Thoughts on timing baby number 2? The original plan was two kids less than 4 years apart; I was planning on trying this summer, but decided to delay because COVID. My daughter just turned 3, and I'm back and forth between just giving in and trying now so they're more closely spaced, or waiting until there's a vaccine even though they'll be further apart in age than I'd like. Thoughts? I'm 31 so biologically I'm not in a huge rush but I'm really starting to feel the baby fever.
MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.

My wife and I need a break. Had our first baby in March and we are worn out (getting better) but very tired. Wife said to me “I need us time”, and she’s never said that in the 3 years we’ve been married. Suggestions on getaways or things to do?

Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...

Not pregnant yet but curious how pregnancy impacts performance, if at all. If all goes to plan I’ll have my first trimester over busy season. Curious how that goes and if any slack is given if pregnancy symptoms are bad

Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
What would u do in this "hypothetical" scenario. 1. Student gets 95 percentile on standardized tests in 1st grade. 2. 2nd gr teacher, capable and flexible but a little old school. 3. Parent, from foreign country, wants us to teach 2 years ahead of where student is at in math and reading in case they have to return to other country. 4. District's old standard for acceleration is at the 97th+ percentile and other students are much more"advanced". 5. Parent wants detailed steps for teacher's plan

Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
