I got married when I was 30. Now I am 34 and all of a sudden I find myself pressured to have a baby ASAP. My parents, my sisters, my friends and my husband all have been telling me that it’s late and I should start planning soon. There is another couple in my social circle who just announced their pregnancy and the rest of them already have kids. The pressure has skyrocketed and I am terribly anxious.
I moved in to my first home about 6 months back. I live by myself and just want to be in my neighbors good books. I was under the assumption that neighbors would try and make me feel welcome to the neighborhood but nothing so far. Any tips or ideas for a gift on a budget to be in their good books? For reference both neighbors are a couple , one is an older couple and the other are expecting their first child.TIA!
Today is my first day back at work (and first full day back in my physical office) after a few weeks off for parental leave. Needless to say, I am struggling to stay focused on anything other than wanting to go back home to my spouse and child. I know I shouldn't take an emotional temperature on day one, but it has been more difficult being back than I anticipated. Any tips for navigating the waters for the first day/week/month back?

Does anyone else feel like Olympic campaigns are seriously subpar this year? (One exception being the skateboarding FB ads by Droga). Normally I feel like there are at least several great campaigns you see over and over and this year I literally can’t even bring many to mind. Wondering if the cause has been covid production restrictions, or less money pumped in due to fear of the games being cancelled, or brands feeling like the Olympics shouldn’t have even happened. Thoughts?
