I laughed and told him to spend all he wants, once I get that order he'll be owned by the state and will eventually have no choice but to put it towards the child he threw away.

Of course partnered parents don't know what it's like to be a single parent! Sheesh.
My dear sweet momma advised me to sign up for a full load of classes (I quit my career of 10 years and went back to college 3 months before I found out I was preggers) for the term that started 2 weeks after ds was due. I was pretty clueless at the time. Fortunately one of my professors told me that was crazy since I'm a single mom and there would be no one to hold ds while I did the dishes, much less homework, and I probably wouldn't want to leave him while I went to class.....and 2 weeks to get back to normal after giving birth IF he came on time? Soo glad I didn't do what mom advised, especially since ds was 3 weeks late!

She found out I dropped most of my classes when ds was three weeks old and was a bit put out and told me I was being lazy and irresponsible and she knew what was possible 'cause my dad was working 12 hr days when her first child was born..... It took a lot of self control not to blow up at her, but I'm glad I held my tongue just because she's been a great support in every other way, but it was really frustrating to hear because she was a sahm for crying out loud and she wanted me to leave my baby in the first month of his life to go to class? Sheesh.
