Honest thoughts on baby boy name being Denver? I like unique names but can’t decide if I love it or hate it.
I am about to return to work after maternity leave. I have a 4 month old and a two year old. Our daycare is periodically closing due to COVID. We don’t have family nearby to help when daycare closes and I’ll be headed into busy season upon my return. I’m already on a reduced schedule. No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.
I love my husband. He’s kind, sexy, fun. We have a good time together. But he’s become a real financial mess during our marriage. Huge debt because he’s in and out of jobs. Including tax debt. He also has children from his prior marriage who are expensive and greedy. What would you do?

You all inspired me (see post below about looking for a physical challenge that won’t kill me). I think I’ll try a triathlon/sprint triathlon. Any tips? I think (?) I can swim - I know I learned when I was a kid, but I haven’t actually swam in a few decades. I can definitely ride a bike and I can run. Not looking to win any medals, I’m just looking for a challenge that will keep me engaged.

I think I’m falling for my mother in law. The feelings aren’t necessarily sexual in nature. They seem to be much deeper and emotional feelings—which I get would concern my wife more so than sexual feelings. It doesn’t help that everyone thinks my MIL finds me to be her “favorite” in addition to some other complicating nuances. Obviously, I won’t act on these feelings, but as the years go by, the closer we’re going to get since she’s around a lot and we talk quite often when we’re alone.

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?

Any ideas for how to frame this to the client? In house lawyers, is there an acceptable way your outside counsel could handle this situation? I am feeling so sad and stressed.
