Gonna get baby's heartbeat tattooed
Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!
Hi ladies, I am an experienced, trustworthy, CFP®, actively looking to purchase a small to mid-size practice in the Chicagoland area. I am with LPL and part of a Hybrid RIA. I’m open to different acquisition options including partnership. I posted this on the succession page, but I am really interested in purchasing a woman-owned practice (being a woman myself and acquiring my mother’s practice in the 90’s). If anyone is interested or know anyone who is, please pass this along! Thank you.
Ladies, any experience and tips for new moms going back to consulting? Is it possible to manage working while putting baby in daycare? And of course, is it possible to stay local?
Any recs for office chair within $100 range? Asking for a baby sister who’s a broke college student. Doesnt have to b fancy/super fancy but something that r of decent quality… i know its a stretch to ask for this budget🤣
EY maternity leave, do you get 16 weeks plus Short Term Disability? Or just the 16 weeks?
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
Starting from blood work to getting pregnant, if everything goes smooth what is a timeline we are looking at?
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Just got the dreaded call from daycare that my toddler bit another kid. Any tips or resources to help with this?
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
Snoo moms, does your little one also nap in the snoo during the day? Or do they nap in a pack n play etc. Also, do you put them in the snoo once they have fallen asleep (in your arms while feeding etc) or can one put their fussy baby in the snoo for it to work its magic? FTM due in 2 weeks and playing out different scenarios in my head
Those with young kid(s) under 2: how do you do bedtime routine and get dinner on the table? I stop work at 6, bedtime is creeping towards 8 pm, and struggling to understand how families prep and cook dinner while tending to child plus bath plus bedtime routine and still have hot meal after kid goes to sleep. How do you all do it? Notes: husband cooks many nights but can work late until bedtime and then I have to do it all (kid and dinner). We aren’t big meal preppers…and do takeout 2x per week.
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
My spouse and I were planning on trying for our first (IUD officially removed!!) and a few months later I decided I also needed to change jobs. Ideally I wish I’d realized sooner - but now with two potential big changes on the horizon - should I stick it out in this job just to make it doable if I get pregnant? Or gamble on both huge life changes at once?
PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
