I don't understand the need to drop MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) to take out 30 guys in caves. Wouldn't a surgical strike do ?, feels like a bazooka being used to shoot a pigeon ....
I should be more sensitive but I think it's fucked up to start a new job and tell your boss after a week that you will be out on maternity leave in 4 months.
New ToysRUs commercial about a kid and his dad has a twist ending and it WILL make you cry. Damn you ToysRUs... damn you.
Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?
I am not from USA and English isn’t my first language so trying to understand is my nanny being out of line here. Our nanny has been extremely defensive to any feedback and has comments to an extend she compares everything with me and hubs. Few examples - you eat healthy, I am really jealous what money can buy. Why are you breastfeeding your kid I formula fed my son and let him be independent do you think he is not okay ? (For spending hours on call with LC). Additional screenshots

Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
This one is for the moms: my husband and I are trying to conceive and I’m wondering what life will look like once we have a baby. I have a job where I work completely from home/remote, and I’m wondering if I will need childcare services of some kind. Is it possible for me to handle taking care of a baby while working a full-time job from home? Is it crazy to think I can do this myself?￼ I’d like to think, if it’s necessary, I could adjust my work hours and do a little when my husband gets home.￼
I washed and folded the baby’s laundry, washed the bottles, took out garbage and konmari’ed half of my closet... all while hubby napped after dinner. Now I’m so annoyed I married a lazy man child 😪😤
Question for parents. How does the school system work in NYC? Do most people pay for preschool, then are there decent public K-elementary schools? Is it sorted by neighborhood or does your kid test into them?

Any restrictions taking parental leave in the first year of employment at BCG/Bain? Couldn't find anything published online about it and not ready to disclose (too early in pregnancy)
I feel like I wasted a morning. I’m pregnant, can’t focus on work, can’t take my adhd meds, in a new position with no support, and I’m nauseated all the time. I don’t know how to prioritize my work like I have in the past. Has anyone else been in this situation? Any tips?
Any tips for working w/ your father in this biz? 😬 see the huge opportunity to step into something that’s already built vs struggling in your first few years but I do worry about the father-son side
Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
