Does anyone worry that they may never be able to afford to have a baby?
I am 24 so still young but everything in life seems to be zooming by and I am not getting anywhere. I have spent five years trying to plan for a holiday and still haven’t gone. I have spent three years trying to save a house deposit and only have a whopping $20.
I work full time but only on 40K and my job is not fulfilling. I am currently studying to be a primary school teacher but it will take me eight years + another five years to get some general savings.
My partner doesnt want children on the basis they he won’t be able to give them the absolute best and given that we both need to work, the child will most likely be in childcare from 8am to 6pm everyday.
My clock is ticking and I am really starting to wonder how I will ever get there. I see all these other people with children and just seriously wonder how they do it. How they probably own a house, the mother stays at home and yet they still can afford a car and to get by.
