Morning rant : Why do we pay 50 percent marginal tax ? Healthcare was biggest argument and justification for me! But look where we are : No testing, no rapid kits or medical support for most cases and companies like shoppers just making a killing with 200 per PCR test which is available for free in US and many countries? Even US is giving free rapid kits, tests and N95 masks; the support in Europe is much better.

During the school year last year many things were different because of Covid. One thing that was unique was that we could wear anything we wanted, of course as long as it was appropriate. Was this the case at your school, and do you think it will be difficult getting teachers to “dress up” again? Curious?
Hi!! Any tips/stories on actively interviewing while ✨pregnant pregnant✨. (27 weeks) All potential positions are fully remote, and they are all Mkting Manager/Senior Mkting Manager roles. I have three 2nd interviews coming up, and I am struggling with when to disclose! Two of the companies seem very mom-inclusive so far, so part of me wants to be upfront/honest to build a positive rapport as well as potentially negotiate maternity leave that I would otherwise not qualify for this far along!

My 22 month old son has been extremely violent recently, mostly towards his father. He bites, scratches and hits my husband a lot, often unwarranted, and once in a while, does the same to me. He is also very aggressively shaking his head back and forth when he doesn’t want to eat anymore and swipes food away that he doesn’t want. It’s pretty monstrous. Not sure if this is normal for his age or if we should start looking at behavioral therapists.
