I've been traveling every week for two years, regardless of whether I have in-person meetings. Does it ever stop? Is it unreasonable to go to the firm after 2 years and ask for a travel break?

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

I just joined Accenture, and I was told that I need to ask my manager for permission and justification for a Mac. Do I need to wait until I’m assigned to a project, or should I just ask my normal manager? Also, am I good to just start downloading tech (Python, Sublime, etc.) I need for my job, or do I have to wait for that?
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?
How much do you target in your kid’s 529? Given tuition inflation, and the vast cost difference across public and private schools, how do you think about a target number? I currently have ~$60k saved for my 8 year old and I’m wondering if I’m on track.
