The following things keep showing up in my yard at least 1x/year. Any ideas why?

Had a baby in 2021. Will I receive an additional $1400 for the baby or is it based on 2020 tax info? What about the child tax credit. Heard it will be a monthly payment as opposed to a credit at the time of filing taxes
Anyone have parents who constantly disapprove of your career choices? I’m trying to quit consulting for better WLB and pay but my dad gets mad every time I bring it up. I don’t know what to do.
Just started to research about how to get pregnant etc. so please excuse my very little knowledge on this topic - is it better to take folate or folic acid when trying to get pregnant? Is it bad to take both? The articles I’m reading are not really straightforward either way...
Ladies, what has been the most worthwhile investment in yourself or things that improve the quality of your life?
Husband is begging for a baby and I’ve held him off as long as I can. Not kidding, he called OBGYNs this morning to get answers to questions I had and help me start looking for a physician. I am very maternal and love babies, but I value my independence and my career. I’m 34 and don’t think I’ll ever be “ready.” Anyone else go into motherhood with hesitance? Im scared for my identity, for my marriage, for messing up my kid, for missing opportunities. It feels like more grief than joy.
just sent my kid to daycare and he has a cough but no fever. feel the mom guilt but what is the absolute cut off for keeping them home ? if he was home it would just be non stop tv (he is 2) and I wouldn’t be able to work.
Have you ever had family members rent a place you own? Are there loopholes/ways to pay less taxes? I’m intending to buy a place in a country (original home) where it’s 20% taxes on your rental income and having my father (same last name) live in it and pay rent. Or who would be the right person to ask for advice - a tax professional?
Biggest adjustment on going from one to two kids? Currently considering trying for our 2nd (and last) kiddo, so curious to hear how you managed it, or what some of your biggest learnings were. My first is a year old, and I’m 35, so I don’t want to wait to start trying if we’re going to try for another. I’m overwhelmed at the thought of having returning to the newborn phase with another child to look after while trying to keep a job in a pandemic. 😬😵
Is it an issue for paraprofessionals to take food off of a child’s tray if the child chooses to not eat it? I found out one of my aides does it and I don’t know if I should tell her to stop

Help! Best places to purchase maternity clothes for work? I usually work from home but just need a couple of pieces, business casual and dresses for some of the upcoming events. Not too expensive.
Going back to work and need advice on how to wean baby (3 months old) off of contact naps during the day. He sleeps well in his crib at night and doesn’t need to be held but during the day he’ll only nap if held. Any tips? FTM here!
So is now the time to attempt to potty train my 2 yr son? My maternity leave is no longer as planned. I have a 10 week old and my husband is working from home. But we are stuck inside.
So my mother in law has a lab who sheds a ton and kinda makes a mess of a place. We've put our foot down about having him in the house because of those reasons and we also have two cats. Cont

2021 is coming... what new tools are you going to adopt? Any of your best tools for brand content management? Why?
Today my kid told their Zoom class that my job is to “calm down mad adults and help them agree on a story”. So yeah...I’ll stop talking internal creative reviews on speaker.
Moms, please share your experiences with your children receiving early childhood diagnoses (ADHD, ASD, etc.). Considering seeking an evaluation for my toddler, but I don’t want to jump in without fully considering the ramifications of a label that may follow them around for life. Your help evaluating the positives and negatives of receiving a formal diagnosis from a professional would be much appreciated.
I am failing to control my 3.5 year old’s behavior issues, he breaks things, throws stuff and finds it funny. I have tried keeping his favorite toy away each time he doesn’t behave, but nothing seems to work. He gets cranky and does things like spitting, hitting his 7 month old baby sister. I am really concerned about his behavior, any suggestions? I heard about behavior therapy (counseling) any ideas on that? Would love to hear if anything you tried and worked. Thanks a lot

Ladies, I am so down right now and could use some advice. I was at Deloitte for almost 5 years and started to an analyst, was promoted to consultant and was on track for SC when one bad project and a really awful manager derailed things for me. I went industry and did marketing which I liked a lot, but could not sustain the pace and demands when my team was cut in half due to Covid. I was working the job of two to three people and the workload quadrupled. I worked nonstop. (Cont’d)

GF and I are moving in together soon (4 months) after a couple of years in LDR but have been together for 6 years total. She lived with her parents for 2 years while finishing up her doctorate program. Her parents are very conservative and against us living together without being married. We’re thinking we’re going to do it anyways lol. Given their conservativeness, am I expected to ask her parents for permission for us to live together? Both 26.
Luckily we had our own FB to keep us busy.
What should I do? I finally brought up the idea of marriage to my boyfriend of 3 1/2 years ( we have been kinda living together during the pandemic). He said after this year he feels as though he is further from wanting to commit than ever. I love him and am honestly very afraid of being single and alone again. Should I try to fix it or cut my losses now?

Anyone else heard “tap out” being used in the active sense? I.e., “I’ve had a nice time here at the bar but I need to tap out.” I kinda like it. Sort of a spin on the passive “I’m tapped out.”
