I left my FT consulting job couple of months ago to be the primary stay-at-home-parent. I still work PT but my schedule is based around the school hours. This is the first time I've got be a true SAHD! Couldn't be happier about the decision.


OP happy for you ! Glad you could take afternoon naps. Sure it feels good .


So happy to see this!

Looking for advice on career change. I’m a 45 year old single mom - I’ve been at my job for 18 years. I know I could be doing more. The job isn’t fulfilling and the workplace is rather toxic. The pay is pretty good - when I look at other open positions in my field / the pay is much less or the same. Honestly just unsure of what I “want” to do. Stay where I am and get a side hustle that may be fulfilling or change careers altogether. I’m a placement coordinator at a home care agency.

Did anyone actually like the live action version of Mulan? I feel like it was so cringe. Def a fan of the cartoon over this. I wish they did a more faithful adaption like they did for Aladdin 😭


How do you handle it when your kid can’t go to school/daycare? Daycare options in my area are extremely limited, and the one are in is pretty good. They are very strict about kids not being there when they are sick, which I appreciate and mostly agree with. Except that the rules are along the lines of if your kid has a temperature over 100, they cannot come in until they’ve been under 100 for 72 hours. According to every doctor I’ve spoke to, 100 isn’t even considered a fever. (See rest below)

Wondering if anyone started a family at the same time as starting MBB and how it turned out. I’m off to b-school in a month and considering MBB afterward, but that’ll be the same time that my wife and I want to have our first kid. This is a pivotal moment in my career but I don’t necessarily want to abandon my wife with a newborn for four days per week...


Wife asked me what I wanted for Father's Day, I really have no clue... What do you usually ask for or receive?

2 year old waking up screaming for mom in the crib at 4 am every day. We spend about 30 minutes getting him calm and then he’s up by 530 again. Used to be a championship sleeper. Tired and moody all day. Any tips?


Thinking I judge too much. Went to the liquor store today and saw a dad bringing in his 4-6 year old and thought to myself really in a liquor store!


Little guy spiked a 102° fever tonight. Wife and I have been 100% wfh, kids all homecare and virtual school, taking masks etc very seriously. We do go for groceries, and have 2 similarly cautious families in our bubble. Incredible he could catch anything. Time for tests... and waiting.


Got the Rona for the first time, feels like the flu so far. I’m currently held up in the guest room, but any other tips to help me and my family get through this? Wife and son aren’t showing symptoms yet.


Anyone else noticing issues loading posts?

I’ve been away all week, about to head home. Got a call from my wife crying and saying that she just got into a huge argument with our teenage daughter and ended up slapping her..

Told older daughter to “shut up” last night after consistently whining during bedtime, while wife & I were trying to get both her & younger daughter to sleep. Felt terrible immediately. Am I horrible?

Potty training tips? We just started with our 2.5yr old and have made 0 progress going on 4 days. He’s super smart and inquisitive and we probably made a mistake in having high expectations. He’s just super freaked out about the potty and just holds everything in.

Very wonderful day for me. My 12 month old started talking and called me Mumma first time. - A very happy dad :)


Long shot but wondering if any NJ dads in here who had delivery in Hackensack University Medical Center? Would really appreciate anything you can share about your experience and any tips please?

Thinking to take a trip with my baby when she’s 3.5 months old. Just to get out of the cold. Bad idea?

Going to Miami in August.

Any recommendations for family friendly beaches, areas or activities? We have 4yo.

Does anyone send their kids to a low rated elementary school? Is it really that bad?

Additional context, looking at buying a new house that is zoned for a school rated a 3. They are building a new elementary school that is zoned for the new neighborhood. So would be sending my kindergartener to the other school for a year... doesn’t seem like that big of a deal for a year? Don’t like the idea of doing private school for a year (~$20k for a year).


How did you meet your SO?
