Maybe tangential but why do you say “husband has been doing [pickup] for me all week”? Why is it your job more than husband’s job to do pickup? I mention this because it was - and still is - hard to shift the balance of responsibilities for myself but I’ve found that it made it easier to lean on each other once I reframed it in my mind that it’s not MY job to do drop off/pickup any more than it’s my husband’s

Sometimes yes and sometimes no. He's in construction so he could be done at 3pm or 7pm depending on the day. So some weeks, I do all drop offs and he does all pickups. Other weeks, I do drop offs three days and pickups two days. He tries to make sure any work needed later in the day is pre-scheduled so we can plan accordingly. But last week, he did all pick ups even though it was a week that he had stuff like substantial completion inspections later in the day. He had to leave two inspections early because of my work.

Hey moms, How do you usually split up work after a baby with partner? We’ll have parent’s support for a good long time and I know that might mean we could slack and then rudely be awakened by reality after they leave in a few months. So want to make sure both husband and I are part of it right from the beginning. E.g: should I be thinking of asking the husband to get into the habit of putting baby to sleep every night? Etc.

I need some help. I need to lose 40 lbs. 5’2, 170 lbs. i started working out more but then stopped because I was miserable doing it. Decided to focus on diet and I just end up binge eating. WFH also makes it harder to be active esp when working out (the cardio at least) makes me so miserable. I do walks sometimes but that obviously doesn’t burn enough to mean much. At this point idk what to do. Keto helped in the past but now I can’t even find the drive to do that! What do I do?
