Sounds like you have a theory worth testing. Trust your parental instincts. Ours have always had subtle patterns, not solids or cartoon patterns

We have a blue set with whales on it, very bold, and grey set with no discernible pattern. No change in sleep behavior here.

I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.

Recently restarted strength training. I had my baby about a year ago and my tummy (37.5 inches at the belly button) is just huge. Checked with my gyno and she rules out Diastasis Recti and said all of it was just fat 🥲Any ladies who had luck with strength training and reducing tummy fat? I’m not looking at immediate results or even spot reduction- just curious how it looks like after a year or two. Female , 32 year old.

Deloitte: I see there is an HR policy that allows you to go 60-80% whenever you want to/in any role so long as there is a business case. Does this ever happen in consulting?

If that’s something I could work towards and prepare for in the year or so prior, I’d like to set myself up well for it! Any insight is appreciated!

How often were your babies sick their first year at daycare? (Sick like with a fever, not just a runny nose) it seems like my kid is constantly sick, can’t tell if it’s normal

Now that my school is completely in-person, I’m noticing that the students who were online last year are pushing back on everything we do in school. Following the most basic of rules, directions, or fun is a struggle. I teach 8th grade, but I coach in the high school. I’m seeing it across the board. Is anyone else seeing this too? Is your school or district addressing it with any preventative measures social-emotional supports?

When did you know that you want to have a kid(s) and what helped you decide to go for it? Not a mom but want to ask people With first hand experience. My BF is sure he wants them and I did too until I did the research on cost of childcare, lifestyle changes, and most importatntly the impact on career (my BF says family stays with you but works don't. I love work for the sense of achievement). Now I am leaning toward childfree. I would really appreciate your thoughts and advice!
