How much is appropriate for daycare caretakers for holidays? Or what do you guys usually gift them?

Just started daycare this year. I had assumed $25 would be reasonable but apparently husbands coworkers all said that’s too low and it should be more like $50... my daycare posts a “profile” for all the teachers and their “favorite things” which makes gift-giving a breeze. That said we are too lazy to put together gift bags, so I just gave out $50 gift cards (though was able to buy them with points at a discount).

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

I’m feeling like a fool today. Was so stressed out and overwhelmed (clients don’t do any work and it piles up on me) and cried on the phone during a call with my SM. Now I just felt like I showed my weakness. This week and the past few months/weeks I haven’t even hardly played or spent time with my kids. I am a single mom of two trying to make it in my career and be a good mom. I feel like I am failing at both. Do you feel that way too?

My husband and I have been having a very hard time with our marriage since our baby was born. She just turned one. Our relationship has gotten better compared to a year ago, but no where near to before our baby was born. We fight almost everyday, mostly about things related to our baby. After the baby’s bedtime, we really don’t do anything together. I am just so sad and depressed over the situation. I still love him but man he is so annoying and I dislike so many things about him

I’m newly married and know my husband wants a child or two in a few years...however I am leaning toward not having any because I’m absolutely terrified of losing my personality and freedom. I am selfish I guess and can’t imagine my life revolving around one person. Before marriage I was still ok with one kid but now I might be changing my mind? How do I bring this up with the husband? Or do I keep it within me until we actually start trying (after year 3 of marriage as per him ideally)

Help ! Is this normal regression ? It’s been 3 weeks my 2.5 YO wakes up 2 to 3 times at night screaming. He couldn’t put himself back to sleep and keeps whining/screaming alternating. There are days he says he is hungry chugs milk, or a fruit and goes back to sleeps, takes around an hour of struggle. He is eating well at night and his screams are waking my infant too. Any tips to make this better and end sooner ?

Would anyone be interested in a nanny share in Buckhead, Atlanta for a couple months (starting in March)? We are waiting for our daughter to get off waitlists, and we need an elegant interim solution.

Our daughter is 14 months and is almost walking - super loving and lovable. Adores music, being outside, and dogs. I think she would love having a little friend to hang out with over the course of the day ❤️

We are trying to find a nanny now, but we would be 100% open if you had one you liked!

I am 12 weeks preg, just got my NIPT result, 95% Down syndrome, I’m devastated, I’m extreme shocked, I’m very sad, overwhelmed, and scared quite frankly. The doctor was asking me what I would like to do, continue the pregnancy or terminate? we can also do more testing, but that could add complications if I do end up choosing terminate.. The thought of someone is asking me to term my preg is heartbreaking.. my head is spinning

Question inspired by something I saw on here a few months back. Do you thinks it’s appropriate to get tipsy in your own home with your spouse if you have kids? The post I saw basically said you should be sober enough to drive at all times in case of emergency. Although that sounds good in theory it also seems impractical to me. I’m definitely not advocating getting blackout drunk… just tipsy, like splitting a bottle of wine after the kids are in bed. Do you think that’s not ok?

In early second trimester and haven’t told team yet but we meet in person and I’m quickly showing and growing out of my normal clothes. Would you wear baggier/bigger clothes (seems potentially frumpy, fewer options) until ready to tell, or just rock the bump and maternity clothes (more put together and more comfortable)?
