I’m sorry if I made anyone feel insecure about using Irish Spring! Use whatever makes you feel clean and good.

My boyfriend panic bought a 12-pack so our linen closet is especially fragrant right now. I posted out of linen closet frustration!

I admit, I did get nervous that I was a stinkpot since I just bought two big bottles of Irish spring gel wash!

Irish spring isn’t bad!!

My dad used to wash his hair with a bar of soap. My mom asked him why and he said because it’s too hard to figure out all the bottles in the shower. She bought him his own shampoo and wrote his name on the bottle. That probably doesn’t help you but this story always makes me laugh. He’d been secretly washing his hair with bar soap for 30 years. 😂

Hi 🐠🐟 Moms,

Does anyone have any advice to motivate my 7yo. 2nd grader to try his best at school? We have been doing home schooling now since q4 of kindergarten. Mom & dad WFH and we didn't see the reason to send our oldest to school unmasked and unvaccinated to risk the rest of family / siblings. We celebrate his achievements. Give him report card bonuses. I even let him turn in assignments not done completely so he would get the grade he deserves. That just turned into more work. Cont'd

Not work related but I didn't know where else to post. I just broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years. He was my first real boyfriend. I dated other guys but nothing that lasted this long.

A junior member in my team asks me a question about following up with a client proactively, and I love that. The problem is that when I tell her it’s a good idea she would ask me to do it. I’m not her direct manager but she reports to my manager so often times my manager asks me to do what this junior tells me to do. It’s a weird dynamic and honestly I don’t feel great because it happens too much and she gets the praises for asking me. How do I bring this issue up? Do I go to my manager first?
