He’s already asked me basic design questions that can be answer by a Google search. When is it a good time to cut off your previous work place from relying on you to answer questions?

At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis

1 year in big4 MC and I’ve never felt challenged by tasks at work. I’m performing very well but I’m so bored by the lack of critical thinking that I don’t think I’ll last long in this role.
