I'm watching my 14 year old nephew for a couple of nights and want to make the most of the rare time I get with him. I could always come up with fun little activities when he was a toddler but what would a teenager enjoy?

Any suggestions on what we could plan to do together would be appreciated. Keeping in mind that Saturday is forecasted to snow up to 1.5 feet, so not a ton of flexibility for getting too far from the house.

Outdoor stuff in the snow is still going to be fun for a 14 year old. Maybe cook dinner together, if you have a Nintendo switch there are super fun games to play, or have a contest to find the best bad movie on Netflix and crack up commenting on it.

With teenagers, shoulder to shoulder is usually better than face to face…

That's a good way to think about it! Thank you!

Sky High. Take a day off work and school and go when no one is around at like 10am (if you are covid concerned). Jumping on trampolines for 2 hours is amazing. Great workout and sure shot way to #1 in the kid's heart. Make a day of it and get food and ice cream after, then nap and movie night. Best Funcle of the year award! (Assuming you are a guy).
I'm in my 30s and still do this occasionally for my bday.

ask him what or where he wants to eat all the time. young people love getting to exercise some agency (as small as choosing dinner option seems). If you’re on a budget, you can give him a list of options and ask him to choose

When my nieces and nephews come over for a couple of days, I tell them to think of something they’ve always wanted to do, and we do it. I give them ideas that I can manage, of course. Bowling, arcade room, try a new restaurant/food.

My husband and I are currently trying to conceive our 1st child and I have a feeling we will be successful in the next month or so. While all of that is exciting, I have a conundrum. I applied for a role with a different company back in May and the interview process finally concluded this past week. The interviews went VERY well and I have a feeling I will have a job offer next week.

Has anyone accepted a new offer while pregnant? Did you have enough LOA/bonding coverage? I’m in CA btw
