Props to you, OP. Little moments like these (and I'm not calling this a sacrifice) are what your daughter will remember :) enjoy the weekend.

As a father I read this post and immediately put myself in OP's position and it made me smile. My son is just old enough to know what it is to give daddy a hug and it makes my life! Good for you! I don't travel as much as most of you guys but when I do, being able to make it home to put my son to bed and have dinner with my gorgeous wife reminds me why I do what I do.

How about trading consulting job for an industry job even if it pays a bit lower so you can put your daughter to bed every night? Or is it not worth it?

What is this nonsense? Behave like a parent first. This is common sense. You don't get a fucking applause for being a decent parent. Giving up a first class upgrade shouldn't even be considered a 'sacrifice' like you're making it out to be. Wow.

My roommate just went to see her boyfriend knowing he has Covid. I asked her not to go seeing as I’m not vaccinated and she said she needs to check on him (he has 3 roommates so he’s not alone). I told her that if she goes to see him I’m not comfortable with her coming back and asked if she could stay with him until they both get a negative Covid test. She said it’s crazy to ask her to not come home and said I should get a hotel if I’m that concerned.
