Do they still fit in an infant car seat? Would do that if possible and plan on baseless install. Depending on where you’re going you might need to obtain and learn how to use a locking clip to seatbelt-install the car seat.

Get a bassinet seat on the overseas flight! I didn’t know this was a thing pre-kids but was amazing for a few trips to Europe with when kids were babies. Allows you a place to put down the baby and typically is free or very inexpensive

We had planned to take our then nine month old on a trip from the Midwest to France a few years ago. In the end I was having almost panic attacks at the thought of the plane ride (she wouldn’t sleep anywhere other than her crib). In the end my husband went to see his family in France and I took the baby on a two hour flight to visit my parents and I think it was the best decision. But you never know, your kid may do great! Get the seat where they put the bassinet on the wall, bring portable white noise, etc

How do you divide your time between your kids? My second is an extra needy and demanding, high spirited kid. My first is laidback and easy going. I always feel like the eldest gets the short end of the stick and never gets enough of my attention even tho she’s always been more attached to me than my husband. She never gets one-on-one time with me as it is since her sister (now 2) is still super glued to my side. Any suggestions for juggling this? Or to ease the mom guilt?

I am newly pregnant, vaccinated and boosted, and trying to figure out if I need to stop going into the office and increase the medium level of COVID precautions I had been taking. I had previously been going in 2-3 days a week and working remote the rest of the time. Also my husband travels a fair amount for work and idk if he should be trying to limit travel/office time as well. Will ask my Dr too but curious what level of advanced precautions others in this situation have taken. Thanks!

Ladies, would this be a huge turn off? “Lives with parents, can’t date him” type thing? I’m an only child and my parents bought a new house in 1996 with an unfinished basement. Since I’m paying their house off anyways, I finished the basement and made it incredible. Designed the whole thing myself and have everything I want. It has its own entrance, and the backyard is beautiful. I have an amazing, large double shower, and a beautiful kitchen and nice closet with laundry.

We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???

Have an offer in the Bay that is 100k -- moving as a single late 30's male. No debt. Though I really like the job, I'm worried about the salary -- I keep hearing that's not enough money to have a decent standard of living. I would plan to get a car eventually and though I want a 1 bedroom, I'm not opposed to a roommate. First time I've had to rethink a great opportunity because the money was not enough -- can't tell if I'm being overly sensitive to other people's money needs or not?
