My husband and I have admitted to each other on numerous occasions since the pandemic started that we are extremely thankful that we didn’t end up having kids. We watch our coworkers struggle with balancing work and raising kids and realize we dodged a bullet. We are happy with our lives where we can travel in normal times, and are not tied down by children. This has been a major breakthrough for both of us to recognize and express our relief. So, there’s one bright side to the pandemic.

I have a long flight coming up (with two layovers, and one of the flights is 8 hours long — red eye). My daughter is 2yo and I’m debating whether we should take the car seat with us or not. She’d be more comfortable in the plane and would be easier to “restrain” her… But the thought of carrying that huge and heavy car seat across four airports doesn’t sound very appealing. Any advise?

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
