I pull both aside from time to time and tell each that they are my favorite. They haven't cross referenced this exercise with each other yet, so they each think they're my favorite.

Love them the same, yes. Enjoy being around each of them equally? Not always

Youngest child here and it was painfully obvious to me that my brother was always the favorite. Really distressing psychologically. Try to figure out why you have a favorite but most importantly try to treat them the same regardless

Finally someone from Deloitte used savage right.

Maybe I'm just lucky but I really truly love both my children equally. I actually sat down one day and tried to "wear the hat" of pretending I love one more than the other and it just didn't feel right.... I really could not choose and I feel thankful about that. I don't think it's a matter of loving but I do think there might be things you might have more in common with one child than the other - The most important thing is to make each child feel valued and loved for who they are despite any commonality you might have with one versus the other.

Hi I’m pregnant and due in august. I’m scheduled for the vaccine in two days and reading about (1) the side effects with the second dose and (2) lack of testing for those who are pregnant has me nervous about potential effects to my baby. Any thoughts on whether to get/not get the vaccine? Already consulting my doctor on this but figured y’all might be good to ask, as well.

I was so excited because the other day, one of my most difficult students typed into our Google chat that he thought I was a great teacher. This comes from a child who would be very defiant when in person last year. I have looped with my class from last year and that was such a great feeling! He even apologizes when he has been impolite. Now we are going back to in person instruction and I am unsure if he will be with me since his mom chose virtual learning all year.

Me and my husband were planning to start trying to have a baby from next month. With this COViD-19 situation right now we are thinking of we should wait for few more months and see if the situation gets under control. Data related to CoViD -19 in pregnant women and new burns is very limited. Plus hospital visit during pregnancy and having family around to help out may be challenging if CoViD -19 lingers longer than expected. I am 34 and hubby is 37 body clock is ticking as well - tough decision.

General CTC question here. If a qualifying relative does not live with a taxpayer claiming the child as a dependent for over half the year, can the CTC be claimed if the taxpayer is a legal guardian? Backstory: the dependent’s mother only has SSA income and does not claim the child for CTC and the child meets the rules as a qualifying relative. Legal guardian in this case is the Aunt. My thoughts are since the child did not live with TP (aunt), CTC is out and they can only claim ODC

I am starting with a new company in 1.5 weeks. I am due roughly a week after I start and they know. Issue is I don’t want to give notice to my current company in case the baby is early and I won’t be covered under new plan yet and they have right to let me go earlier than my new start date. Is it ok to quit the day I start new company? Or should I tell my boss earlier and hope he won’t ask me to leave sooner? I will be on PTO next week anyway.

For those of your who are currently pregnant and got the vaccine, how did you feel after? Did you have any side effects? Were you nervous or anxious to get it and if so, how did you conquer your fears? I am nervous to get the vaccine while pregnant due to no long term data but now with all the mask mandates lifting I’m even more nervous to not get it with the increased risk of getting covid. Any words of encouragement would be much appreciated! Currently 17 weeks along
