My agency requires you to work there for 2 years before receiving leave 🙈

Omg. What agency?

Say no and continue to WFH. I think that’s our right in this situation. You shouldn’t be forced to find a nanny when your daycare isn’t at full capacity yet. You can make the argument that finding a nanny who’s commuting to your home each day from elsewhere isn’t exactly safer for your family. There’s a million ways to fight for this. Stick to what is going to work best for you.

How do you divide your time between your kids? My second is an extra needy and demanding, high spirited kid. My first is laidback and easy going. I always feel like the eldest gets the short end of the stick and never gets enough of my attention even tho she’s always been more attached to me than my husband. She never gets one-on-one time with me as it is since her sister (now 2) is still super glued to my side. Any suggestions for juggling this? Or to ease the mom guilt?

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

My husband has a strong sense of duty towards his parents - I’ve been very encouraging of it - making sure he has the freedom to be there for his family and parents in whatever way they need or want (e.g. sleeping over at his parents at least 2 nights, attending family events, making sure he goes to all their doc appts, maintaining a relationship with his sisters and their children, etc). His family and I are not from similar backgrounds so we have our struggles so I keep a distance (more below)

My full time job (not SMU) is literally making me sick-spent time at the ER.

My supervisor isn’t exactly understanding, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching for jobs, but it’s difficult since my background is diverse and not focused on one area of law.

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale.

Hey guys, I have been interviewing with GCP for a TAM role and heard from the recruiter that the role I was interviewing for is filled up. However he said he’s on the lookout for other teams and managers to see if they are interested in hiring. Wanted to understand how much time does team match take and if currently GCP has any opportunities for TAM? The recruiter wasn’t sure of the timeline and when I could expect to hear from a team and I’m wondering what will happen next!
