Hi there! My name is Alicia and I'm 23 years old. I have a boyfriend and we have a daughter named Kaye who is 1 1/2 years old. I went to college before I started dating my boyfriend, but hated my school, dropped out to have a wild and free summer with him.. We moved back home because we were broke.. had a kinda crazy unstable relationship for a while.. then I got pregnant and we had Kaye.. our relationship has really stabilized over the last year and I am very hopeful about our future together. As for myself, I went back to school last fall and am pursuing a nursing degree. I am currently taking Anatomy and Physiology 1 this summer, and then I'll take A&P 2 in the fall.. I was hoping to take the NLN after I completed A&P 1&2 and then apply to the nursing program.. However life seems to be taking its own turns as I just go for the ride.. I just found out a couple weeks ago that we are expecting again. My boyfriend is thrilled and I am pretty happy too.. but I'm just nervous.. I wanna get married, I wanna finish school, we don't even live together yet. I'm already going crazy just trying to take this A&P class because the only time I have to do my work is when Kaye is napping and when she goes to bed.. I feel like I have chronic fatigue, I have no free time to be with my friends or relax.. Either way, I am generally a happy person, and I have a positive attitude that the future will be good (the present is good, too, just challenging!) I decided to join cafemom because I was google searching trying to find a spot where I could talk to other moms, get/give advice and encouragement, and just learn new things and stay social from my home! I find it very hard at the age of 23 to be constantly taking care of my child, going to school, studying, and working. I hope that this online community will be a good place to learn and grow, especially as I am going through my 2nd pregnancy. Thanks for reading!
