One thing that annoys me about dating is when girls are like I want 3 kids. I ask this on the first date casually. This one girl is a teacher etc. I told her point blank on some Kevin Samuels you need a man that makes 200K minimum and kids are expensive and she said you got it I want to spoil my kids smh. Guys only date girls that make over 150K tbh that’s my rule.

I forgot to change a kid's diaper. And my para reported me to my principal and my principal was quite upset with me. She said she wanted to give me a heads-up about the incoming evaluation. What should I do? I am working very hard but feel whatever I do is not enough.
I'd love to hear from Moms who's kids had a developmental delay, specifically speech. I called our states early intervention program today but I'm waiting to hear back. My daughter is 19 months today and maybe says 2 words, she babbles like crazy still but it's all nonsense. The doctor doesn't seem to have concerns in other developmental areas, she does all the gestures, points, waves etc. Walks just fine and eats like a champ. What else can I do? Did anyone have a good outcome with the programs

Just witnessed a mess on flight with flight attendants escalating a 2.5 year old not wearing a mask. We need to drop mask mandates for kids. It’s completely impractical and causing chaos for travelers and flight attendants. Europe is age 5 and that seems way more reasonable.

In escrow for a home, and Father in law wants to give us more cash so that we can reduce our down payment. Thinking is our property tax and HOA will go up over the years and don’t want to be stuck in my late 50s/60s with high mortgage. Very thankful for the donation, but would rather set aside as emergency fund/investment for us. What would you do?
Allegedly everyone else can do a better job managing COVID than Trump right? All everyone seems to discuss are the 210k+ deaths...What about suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, and divorces all skyrocketing right now? Would these numbers have been low if Biden were President and wanted even stricter lockdowns? NOBODY has a solution, there are only trade-offs.
Australian friends! What’s a good store to order baby gifts? I live in the US and want to buy something for a friend there. I figured it’s easier to buy directly from an Australian site that ships within that country

Want to use an offer to leverage a higher salary, those who have done this before - can I be required to show the letter? Do I have to say who the offer is from? Is the firm going to reach out to confirm the offer? I don’t want to lose the chance for the new role, but I would stay if they could match the offer. Please help!
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
Anyone left NYC during this COVID scare? My partner and I are discussing whether to leave the city for a few weeks and go up in CT to her parents’. Plan is to just stay remote and WFH there.
