This was super uplifting and I though other dads would appreciate: baby hears for first time and just can’t stop laughing, and mom and little sister just loving it https://youtu.be/hgjC68KOjSQ
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

Snoo moms, does your little one also nap in the snoo during the day? Or do they nap in a pack n play etc. Also, do you put them in the snoo once they have fallen asleep (in your arms while feeding etc) or can one put their fussy baby in the snoo for it to work its magic?

At my new job, we’re told to get 8 billable hours of work a day on our timesheet. Even when I thought I had a lot to work on, the most I could get was 5 hours. I’m super stressed about getting in trouble, even though I have actively asked for more work. I was unemployed for 9 months during this pandemic and I now I’m super afraid of losing my job again. Is this a normal practice? Idk how I’ll ever consistently have that much work.

My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)

Australian news program used client’s copyrighted video without permission/license in production. News program claims it falls under fair use as they “critiqued” the video. Video was not newsworthy. It was fail video (America’s funniest home videos type) used for laughs, and to fill the hour with content. Any recommendations for client?
