Any advice on how to meet people (friends or networking) while working from home? I moved to the suburbs from MO for my boyfriend in January and haven’t really had the chance to meet people through work yet.

Dump the boyfriend and move to the city? Kidding. Not sure what the Chicago Interactive Marketing Association (CIMA) is like in a Covid world, but in Before times that was a good way to meet people. Rec league sports are a good way to meet people as well if that's your thing. Does your college's alumni association have a Chicagoland chapter? If so that could be another option. Good luck! Even without Covid this isn't always an easy thing.

How do you manage sleep when traveling with a toddler? My daughter just turned two and she had been sleep trained and is an excellent sleeper BUT only sleeps in her own crib. I rock her until she falls asleep and put her in her crib. But this has to be in her room. If I rock her in my bedroom, she won't fall asleep. I want to take a vacation and I'm really afraid that she won't fall asleep in the hotel and will cry a lot. She sort of understands when we talk to her so I can communicate...
