I'm 19 and I have a 9 month old daughter. Her fathers family lives in Georgia and I speak to them very often. I talk to his mom at least once a week and its the same with his sister. I send the rest of his family pictures and keep them updated on how our daughter is doing.
I want to take a little vacation from New York since I've been here and havent left my town for the last year and a half. It's very depressing looking at the same scenery every day and its quite dreary.
My mom doesnt want me to go because she says I dont have the money. But I do have the money. I have to pay my dad $50/month for the phone bill and that I've paid in advance until May. I also bought my sisters car from them and I have to give them $1,000. I've spanned the payments out for 18 months and that will be $60/month. I have money for both of those.
I buy my daughters diapers and every day items in bulk. She has diapers, wipes, clothes, etc. to last her at least until June. The gas for my car is taken care of as well. I dont travel often, so i dont use up that much gas.
But somehow... I dont have enough money. I've accounted for the hotel and flight, and his mom is willing to get the rental car for me.
I'm 19, but i seems as if im 13 and i still need my parents approval. Should i be an adult and just do what i would like to do? Or listen to my parents and just stay put.
