I was in sort of the same boat when I found my current position. They offered me more money and better benefits and I took it. I’m so much happier now and my work life balance actually improved.

No harm looking around. You may find a small team who is lean enough or in an industry that is still growing despite possible recession. Good luck!

Lately I feel like my husband and I are the worst parents in the world. Our kids are 2 and 6 and we have an older dog and a puppy. There is ALWAYS someone whining, crying, needing something. My husband and I get mad and yell at the kids so much lately. It seems like at least one of us is overwhelmed and angry every second of the day. I look at our lives and they look perfect. Good jobs, nice house in a dream neighborhood, everyone is healthy. Other parents do not seem as stressed as us.

Daycare vs Nanny - I’ve got a 5 yr old and a 1 year old. I did full time daycare throughout the pandemic with my oldest and had no issues. Recently it feels like it has become more stressful. It seems like I have to get my youngest tested for covid every other week. Would a nanny make things easier or just create another set of problems?!
