A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!

New father here. Love consulting and traveling but being away from my baby has been tough. How do others cope besides the obvious (FaceTime, pictures/videos, etc)?
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??

My fiancé and I (arranged marriage) are long distance for the past year with the wedding hopefully in the fall. While I have been working out/trying to be more fit in time for the wedding, my fiancé has put on quite a bit of weight since the pandemic, idk what to say or how to approach this to encourage them to be more fit. Mental health wise he is much more optimistic and is also in a state no restriction. We have not been intimate and kinda bothers me that he isn’t even bothered to put effort

So...I recently started a new position (within the past year). While I like the practice area, I'm not a huge fan of the type of work I'm doing. I'm a new lawyer. I had planned to stay in this position for years, but I've learned there is very little chance that I will get to do any litigation. Most of the attorneys at my job were previously trial attorneys and they took this position for the slower pace and regular hours. I'm worried about moving on too quickly. Thoughts?

I currently have a “retainer” agreement set up with a client for a certain number of deliverables over the course of a month and a half. They told me it would not be big lift, so we agreed on “half day” rates. Obviously, once the work got started it became more than a half day. Now they are trying to add more deliverables and think it should be included in our scope. I think I should charge them for the extra deliverables. What do you think?
