered this week(leaving me about a month in between). EVERYONE is criticizing my decision to go to college four days a week!
Am I wrong? Am I being unrealistic? Setting myself up for disaster?
I just want to hurry up and be able to provide for my daughter on legitimate income and health care. I cant do that with a job as a cashier and the sooner I can do it the better.
Any single full time student moms out there? Anyone been through this before?
Any and all advice is appreciated and feel free to message me, I could use the support!

Are you doing on line classes or will you be attending a regular brick & mortar college? Can you take any of these classes on line? I think you can do it but don't know how much you'll really get out of it or be able to put into it. Kudos for trying to better your & your baby's life, an education will afford you many more opportunities in life. Make sure you have a good support system in place, as pp's have said backup child care is essential but so is someone you can call @ 11 pm when you just can't take it anymore & you need help w/ the baby. There's gonna be times where the baby's sick & doesn't wanna sleep & you have a huge test or paper the next day, plan for these times & the rest will be a breeze comparatively. Remind yourself why you're doing this when the times get hard & they will. If you want to you can do anything.
