For moms having their second, third etc child during this pandemic, how did you decide who was going to watch/take care of your older children when you were giving birth? I’m struggling through this concept of having someone watch my daughter. I’m not pregnant currently, but this is keeping me from wanting to try for another. I don’t know if any family members will quarantine if need be or if anyone will actually do what we want them too. My husband told me it will be fine but we can’t expect

However my appt was running late so my husband had to also bring the baby to the toddler appt. Baby was fussy and cried. Toddler decided to be clingy, did not want to walk and wanted to be carried. My poor husband had to wheel a crying baby and while trying to balance a toddler throwing a tantrum to the doctor’s office where they...
Fellow bowl members, this maybe a silly question. For those of you who are single, how do you find other singles who also like to be child free?
I have been running into this challenge for almost 2 years now that I am unable to get far anywhere with my date when I present my dealbreaker i.e. not wanting kids.
I usually bring it up before even if I meet a potential date. I like to know that we have alignment on core values. It's a waste of time, otherwise.

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

Recently had an offer for a manufacturing company recruiter. My experience is primarily military recruitment. Is this type of recruiting any more or less difficult?

Hi Moms, just had baby #2 and we want to upgrade our family car from Toyota Rav4 to a 3-row luxury SUV that's nice looking inside and outside, reliable and has decent cargo space too. My husband doesn't like the exterior of Grand Wagoner. We are considering the Grand Cherokee, Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator. But I have read terrible reviews about Escalade. Folks seem to like GMC Yukon Denali but I'm worried it'll be too big for me to drive. Appreciate recommendations / thoughts. Thanks!

A long life lived doesn’t erase the pain of the loss. She was ours for 96 years; She was our Queen Mother. Her contributions to making a way for those who followed in her regal footsteps will never be forgotten. While I need this news not to be true, the reality of it is starting to rest heavily on my chest. Thank you Miss Cicely Tyson, but now it’s time to take your much deserved rest. Good night...

My husband is suffering from depression and OCD and has kind of given up on his career, working out, grooming himself, engaging with society and friends. He’s an amazing father but spends his day playing with our baby and playing video games. His depression has become a third person in our relationship and it’s destroying our marriage. He doesn’t think anything is wrong and refuses to get individual therapy or go to couples counseling. What can I do? Should I reach out to his fam?I’m miserable.

Pregnant wife is having small portion meals lately, so i asked why she is eating less than usual. She read somewhere that eating too much can lead to oversized baby, making the delivery more painful, so it looks like she may be controlling the portion because of this.

Baby furniture. What is everyone doing? FTM and trying to figure out if it’s worth investing in very expensive nursery furniture. We were looking at the Natart furniture collection and the Silva collections. These both come in at about $2000-$2400. The furniture is high quality and grows with the child. Alternatively I could go the lower end route at get everything for like $800. Is that wise? I hear horror stories about low quality and paint chipping from the baby teething on the crib.
