Has anyone dealt with this before?
I am moving to the UK in Aug from the States, but I have a snub nosed pet and they’re not allowed on flights to the UK.
I heard people usually fly with them in the main cabin through France and then travel to England through the EuroTunnel, but I’m wondering if this will even be possible with all these quarantines in both Fr and UK... let alone figuring out the logistics.
I’m going on my first travel project. What’s the best way and tips to earn the most reward? Would appreciate any suggestion
Entering third trimester and might start project that requires travel weekly (3.5+ flight). Realize this isn’t a Med community & I have my doctor for that, but would love advice whether this is a good idea or if I should push back and try to find something remote?

Does anyone have input as to how most designers or graphic designers are doing during this pandemic? Since January 2020, I became laid off from my job working full-time and remotely for a Southwest Florida urologist that I worked for about 10 years. no it seemed I was going to get my job back around July of last year, he decided to create a partnership with an oncologist who had his own marketing team. Because of the partnership, it looks like I can only work freelance for them now.

Is 38 too late to start looking good? It just occurred to me this week that I can finally buy stuff for myself without feeling guilty or waiting for boxing day or a big sale. I have gray hair, dark circles and bulging belly and I am finally at a place where I can do something for me...but I feel like I've lost my prime "pretty years" and is 38 looking like 68.
Does anyone take day dates with their spouse/partner? By the time I get to bed, even on the weekends, I’m spent. I wonder if it would be more enjoyable to spend that time together during the day. We both work incredibly hard and are successful, but honestly I’m more the YOLO type and he probably would find it ridiculous to take this time off work. Has anyone found some enjoyment/benefit to spending time with your spouse like this?

I am pregnant with my 2nd and my job is very demanding. First trimester was bad for me with my first pregnancy and I took 2 months unpaid personal leave.
I can't afford that now and cannot risk my job. Not in public accounting anymore. I work in SEC reporting at a pharmaceutical company.
I am so thankful to be working from home for sure. I am just really dreaded to turn on my computer everyday with this hell of a morning sickness.

Anyone have tips on actually “stopping the grind”? I’m in my second trimester of a high risk pregnancy and on busy clients until I’m due. (Senior Associate). Told my mgr and HR that I am expecting, but am still having to work until 2 am. Not getting enough sleep isn’t good my doctor said. How do I communicate this with my mgr? If I don’t stay up until al hours of the night, I won’t be able to get all my allocation done.. I’m stuck.
Any mom’s working remote jobs that allow children at home? If you could share titles or companies that would be great! Thank you!
Can anyone speak to their own experience having a housekeeper? I have always viewed this as the expense of super rich people. As I don't think we are this, I am having trouble deciding but I know we realistically need one. I work full time in consulting, husband in pharma. Just one kid. But too much time goes in to house chores. What does a housekeeper do? What do they not do? What hours do they typically work? And days? And where do you find them? For people that have outsourced in other ways,
How do you deal with your kids not seeing you during busy season? I kiss their sleeping heads when I get home, and I watch them on my nanny cam. But they don’t see me, and that makes me sad
Anyone have advice on reviving a marriage that hasn't gotten any attention for too many years because kids and work come first?
My husband and I are pretty good co-parents, which is great, but he isn't very responsive to my attempts to make time for romance, & the relationship has died down after 19 years. (Sex is good but the emotional connection isn't.) Last kid at home graduates in 5 years, and we may become one of those couples that divorces after the kids leave the nest.
We do this all the time. We tend to keep travel time at less than 5 hours until they are a little older (learned the hard way), but you will have memories and pics to share even if they don’t remember. I highly recommend travel with kids, but reset your expectations from vacation to “family trip.” Then you will build memories and not be disappointed at the relative lack of a relaxation. They’re only little for a little while. Don’t miss it and take tons of pics.
Well Covid ruined everything but we took our first around a lot prepandemic! California and Miami as a baby, some shorter road trips and camping around one year and Japan at 15 months. It’s fun! You just need to slow wayyy down and schedule around naps which is a blessing in and of itself.
Mine are 6 and 8 now, but I love all the memories of taking them on little adventures even as babies and toddlers. You’re right they don’t remember, but putting little baby toes in the sand and ocean for the first time was fun for us parents and even fun for the babies (based on their smiles and giggles at the time, not based on their current memories of the trip, haha). And they LOVE looking at the pictures and videos now. You’ll find people who say they took their infants all over the world, and that definitely wasn’t me, because that simply wouldn’t have been fun for me. My kids swear they remember trips they took as toddlers, and who knows how much is from looking at pictures and hearing stories, but I do think there are parts of the experiences that stuck in their brains! That said, the same is true of local trips to the zoo, aquarium, parks, playgrounds, farms, etc etc. But I think go on the trips that YOU think are fun and don’t worry that they may not remember! Make the family memories. Enjoy!
My kids don’t remember a single trip we took with them when they were under 3. We did it anyway. Both are now great travelers ✈️
Do it now. You'll ALL learn to travel as a family. And even if they don't remember you will. And they'll love to hear your memories about it, and know they were there.
I once heard that traveling encourages kids to make developmental leaps, but it may be an old wives' tale. We traveled domestically and internationally before my kid turned 2. I got more efficient with packing each time, and I swear that my kid "suddenly" mastered whatever he was working on (sitting up alone, self soothing with no pacifier, etc.) once we returned home. Even if these were just coincidences, the exposure to new scenery, smells, food, and people is so good for them.
We plan to do some very local trips this year and next year when my youngest is 1.5, we plan on Chicago for a longer weekend and then go from there. We live in WI so we are going to stay around there for a few years until they are a bit older
The main thing is figuring out what you’ll be doing while they’re napping/sleeping as that can be a large chunk of your time. Staying somewhere that you can at least enjoy some sun while they’re napping, etc. We had some very nice friends we could stay with a couple times. That worked well because you can hang out after kids in bed. Or we would go with grandparents so there was someone to trade off on nap duty and so we could get a dinner out.
Family trips with babies are great. It requires some logistical planning, but much easier than traveling with older kids who have opinions 😅. We traveled a bunch when my first born was a baby.
My partner and I both work remotely and have found that taking a few hours off on a Friday afternoon and going out of town with our children two to three hours away for a long weekend is a really nice way to prepare for longer car trips. We are in the Midwest and travel to the coast several times a year to visit family. We're actually doing a short trip tomorrow, and our children (3 & 7) are delighted at the prospect of staying in a hotel and getting to watch screens in the car. We upgraded to a minivan this year and it has changed our travel game dramatically. The ability to put the back seats down and have a larger area for luggage and a potty station has been phenomenal. I also have an exceptionally detailed spreadsheet of everything everyone needs for each type of trip: short weekends, weeks at the beach, overnight in the winter, etc. It takes a lot more planning, but it's a lovely way to build memories.
