Need recommendations for a good mattress that will last 5-10 years and make me sleep like a baby. Budget is max 3-4k. Thoughts?
Anyone care to share any fun old wives tales about what the gender of an unborn baby is? I’ve heard about the ring test (goes in a circle it’s a boy, straight line it’s a girl) and that if you crave salty foods it’s a boy vs sweet, it’s a girl. Were any of them correct??
My wife and I are in a bad spot. A close friend of ours recommended individual and couples therapy for us both. Tonight, my wife blew up on me and told me I wasn’t worth going to therapy with and that I’m a horrible father to our kids. Could use a word or two of encouragement right now. Never felt so low.
My three year old now doesn’t go to bed until around 9 pm (and gets up around 7/730 am which we prefer… don’t want to move that schedule). I used to squeeze in extra work from 8-930/10 but it’s no longer feasible. How do you manage? I see my options as… 1) find a job that is more 9-5 2) start waking up early to work in the morning (not a fan as I think sleep is very important) 3) trade nights with husband where every other night I work vs him while the other hangs with the kid after 8

My wife is telling me to start looking for a new job now and I prefer to wait until after the 3 - 4 month parental leave when my kid is born in late July. Her position: You’re not likely to find what you want for several months so you should start looking in May. What does everyone else think?

Had a lateral “screener” interview for an AmLaw 100 firm in May with 2 partners and was ghosted (but never given a formal rejection). I received a call two weeks ago asking me to interview, with HR stating that they were looking to make additions & wouldn’t string someone along. I had my callback with about 5 people and am now being asked to meet with further people. Is that normal?
