What car seat do you have? That’s great that you’re able to keep her rear-facing.
Yes, that is right! The resulting liquid is the paint.
If you know how to install them relatively quickly, I don’t think it would be a problem! Yes, good point about tipping extra for the waiting time.

Don’t listen to the shamers! That extra day of daycare sounds like a win for everyone.
Oooh, I haven’t heard of this!
As far as kids being “incredibly antagonistic to marriage,” I think it’s probably true for the first few years.
