I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.
Folks. Reaching out in desperation here. I have a family who are US citizens stuck outside of HKIA right now along side another family member who is a SIV holder with his family. Does anyone have contacts on the ground that can help get them out? I will add they have a baby and a disabled child with them.
Anyone have any intel on Office Of Baby?
Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother. I work from home in a very demanding job as a manager and I feel horrible that I have to sacrifice time with my children to work. I want to be successful at work and climb the corporate ladder, but at the same time my children don’t get the attention they need, especially my 6 year old that can barley read.
What are you doing for your mother today?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
How accurate is the calculated due date? In my third trimester with due date a week away from my birthday 😊. Would there be chance my baby and I can share same birthdate?!!
Today would have been my baby shower. I’m so sad we couldn’t spend this gorgeous day with family and friends but I’m so thankful they took time to call, text, FaceTime and send tons of gifts. ❤️

I got an email last night from a 7th-grade parent because her son said I mentioned the words "male privilege" in class, and she is very concerned about how that is related to ELA (she said "reading"), and she is concerned about this being taught in public schools. To be clear, I didn't do a lesson on this subject but we did discuss rights versus privileges. I've had multiple parents contact the school/get upset with me because of things like his. It's exhausting... Thoughts?
I have a guy friend who texts me on a daily basis. I’m happily married with a kid and he is in a relationship too. He tries to pepper his texts with something sexual and it’s starting to get on my nerves. for example, if I say it’s nice weather out he will then tell me to sunbathe nude. the other day he said he’s happy with his relationship but misses the thrill of new sexual flings. I have no interest in this man and i’m not sure why he continues to text me. he is also a partner at a firm (cont

Hi! I joined TCS last year, and I am planning do Cloud Certifications. I need your esteemed answers for the following questions: Is it really necessary/worth to pursue cloud certifications at this stage? Which cloud service provider should I choose?

P.S: I currently work as a Angular Developer in a Citi Bank Project, where I am not exposed to any cloud operations.
