Is this what it takes now to get an in person interview. The video sucks too. Sorry if you're reading this kid. At least on your chest over the heart would have had a better concept. https://www.adweek.com/agencyspy/did-this-dude-actually-tattoo-rgas-logo-on-his-forehead-to-apply-for-an-internship/154355
Moms, I am 23 weeks pregnant. Is it ok for me to have canned tuna? I have been craving it but worried tuna has mercury and cans have BPA. Thank you!
Mamas, any recs for pjs (for me, not baby). My beloved Cathay pacific freebies are on their last legs. With two littles (and no plans to make a third! 😂) looking for pants + top, no fancy fabrics because… applesauce everywhere, with pockets, work in range of temperatures and look decent if I haven’t changed before the nanny comes. Does that even exist? Help!! Not convinced by a lot of the Google shopping / Amazon links.
It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.
Starting IVF stims in two weeks and getting cold feet. Starting a family has never been a huge priority for me, although it is something I want to do if possible. I feel like the nurses and doctors just assume you want to do everything it takes to have a baby, but I’m not sure that’s true for me. Unexplained infertility diagnosis doesn’t help, either. Anyone else have doubts at this stage?
My boyfriend and I hadn’t had sex for 2.5 months (with other long breaks before that). I broke and brought up the issue and he eventually explained that he’s not been attracted to me. I’m 105 lbs and ride my bike to get around the city (or at least do a leisure ride on the weekends if I had no errands to run that week), but he still thinks I’m too sedentary and spend too much time curled up on my phone. But the problem is…cont
Baby sleep: 3 month old is on a good schedule during the day but bedtime isn’t working. Currently she eats at 7AM, 10AM, 1PM, 4PM, 7PM. She is awake for 2 hours at a time except after 4PM feed she is awake for 1.5 hours. Then we’re trying to have her awake from 6-7PM and eat at 7 and go to bed. Instead she is inconsolable from 7 till like 8:30-9PM. We thought having less wake time at night was the move. Once she falls asleep she stays asleep till 2AM and then sleeps again till 7AM. Help please!!
Kid or Dog: my coworker wakes me up by dropping toys on my head and demanding breakfast.
There are new anti-LGBT bills coming. One is from Louisiana. It explicitly prohibits LGBT teachers from mentioning their orientation or identity in any grade *up through 12*. It’s going to be harder to spin this one, I feel. https://thehill.com/news/state-watch/3259642-red-states-consider-florida-style-dont-say-gay-bills/
I found out today I lost my baby at 8 weeks—still in shock. I’ve never had a miscarriage (or a pregnancy) before and we’ve been doing IVF for more than a year. Physically, my doctor said I will be okay the day after the D&C. I need to tell work what I can and can’t do, but have no idea. I know everyone is different, but what have you done/wish you’d done work-wise afterwards? Do I just plan on a normal schedule on Wednesday or should I expect to be curled in a fetal position crying for a week?
What’s are some actually good baby/kids books?? Trying to find the sweet spot of length and plot / cuteness for bedtime. I’ll be honest I don’t like the “classics” 😶
https://www.foxnews.com/media/school-hide-students-gender-transition-lgbtq-content-parents I have gotten this exact email from counselors..."If contacting home..."

Looking for everyone's opinion. How often is reasonable to respond to a parent when they are emailing multiple times a day? I have a special ed colleague that has a parent emailing multiple times a day asking a dozen or more questions daily. Most of the questions are not simply information seeking; they are critical, confrontational, or questioning why the IEP is written as it is. How often should this colleague respond?
My mother in law asked to be in the delivery room when my wife gives birth. Is this normal? My gut reaction was "you absolutely may not."
