Thoughts on how I met your father? 🧐
Planning to have first kid and buy first home in late 2021 / early 2022. What are all things I need to plan for from financial point of view ? ( medical plans , down payment , investment options and priority , credit score etc. ) I am an immigrant and not very aware about real estate industry. Any advice please ?
We are currently on the waitlist for daycare/school for our second child (baby), at the same place first child is. A spot will be opening up soon but with omicron and how our older child's class keeps closing, I'm so torn. We currently have the grandparents watching the baby for now while we work but I can tell it's wearing on them, and it's a bit been distracting for me too. What would you do? Worried if we decline the spot it may be several months before available.

Hey ladies. Can we take a second to talk about friendship? As a working mother of two that works from home, I’m finding it hard to making friends or maintaining friendships. I’m the only one in my friend groups with kids and I feel left out and alone a lot of the time. Like I’ve been downgraded as a friend because I’m not as available. How have you built your tribe of support and friendship as an adult? Can anyone relate?

Anyone come back from maternity leave during busy season? I come back early February and worried about getting no sleep between working and baby. My baby currently doesn’t go to sleep without a lot of rocking/nursing, etc and this is usually around 10PM. My 2yo is asleep by 8PM, so I used to just start working at that point.
What would you choose? MBB (Digital practice) or Amazon PMT? Background: T15 MBA student, 7YoE as Mech engineer, long term goal is to climb ladder in Tech, married and have a baby Situation: I have a MBB and Amazon PMT offer for summer internship that I need to choose. MBB comes with FT offer, Amazon PMT will most likely result in return offer. If I go with MBB, I plan to exit to big Tech in 2-3 years. Y1 TC for both will be quite similar (around 230k). Thank you in advance!

Hi 🐠 I am 34 and single. Thinking to plan a baby using a sperm donor before I run out of time. How can I have a baby and support her/him with a traveling? Anyone in similar situation? Tips?
Has anyone here gotten pregnant with someone they were dating vs married to? Can you share your experience? Is that still frowned upon in 2022? I know culture also comes into play for some. Even though it seems we are more progressive now - none of my friends had kids before marriage. Especially those with professional careers etc. It seems like the whole first comes love then comes marriage and baby thing is still standard. Does it really have to be though? Especially if you're in your 30s.

How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD?? Thanks fishes!

I see posts all the time about the “tough” market going on right now but why cant recruiter and hiring managers give a chance to entry level. I mean real entry level 0-2 years of experience. I honestly do not feel bad for some recruiters that ignore messages because you dont have the experience they are looking for.
