How do you manage to perform frequent nightshifts? I start the day at 6 with some sports and have to balance household, work, my baby and dog. But at 8pm im sooo tired. Any tipps?
My little step sister is 9 and is very clearly and openly the less favored child between her and her brother. I feel terrible for the environment she has to grow up in. I opened an UTMA account for her and am contributing what I can to help her out. Is there anything else I can do to ensure she has the financial freedom she needs to get out of her situation as soon as she hits 18?
What do you think of the baby girl name Araminta Denise? My middle name, my mothers middle name, and mother in laws middle name is Denise, so thats not negotiable I want to honor my dads mother & maternal great grandmother who were both named Minnie but want a fuller name in case she grows out of the nickname. I thought she can be called Araminta professionally, but the family will always call her Minnie. Araminta was also Harriet Tubman’s given name Thoughts? Suggestions for other Minnies?
Anyone bank their baby’s cord blood? Is it worth it? If yes any recommendations for private bank?
My 16yo son just announced that he wants to go to film school (directing/editing) for college instead of doing a STEM major. I'm trying not to show it but I am completely freaking out.
Anyone have good recommendations for workout programs for pregnant mamas? I know there’s a ton of prenatal yoga programs (including on peloton), but curious if anyone has come across a program/app for women to do weight lifting, light cardio etc... similar to non-pregnant programs. Of course I guess you could use the non-pregnant ones too (assuming it’s ok with the dr) 🙃 feels like there’s a market for this...
When did you tell your work / HR you’re pregnant? Looking for guidance from other pregnant / new moms and how you navigated having conversations with HR and other coworkers.
I’ve been feeling ugly for the past 2 months. Turns out I just needed my lashes done. I’m a baby doll now 🥰
My twin sister had a baby and my brother had a baby. I feel so much more connected to my twin’s baby and my brother makes me feel guilty 😭 I cant help it. Like it’s a twinnie thing?
Anyone care to share when they found out they were pregnant/had a false alarm? I’m 2 weeks late and I’m thinking of taking a test tomorrow. My period has been as regular as it gets since I was 14 so if I’m not pregnant - I’m blaming that lunar eclipse 🤷🏻♀️
Hi friends! I would like to adopt an adult dog & am thinking through post covid world that requires being at work 9-10 hrs day. Live in an apt & am currently single so it will just be me providing care. Have priced out doggie day care & it’s beyond my budget. How long is “too long” for a dog to not have access to the bathroom? Thanks for sharing your your thoughts.
I’m trapped. My husband is a gaslighter. He pushes me to the point of no return. It exacerbates my depression and anxiety and I get so worked up that I can’t function. I can’t leave because we have a baby and I know he would take him from me and win. I have no one out here and I’m alone. I just have to put up with it. There are good times. But it’s hard to keep living like this.
If anyone have any information or knew them pass along the info on the details below https://dailyvoice.com/new-jersey/hudson/police-fire/husband-pregnant-wife-dead-in-jersey-city-murder-suicide-were-dedicated-restaurant-owners/787141/

Thinking to send my 5 months old baby to daycare. Going to take some tours, What should I look for? Or what questions should I ask?
https://joinfishbowl.com/post_7kjcwt37yw I will never understand this way of thinking. I wasn't a huge fan of asking for my future father-in-law's blessing but I did it out of respect. They truly appreciated it and it made the relationship better. Also, if someone's going to pay for my wedding, you better believe that I'm going to ask for their blessing. Six figures that I don't want to have to come up with by myself
6 weeks pregnant over here and struggling a little bc with the nausea I'm experiencing healthy food sounds gross. It feels like a hangover where all I want is bread and carbs. Worrying I'm gonna start gaining weight before it's needed. Any other moms have this struggle? I'm usually a very healthy/fit person so this is proving to be a tough phase for me.
Moms of toddlers in mid west/northeast and not in daycare due to covid - how are you keeping your kid happy/engaged? I feel my 20 MO is stressed out as he hasn’t seen many people in the last few months. Since we are at home we either do chores with him or play with blocks etc. he is now interested in anything other than cleaning the house and due to extreme weather we could just do small walks in the neighborhood. Any other ideas? He is bored and looks zoned out. And no screen time.
All entitlement programs should end in favor of universal basic income, $2000/month to all Americans! Its time we threw baby boomer economy out of the window and took care of millennials
Sorry if this has been previously posted by others. I’m 37 ideally would like one child maybe next year. Should I go through with egg freezing? Would one cycle be enough?

How does this sound?
Post without company

Not crashing anymore.
Sometimes I think I really went out of my way to make things go well, but the outcome can turn out to be very negative.
Does anyone really go in to the office on Fridays?

A minute of silence for those staff augmenters 😔
Front door was shut too soon - with gate agent still on-board. When re-opened, the emergency slide deployed and now the plane is grounded. Happy Monday.
My PM asked me to start taking public transit from the airport to the hotel 15 miles away... Lol #no
I want to date a consultant. Vacations on a whim to foreign destinations on flex sounds better than the status quo.
Traveling to Miami/fort Lauderdale for work next month. Is there an active bowl for 🐠 down there? Going to head down the weekend before and would love recs on things to do, where to go and eat, or if anyone wants to get a drink or has a place to stay
