Given the strength of the dollar vs the euro, could people purchase euros here in the US (banks/money exchange stores) and sell them later when the Euro becomes stronger? Is this possible/legal? I assume taxes would need to be paid on the gains? Never dabbled in Forex so please forgive the newbie question. This scenario just keeps running through my head when I hear the news. And I keep wondering why people arent doing this 😅
Anyone planning to start a family in a year or so? My partner and I have been talking about it and while I'm excited, I'm also nervous on how this will effect my career
I had an interview a month ago. Checked in 2 days after the interview, and then 2 weeks later. Recruiter said no updates, but she will be in touch. It's now been 2 more weeks. Can I follow up again? Or will she be bothered since she said she would keep me posted. Seems like a long time for silence, but maybe I'm just impatient.

I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.

Little guy spiked a 102° fever tonight. Wife and I have been 100% wfh, kids all homecare and virtual school, taking masks etc very seriously. We do go for groceries, and have 2 similarly cautious families in our bubble. Incredible he could catch anything. Time for tests... and waiting.
Anyone have a Sig O that wants to still stay 100% locked down due to Covid? I’ve struggled a lot through the pandemic because I’m very social. It’s way worse now when my wife is adamant about us basically doing nothing socially, no indoor eating, etc. Even no Easter with family… with the family not being overly risky but just basically a balanced Covid life. We have one kid under 1. Honestly just curious if anyone has dealt with this and any tips.
I'm 30lbs up from wedding weight. First kid is 15months and becoming more active, second kid is coming in October, and I'm targeting director promo next year. Any tips on shedding fat before baby two?

Very wonderful day for me. My 12 month old started talking and called me Mumma first time. - A very happy dad :)
Wondering if anyone started a family at the same time as starting MBB and how it turned out. I’m off to b-school in a month and considering MBB afterward, but that’ll be the same time that my wife and I want to have our first kid. This is a pivotal moment in my career but I don’t necessarily want to abandon my wife with a newborn for four days per week...
Take a Dad break and enjoy wine...
Quite the pickle: wife is upset that I keep criticizing her, but she keeps doing legitimately addressable things like leaving the toddler alone around knives
Any suggestions for a nice resort/getaways in New England that would be good with two kids under 2?

Dads - my wife just got an awesome job offer. I want to get her something nice to celebrate and congratulate her. Any ideas of good gifts for professional mamas? Ideas I’ve already thought about:

- other general jewelry
Any other ideas?
