At that age, the babies can’t do much as you know! 💕 I’d recommend nice stroller walks, signing songs, reading books and maybe playing with some water toys. Wouldn’t recommend going out to many public places due to parents age and age of the babe. If you’re parents are active, strap the baby to one of them and have them head on a nice light breezy hike.

👆🏻this. 5-month old mom here in San Francisco. We also used botanical gardens for a more contained walk and green space to spread out if you are concerned about city social distancing. Grandma and Grandpa also did a lot of baby reading and singing during down time.

They will be so content to just sit and watch the baby lay on the carpet and wiggle. And tot hold and feed. Sure, go for a walk, but nobody needs actual entertainment.

Ugh. I went on vacation last week for meeting my boyfriend’s family for the 1st time/his sister’s wedding.

But during this trip I just ate everything without thinking twice. Especially when his family would offer food cause I didn’t want to be rude. Now I feel back to square 1. Continued below..

Serious question: how do you "become" a top performer in a company? I get why some are viewed as rock stars or go-getters, but not how they do it or drum up the top-level support for it. Whenever I press to kickstart initiatives or push in a certain direction, the leadership is never interested in the actions or ideas. Instead, we just get told to bill hours and keep our utilization high. It's demoralizing how there is no support or interest in people that try to develop new areas or initiatives
