My brother and sister in law put their five month old in daycare for the first time on Friday. Yesterday they get told by the daycare that there was covid exposure, so they test him and he’s positive. So he literally got covid on his first day at daycare. No symptoms yet but wtf. We saw them on Saturday with our two week old so now we are freaking out that the two week old could have it (my mother in law literally used the other kids burp cloth to wipe my kids face when I wasn’t watching).

I’m curious: At what number of booster shots too much for you? (I’m not sure about country differences but for example: UK 3 shots is now vaccinated and Israel is going from 3 to 4 shortly) I say this not because I think the vaccine is bad (stops severe disease) but I remember quite clearly the messaging was you take the two, you won’t get or spread COVID and therefore life goes back to normal. Now this clearly isn’t the case have you changed your stance?

Hey Folks - Any one use their FSA $ towards a dietitian or nutritionist? If so, could you share your experiences? I'm considering Working Against Gravity but I don't think we can use our FSA.

Tips for asking for a salary increase?
Been working remote since the beginning of the pandemic. Back in the office in January and trying to finalize childcare. Recruiters connecting with me for new job opportunities. Scared to even consider a shift out of my current company where I may have some flexibility bc I've been there for so long, but they're dragging their feet with giving me a well deserved raise. So unsure what to do. Shift now, or cont to negotiate $ at current job or hit the road and let the childcare figure itself out.
