My baby starts daycare in 2 weeks, she is 4 months old. I am starting to get concerned about Covid for her since she can’t get vaccinated yet and I’ve heard the Delta variant hits kids harder. Her daycare is taking all of the necessary steps. Are some people still keeping their kids home from daycare to reduce the risk? Or are you sending your kids and just following daycare protocol?
Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

I don't think Miss Manners response was helpful but I'm not sure what else there would be to say without maybe flipping the table or something haha. Any witty retorts?
Need to vent. I feel like giving 100% (let’s be honest, usually more than that) to work isn’t enough anymore. My projects get my undivided attention, but I’m too mentally exhausted to participate in all the workplace extras. The groups, the communities, the talks, the panels. The concern that it makes me look bad always lingers in the back of my mind, but as a working parent I don’t know how else to say it… I’m drained. I just want to do my job really well and then spend time with my family.
When was the last time you did something just for yourself? And what was it? We few friends from school met online after a long time. All of us looked well, tired and we all realized we have been so busy looking out for our family and kids and we forgot to prioritize ourselves. This was a group of friends across the globe, so seems like a global problem… It can be simple as working out alone or fancy as going for staycation at airbnb solo (I am not eligible for this since kid refuses to wean!)
Had a bad week. I felt as if I got nothing done. I am the caretaker for my mother, and I have a five-year-old and a truck-driving boyfriend (who is pulls a lot of energy the two days I see him). I’m trying to grow my career and a healthy little girl. Any suggestions on releasing the mental strain.

How would you react if your SO came down with a flu (not Covid), and you lived separately? Would you avoid each other (assuming no one is at risk here) or move in to help the other person out ? My SO (pre-Covid) would always avoid me if I got a cold or flu and and he refused to get the flu shot (fear of needles). He would take my money and buy me OTC medicines, but if he made a mistake-medicine he wouldn’t go back to exchange. It made me feel like he didn’t really care. Am I being entitled here?
