A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!
Ladies, do you think getting passed over for promotion due to maternity leave is fair? Obviously makes sense not to be promoted if performance is lacking. However, if you killed it for ~30 weeks cont.

A bit of a sensitive topic. My son is 3. One of friends has 3 boys and she asked me to babysit them one weekend. The middle child, 10 years old is very handsy with my son. I’ve asked him multiple times to not carry him or hug him since he doesn’t like it and the boy still manages somehow to find his way to be physically close to my son. Today while I had my back turned to them while they were all eating at the dining table I heard a kiss sound and turned to see the… Cont’d below

I currently work as a personal injury lawyer at a small law firm, 5 years experience, graduated from T30 law school in 2015. Our subject area is pretty niche, and I am looking to branch out. Not big law, but a different subject area, and hopefully something with a better work life balance (have a small child with hopes for more). Open to leaving the law for a compliance/HR/other type position. Am I even marketable for something like that? Am I being unrealistic?
