On ✈️ in front of a very whiny little kid with a great mom. "Kira, see all these other people sitting here quietly? You need to be a big girl and do the same. And then you get a cookie." It worked!

What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry!

I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?

Can someone smarter than me explain the mechanics of the child tax credit in the America Rescue Plan? If I qualify for monthly installments of the credit but fill out my W4 so my withholding is as close as possible to my tax liability, shouldn’t the credit installments effectively be offset by an increase in fed withholding so that my take home pay is the same as if I claimed the credit on an annual return? I know there is an increase in the credit, but I’m focusing on logistics.

I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting

Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible?
