Has anyone started traveling yet? Client’s city has not had an outbreak and I’m slated to travel soon. I’m fairly nervous and refuse to fly so looking at driving 5-6 hours. I also have a young kid and my husband works lengthy hours so I’m pretty apprehensive but don’t feel like I’m at liberty to decline travel.
Thinking about staying married but living a separate life because we have a kid. So technically , being roommates until we can figure out what to do next. Pros and cons ?

Parent consultants, how do you get rest when at home? Either one of the kids won't go to sleep or if that works out fine, one of them keeps waking up at night. Can't recall the last good sleep night.
Moms, we are visiting family in the US, and we plan to buy diapers for our nine month old in the US. Should we buy Huggies from Costco, or the Kirkland brand? Baby is used to very soft Pampers here in Europe. Thanks!
My husband and I are expecting and both of us have moms diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD.) My dad passed away earlier this year and my FIL lives in Australia and is the nicest man. He’s just far away from us since we’re based in the NE. My therapist says your family doesn’t have to be blood related but I can’t help but feel sad our baby won’t have grandparents or a similar type of figure easily accessible/ nearby. Can anyone relate and/or have a similar situation?

Neighbor’s kid started practicing piano all day long. I support the learning but goddamn the kid sucks at it, and it’s hard listening to this trap house dubstep jazz all day long while I work, and I don’t want to wear my headphone all day as a solution. How to approach their parents? Can you even lower the volume of practicing piano?
