Jennifer Lee Duncan
came into the world at 3:45 A.M. and my first day as a single parent begins. The day after prom was senior skip day. All seniors go to wild wood for the weekend and get crazy stupid. My boyfriend at the time and I got a hotel together and had a couple drinks with friends. That night we had amazing sex without a condom. 2 weeks went by and i just felt different. Different as in discomfort. usually people get morning sickness when pregnant i didn't. instead my taste for food changed. more weeks go by and still no period which drove me crazy thinking i could be pregnant. rite aid was the closest store to my house and i ran there. there it is. confirming it with my doctor that I'm pregnant with my boyfriend at my right hand side. 3 weeks before Jennifer was born he panic and left. he wasn't ready and neither was I, but I was going to be a mother and father to her. I got job as a lawyer assistant making $25,500.00 a year. Got a decient apartment in a neighborhood my babygirl can grow up in.

This project actually taught me how expensive being a parent can be. i used to think anyone can have a baby but having a baby and taking care or it is a struggle. having a budget and sticking within that budget can be tricky. providing clothes, food, and entertainment for that child cost so much more than i thought. having to pay for child care for $5 an hour i thought was good, but if you do the math for 12 months subtract 2 weeks you got off work added up to $2,250. And oh my goodness the baby formula. I thought would be less then $20 since it was the powder formula, but it wasn't it was $29.98 each container and i had to buy 20! Plus i thought apartments would be cheap like around $600, but no. Providing for a baby as a single parent or not it is truly hard. Managing your money wisely and buying things you need instead of you want is a true eye opener. Being a parent is a struggle but at the end of the day its worth it.
