My 6mo baby started daycare 3 weeks ago. We raised concerns about the frequency of feedings during the day (she was going for 5 hours without getting a bottle). The teachers assured us that would not happen again. Today I noticed she’s went for 5 hours without being fed. I cried so much and I just can’t sit here and eat knowing she’s not eating. I am hesitating calling again because I don’t want to be that parent and potentially create a hostile environment for my baby. I just don’t know wtd 😭😭😭
Has it become common practice for leaders of a team to make less salary than their direct reports?
Has anyone taken part in sperm sorting at their clinics to give a better chance of choosing X or Y sperm in IVF? My clinic has a study where it can skew girl 60/40% but the working hypothesis is that the abnormal Y sperm will fall down with the heavier X sperm, so there might also be a higher chance of aneuploidy. Wanting other people’s results on this. If not, on IVF genders in general - are you getting more boy or girl normal embryos?
During 2016, I was selected for wipro as a fresher undergone training, but I did not clear the training exams, so wipro terminated me.During tht time I created NSR profile, after tht I joined another MNC as fresher. I never mentioned wipro exp as previous exp anywhere. Now recently I got a offer frm wipro. here also I did not tell that I was earlier termined by wipro.If wipro asks me to provide NSR details during my joining, does NSR have my previous exp in their db? Does it affect my joining with wipro?

Hi, UBS HR has said she has initiated offer approval in the system.
Does that mean offer letter release? How long does it take for me to get that from here?
I know Trump supporters on here are too embarrassed to side with him on here regarding “stop the count”, “voter fraud” etc. hence the silence.. I hope you can now see him for who he really is 🤡

I had a really bad day and been having some really bad days the past year due to the pandemic. Want to drop some motivation and gratitude for you all and for myself as well. Hope this is helpful for someone.
Some quotes I used to live by that I forgot about recently.
“Tough times don’t last, Tough people do”
“I won before, I’ll win again. I can win again if I just repeat the steps that I did to win the first time.”
If you wanna find a wife you should date me. All my ex’s got married right after they left me/I left them. 🤡
Just found out another one is getting married in the next 6 months after I broke up with him coz he was afraid of commitment. Lol
Yes, I’m salty.
Edit: just wanna add I don’t regret breaking up with him, but I’m wondering why I’m not yet married. Lol
I think my dad is in a deep depression and I don’t know how to help. I think his general “laziness” stems from that but my family’s anger toward him for not trying to find a job or contribute at all to the household has created resentment against him so it’s a vicious cycle. He doesn’t want to help himself (probably because he is depressed) and that makes people not want to help him. Any suggestions?
I listened to Motorsport 4 times this morning.
Wife me up I just wanna be a stay at home wife I just bought a guidebook to being domesticated and I'm learning to cook
I thoroughly enjoyed watching a woman with small dogs scream at another woman who had her big dog in the small dog park. I constantly see people bringing their big dogs to the small park area and think it’s so selfish… leave it to a random new Yorker to drop the heat 😂
A friend and I went for brunch. Everything was ok but she was quiet for long periods of time in which she seemed kinda checked out. After walking alone together for almost 1 hour during which she said nothing we met up with another couple of my friends. Anyway side from almost totally withdrawing to text other people when we went to a restaurant for dinner she spent 90% of the time texting and reading articles on her phone. The real kicker was when...
Buying a condo with an HOA - what’s the average reserve % you’ve seen? My HOA is 23% funded, and recently raised dues.
What do you do if you feel ugly and undesirable?
I feel like I can’t talk to my mom anymore. Every time I call her gets defensive and starts yelling if I ask a question.
Example: last night she told me she had an ask for something she didn’t support. Then today is telling me how she’s so stressed working on it. So I tried to understand what changed and why so urgent and she freaked out. *she’s self employed
I love her but idk how to talk to her. She keeps telling me I criticize her and she has to defend herself.
I have a friend coming over today and I’m making a charcuterie board for the first time. I’m having anxiety about it loll. I have a desserts board and a cheese and meats board. Shopping for all the items alone took forever and now setting them up seems like a huge challenge. Tips?
I feel envious of others my age who I came up with at a previous firm getting into great bschools. I’m grinding away, trying to prepare for the GRE, formulating my story and coming into my own in a new role. Why do I always feel like I’m behind?
Sometimes I feel really dumb 😔
I’m kinda worried about this whole Russia/Ukraine situation. Russia has about 120,000 troops near their border now and various outlets are quoting intelligence officials saying they expect an invasion in early 2022. Ukraine has a large military but not as technically advanced as Russia. Would not be a good situation. Anyone else following this?
There are days when I'm too lazy to wash the dishes or cook but I don't want to buy food. So I end up eating only cookies and microwavable popcorn all day. My new problem now is that I'm almost out of cookies 😔
Ugh. It’s so hard being this hot *flips hair*
If I don’t see my bf for a few days but they see other people in that time I get quiet moody/cranky with him. Is this an overreaction or am I not wrong for feeling hurt by the lack of effort?
I’m realizing why I don’t want to celebrate my 30th bday and it’s embarrassing. when i think back, i’ve always made a big deal out of my bday, having parties and bringing friends together, or traveling to meet someone. it feels silly to admit, but no one ever brings me a gift and it’s bothering me. i’ve never gone to bday or any party empty handed. at the very least i’ll bring a bottle of wine, flowers, gift card, etc. could i be doing something to attract this, or do my friends just hate me?

I think this is normal to be honest. You’re about to make a huge commitment so it’s natural to wonder about other possibilities. When I was pregnant I was constantly thinking about my exes and how different my life would have been if I had stayed with them. It’s just a major crossroads in your life and you’re looking at the alternatives. Doesn’t make you a bad person nor does it mean you’re making a mistake or doing anything wrong.
Congrats on the pending nuptials!
Thank you so much! I appreciate your response 🙏
Rub one out. Post nut clarity will help
Obviously don't do it in the office, do it in the office bathroom
There are going to be many people that you and your partner meet that you/they are attracted to and compatible with. The point of getting married is that you are committed to this one person who aligns with your values, is a positive impact on your life and willing to invest in you and themselves to build a good life together. The grass is not always greener; it’s green where you water it.
Thank you both for your response. This made a lightbulb go off in my head.
Go bone your fiancé
Well hawaii sounds amazing!
Remember your why's. Why are you getting married to her? If this might be a temptation for you the rest of your life. You should talk to your future wife about it
Solid advice. Thanks
Assuming you're crushing on a few colleagues and not just the one person all the time?
1 colleague in particular I suppose…but also just generally thinking about other women I could have ended up with. Doesn’t have anything to do with my fiancé, if that makes sense?
Isn’t that what bachelor parties are for?
You’re missing the point. I said “isn’t this what bachelor parties are for” you selected one part from my justification to harp on.
I wish you luck in your future trolling endeavors.
