Well didn’t buy these on Black Friday or Cyber Monday but I found these really helpful to my work: 1) standing desk 2) widescreen monitor 3) wireless speakerphone. Been to office a few times recently and my productivity is nothing compared to WFH mostly become of these things.

Great ideas, thank you

At what age were your kids able to sleep alone in an unfamiliar place (e.g., room in vacation home)?

They are now 4 and 2.5… should they be able to go to sleep in the room together without him there? Are they old enough to understand and cooperate?
