Hey all- looking for some travel advice. My wife and I just had our second kid in October and we overlap during the month of January for parental leave. We live in the northeast and want to take a trip somewhere warm for a week in Jan. Any suggestions? Florida seems like the obvious choice. I’m looking for ideas in specific parts of Florida where we could rent a house with a pool, walkable to activities for our 3yo son, maybe near the beach, etc. I’m also open to non-Florida ideas but US only.

I’m 11 weeks. Started interviewing before I knew I was pregnant and expecting to hear today about an offer (or not). Not sure what the parental leave policies are, but I feel weird starting a leadership position knowing I’ll be out in 6 months. Am I feeling guilt for no reason? Obviously I haven’t told them. If I don’t get the job, I’m still looking due to a toxic work environment and unrealistic expectations from the practice lead. (She calls PTO “partial” time off.) I also have a 1 year old.

Company considers the woman a riskier bet due to possibility she’ll take maternity leave — and considers the man less risky for his ineligibility to take as much leave. 🤷
