So I performed a good deed this weekend by calling a drunk stranger an uber ride. 23 year old kid who lost his phone and lost his friends. He actually climbed into my uber and kept asking for help. For some reason I let him in my uber and then called him a separate one. I even gave him my mask. Is there a way that I can contact the driver to see if he made it alright? I don’t even care about the kid but want to make sure I don’t get blamed for anything.
I know this topic has come up before but am asking a slightly different question. We have always talked about 3 kids. I discovered I was pregnant with kid 2 the week my city went into lockdown last spring. Entire pregnancy and first 9 months of 2’s life has been Covid. It has been such a vulnerable scary time and I don’t want to be that vulnerable again. I am vaxxed and it’s more about not wanting to be reliant on the medical system vs Covid specifically. Will I regret not going for 3?
Looking at leaving big law for a small boutique (I would be attorney 3). Current firm offers 16 weeks paid parental leave; small firm is 12 paid. Is 12 reasonable/enough?
Do your hubbies/fiancé/boyfriend/father of child expect you to do everything? Like they always complain how busy they are and don’t have more time to spend with child(ren). I’m thinking “oh you’re so busy huh?” while I have to fully commit to client work while being a full time mom.
Supply chain Folks. I have a friend who is looking to get back to work after maternity hiatus of a few years. She was a buyer. She wants to pursue CSCP. Will it help her chances of landing a job? Tks!
Has anyone taken longer than paid leave after baby? I am thinking about taking 6-7 months (a month or two past paid leave). Wondering if it is career limiting.
I have a giant 5 month old (22 pounds, 26 inches) who has already outgrow his Baby Bjorn Bouncer. Any recommendations for seats / bouncers?

Can anyone talk me though what the medical is like? I know I got all my vaccines as a kid but they are back in my home country, do you know what proof is required?

How do you navigate coming out to extended family? I’m probably overthinking this, but an older cousin of mine (50’s) invited me to a family get together this weekend. He said I can bring a guest. I’m considering bringing my girlfriend along. Should I tell them beforehand that we’re dating? Ease into it after we get to the party? I haven’t met this side of my family since I was a kid and don’t know much about them. Why am I so awkward?!
How much do you spend on bday presents for kids when your kid goes to a party? 2-7ish yr range. Not close friends, just classmates?

Anyone dealt with a parent that has dementia and lives far away (too far to drive and visit)? They live with another family member so not alone. Is there anything that helps the condition? Advice?

Kind of gross but has anyone done Baby Feet? I’m on day 3 of waiting for the peeling to begin 😬
I really need advice from moms with school aged children- it’s the third f-ing week of school and I’ve gotten two notes from the teacher about my 8year old. First - he doesn’t sit still so fell off his chair, struggles with keeping his mask on, calls out, and a student pinched him. I apologized and said I’ll talk to him about mask wearing etc., Second note today just is making me lose my mind! She said he passed a note to his desk mate saying stop putting your stuff everywhere, child wrote back.
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
Getting the vaccine tomorrow morning, just turned 17 weeks. SUPER nervous thanks to my conspiracy theorist dad but excited to protect myself and my baby girl!
