Has anyone used bright horizon’s back up child care? I’m currently juggling my two little ones (almost 1 and 3) because grandma had a procedure that sidelined her for a few weeks. We’ve never done care centers or outside help - so naturally I’m apprehensive, but with busy season ending, these final few weeks are proving to be too much. I can do in home or a center- but my nerves are holding me back, esp for my almost 1 year old.
Trying to figure out how to manage health issues and work balance. I just recently found out I might have herpes (waiting for the test results to come back) and I have been very and feeling like my life is over especially because it came from being cheated on and struggling with prioritizing my bandwidth and not knowing how to communicate it with my team. Due to stigmas around something as common as herpes I cannot comfortably share that with my team.
Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?

When I was 13, I was a very impressionable kid. An older cousin of mine had told me that everything on the news is a lie and that there’s always another story to historical events. This lead me to googling every single event in history with the word ‘truth’ attached to it so I could find out what really happened lol. I thought I was the smartest kid in my middle school because I believed we faked the moon landing, the titanic was a hoax, and that they put fluoride in the water to make us passive

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant and I went through a lot of anxiety and depression during my first trimester. This has impacted my relationship with my husband and especially my in-laws. When I am anxious, I need space. But my in-laws wanted to support me by coming over or inviting me over. All that was too much for me. So anytime I was at their place, I would literally just hide in one of the rooms with the lights off. My nausea was so bad that I was having a hard time even thinking straight.
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
