Heading down to the Springfield area to spend Thanksgiving with my in-laws and my mother-in-law wants to get up around 3:00 a.m. to line up for Black Friday Sales... honestly, I don't think I love anyone enough to get up that early and spend hours in the cold dealing with a crowd of people... Happy Thanksgiving everyone
Anyone here adopt a puppy during the infertility struggle? Husband and I considering it to have something positive throughout this situation and thinking the extra companionship would be helpful. I work from home. Husband has had many family dogs and lots of experience with it, I’ve had a family cat before. But not sure if it’s actually a good idea - wondering if it would truly help make us feel better and keep our minds off of the struggles or if it would just add extra stress. Thoughts?
So I just found out I'm pregnant and need to tell my employer eventually (it's still quite early). Since this is WFH, I can obviously keep this to myself for much longer. When is the appropriate time to tell my company? (I have a good relationship with them.)

What is a good 1st birthday gift for your own child? Leave me ideas below. For context, I already have a 529 account for her and another general savings account and plan to contribute to each of those at the end of the year. I know she’s probably still too young to care but still want to get her something nice and memorable
For those who are working because you have to how do you cope with feeling like you wish you could stay at home? it would be my dream to stay home until my child was at least 4 but it’s off the table for me because I am the breadwinner. Sometimes it’s very upsetting for me and today is one of those days.
Currently have a 5th grade girl who is struggling with classroom behaviors and choices. When questioned, she says she wants to be a boy, but her parents won’t allow it. Obviously, she is struggling with more than making good choices at school. Her parents are very kind and appreciative of all we do for their child, but they are also clearly struggling with this. Anyone ever been in a similar situation or have some advice on how we can best support the student?
Hi everyone. This is probably not the best place to post this but searching for options everywhere right now. My mom is in an abusive living situation with the father of my siblings and I’m trying to find a place for her live. I live in DC and she has a stable job in Atl so living with me is not an option. She is unable to get an apartment due to poor credit and rental history. I’m willing to handle her rent, etc. If anyone is renting out a space or aware of someone who is please lmk.

Anyone have advice on reviving a marriage that hasn't gotten any attention for too many years because kids and work come first?
My husband and I are pretty good co-parents, which is great, but he isn't very responsive to my attempts to make time for romance, & the relationship has died down after 19 years. (Sex is good but the emotional connection isn't.) Last kid at home graduates in 5 years, and we may become one of those couples that divorces after the kids leave the nest.
Hi there! Anyone tried to wean a baby off thumb sucking before 1 y.o.? She only does it in her crib and I would have no problem with it if she didn't have constant eczema on her hands from sucking. I give her pacis instead but she spits them out quickly and doesn't bother looking for them bc her thumb is right there. Any advice?

Been speaking to a girl in the UK for a few years. Both have really clicked, are best friends who love each other, not madly in love, though she'd move to the US in a couple of years.
I know in my heart she'll always miss her large family, her mother, and especially helping her parents with her handicapped brother.
Are we both better off finding someone locally? Will she resent me when times are tough, when only my parents have access to our kids, or only visiting family for 3 wks/yr?
6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes .. I just spoke with paid family leave and I no longer qualify even though I had been paying into the program (thanks NY).. I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭

I need some advice, I’ve been in a newly created role within a pharma agency for about three months now and it is not going too well. There is little to no structure or direction from senior leadership, no access to client data, little to no billable work. Worst of all, no project is related to what I have been hired to do.
I would like to move on with a different agency asap, but I’m not sure how to proceed with such a short time here.
Any online classes, books, or resources that you know that teach conceptual thinking? I feel that the lack of feedback from my CD is hindering my progress to be a better creative.

I need some honest advice. I feel like people just avoid me socially / don’t reciprocate and I’m not sure why. I’m a 5’1 South Asian girl who’s objectively pretty attractive and has a good personality. I’m in an MBA program and feel like people just judge me / don’t want to talk to me and I hate to say it but it sometimes feels like it’s because I’m not tall enough or white enough / don’t have enough to offer socially. What do I do?

What are some great timeless women’s watches?
🙋🏻♀️ but I don’t care. My babies are everything
I hope everyone who’s raising their hand also feels like motherhood gave them a better outlook on life and their priorities, and maybe shifted the things that make them happy and satisfied. I haven’t married or had kids yet and am afraid if I were to have kids, I would regret it if it did stall my career :/ really hope it’s not the case
For those of you have fears about starting a family due to impact on your career. Don’t be so concerned. Your priorities naturally shift, and not in a bad way, you don’t become less career oriented. Your priorities shift in that you set more boundaries for work.
For example, I will always leave the office at 5:30 for daycare pickup. I will take meetings from the car if need be, I have dinner with my family, put my LO to bed, and then jump back on my computer if I need to finish something. These are boundaries that everyone will respect.
I know plenty of mothers in consulting and in leadership roles.
Some women choose to go into corporate services but I know tons of mothers still in consulting (like me). You don’t have to choose between kids and a career, it’s not necessarily easy, but then again nothing good comes easy.
I don’t feel it halted my career. But I definitely set boundaries now that I didn’t before.
But if family is your priority, you have to make your career work around it and set your boundaries. My thought process is to stay in consulting (because I love it) until it stops working for me. And when it stops working for me then I’ll look for other work or an industry job.
I don’t have any babies or not married yet. I feel like I’m behind.
Had my first at 35 as well. It’s not a race, you can’t really be “behind” 🙂
So Im 23 and It sounds like becoming a mother doesnt allow you to progress in your career as well as someone without a kid? Anyone wxperienced elsewise
Career not impacted, I don’t have a stay at home husband, home for dinner and bedtime, and I don’t have help 🙋🏻♀️. It’s possible!!
Majority of high profile women at my workplace do not have children and are sycophants to male leadership (while preaching girl power). Think not about the responsibilities of parenting but how much less %*~!* women willing to take after birthing and supporting a live human.
