Anyone's perspective on work shifted after they've become a parent? 👶 I really love my job and never really wished the day away, but now I can't wait for each work day to be over just to spend time with the little one.

Since working in consulting, I get anxious very easily and I am always second guessing my actions. Currently expecting my first child and I make a mental note everyday to not get worked up by small things as I heard baby can pick up on these traits in the womb. Has any mom went through this? Also what suggestions would you give for a new mom trying to juggle the stress of consulting but also trying to bring a kid into this world that’s not impacted by my unhealthy traits?

Anyone here have step kids? Would appreciate any advice on how you went about splitting inheritance amongst biological and step children. My wife and I are drafting our wills, and between my own money and family’s money (from my father), we have quite a bit to pass down. I do not feel my step children are entitled to the same split as my biological children, but my wife feels differently. This is a very delicate situation and I want to ensure a fair outcome for all.

It is SLIM pickings where I am to get a nanny right now. So far my options are (1) anti vaxxer, (2) 18 year old with solid practical experience but no professional experience, and (3) keep looking but possibly have to take an unpaid leave while we wait to get someone. What would you do? My mother in law is a retired physician and says based on the data around vaccines and transmissions, having the nanny be unvaxxed doesn’t really add to our risk but that still seems insane to me

Need some advice here…I’m about 3 months in and a senior male associate told me to just google it when I asked him a question. I told him that hurt my feelings. After apologizing that he said that meanly but was just offering advice he has completely stopped responding to me. Was I oversensitive? Just not sure what’s going on here…

Moms, this question is probably for our doctor but please be patient with me. Last Friday, I, my husband, 14 month old, and nanny tested positive for Covid. Today, 5 days later, all of us except our nanny have tested negative. Our nanny doesn’t have any symptoms and she asked if she can come to work tomorrow. What would you do? Honestly, I am exhausted. I cant be home with our energetic toddler anymore, He has also turned into a stage 5 clinger. The kid refuses to go to my husband 😭

Is there such a thing as a consultant to help with super picky eaters? Or have you had a super picky kid and overcome it? My two year old eats almost nothing - just plain crackers, milk and premade smoothies. The only advice my pediatrician has given was just wait it out until he’s hungry enough to eat what you give him, but he has gone 2 entire days without eating a thing and I broke. I’m so frustrated and I imagine he’s so hungry! Help!
