This is my little furball Sheero. He always used to chase me with his Little feat, wagging his little tail all around the house. Whenever I used to be busy on my laptop with work, he just used to sit on my lap and sleep like a peaceful baby. He was such a good puppy. He is now resting with angles up in the heaven and I miss him a lot ❤️.
Need a quarantine safe valentines day gift idea for my wife, dont have a lot of time to order online? We just had a baby if that helps
Expecting our first in about 6-8 weeks. Both my wife and I work at places with strong parental leave policies. We are considering staggering our leaves (I’d take a couple weeks right when the baby is born, then go back to work until her leave runs out, then go out) to save $$ on child care. Would also have a bit of family help during the first 4-6 weeks as well. Any experienced dads think this is a bad idea?
Let’s start a conversation around parental leave - how is it at your agency. Does your agency do enough to support new parents? What changes can we make in our industry to better support working parents? Share your stories about being a working parent.

How do you deal with draining family members? My wonderful mother takes on a LOT to keep the family life running back home (across the country with matters that can't really be helped from afar). She's stressed and every time we chat it's just an endless swell of negativity and problems - we all have our own issues and just having to listen can drain me for the week. She blows through boundaries because she needs to vent and I'm not sure how to protect my energy and still be supportive. Ideas?
My husband and I are planning on starting a family in the next year or two. I enjoy working, so I don’t expect to be a stay at home mom. As of now, neither is my husband. At what age(or months) did you decided to bring your child to day care. Who watch your child before then? Our family does not live close by.
This baby is competing with my Bose NC headphones. The baby is winning. (No fault or judgement to the mother.... I feel bad for her, she's a trooper).
