Dead baby jokes are in and of themselves a trope of comedy. It’s not too far at all, it’s just not that funny.

It’s fascinating to me how differently wired everyone is! It’s great, and it helps we don’t all think and feel the same. 30F here and for me the presence of a baby is the best reminder to take my BC 😅 Would go extinct if everyone had my mindset 😂

Have you watched the movie "Idiocracy?" The beginning is hilariously aligned with this thought pattern.

Would you consider a sugar baby instead?

Thank God I haven't felt this yet, (F28) because I would be the one to drunk peer pressure my bf to try for a baby 🙃

Same!

So what are your baby names and nursery ideas? Personally big on the safari/zoo theme nursery but with neutral tones

Also love the safari theme or just a giant map of the world highlighting different spots that are important to us

I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?

I don’t know if this is true or not. But ever get the impression that sometimes when a staff has a kid the standards that the staff member is held to decreases? Maybe an extreme sense there’s undertones of a mercy promotion given for the sake of affording the kid. Not a formal or even an informal thing - just something that psychologically occurs.

My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)

I am a single 35 yo woman. I have zero desire to have children. All of a sudden I’ve been having these weird flashes of sadness over not procreating. I was babysitting a 6-month old recently and got weepy over the idea I’ll never have my own baby to rock asleep. I’ll never have first day/last day school pictures or get to celebrate milestones with a mini me. Why am I like this? Childless fish, any regrets? But also parents, regrets? 🤷🏻‍♀️
