We just had a baby shower for the teacher next door to me. Food is always welcome. Veggie trays, fruit dip, that kind of thing. Diapers generally make great gifts. And onesies.

Don't forget to ask her about what she maybe more responsive to. Small group or 1 large group or even a couple of small groups.

Gift cards or some cash for the baby and the mother seem to always work. Getting some parental books, purchasing a gift card to go to a studio (hair, manicures & pedicures.)

Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year. I have the opportunity to be a c-suite leader at a very small agency on the rise. Super confused. Money will be less, long-term opportunity will be more. Also thinking about having another kid soonish.

Hey moms, How do you usually split up work after a baby with partner? We’ll have parent’s support for a good long time and I know that might mean we could slack and then rudely be awakened by reality after they leave in a few months. So want to make sure both husband and I are part of it right from the beginning. E.g: should I be thinking of asking the husband to get into the habit of putting baby to sleep every night? Etc.

Does anyone else feel that itch or that in the heart feeling of wanting to go elsewhere and explore options, places and people?? Maybe I’m just feeling this because I’m in a very good job with a good boyfriend and a new home.... or maybe it’s the year long pandemic...but I have this nagging sense that I need to get out and live the wild. Try things and go places and explore art and culture. I’m terrified of living a regular, predictable life. Is it more crazy to go? Or more crazy to stay?

Last night's buy at 3096 goes 1.5 points over the objective that I called last night in Europe. There were two HWB long buying opportunities last night. New Target 3159.25 probably hit in today's NY session. We are trading Micro HWB's right now. Basically, we are goin to hit new highs and create a potential double top situation. Be careful being long at that new objective. If it's a dip into new highs situation, we could sell off violently, like we did yesterday. Bullish Above 3126.
