My father apptly invited my cousin to thanksgiving. The cousin who took my baby name bc she “wasn’t sure it would get used given ‘my situation” and “wanted to make sure it got used since it’s such a beautiful name.” So I guess I’m having dinner across from a 7 month old baby with my dream baby’s name. Super weird to resent an infant on thanksgiving, but that’s where we are..

Hi moms. I’m 8 weeks pregnant. My husband told his parents about it today. They reacted in the worst possible way! They asked what I was thinking and that he should talk to me about getting the baby aborted!! This baby wasn’t unplanned in any way. We really wanted a second child and glad that it happened without needing any interventions. I’m really mad right now! And just their words are making me cry! I expect 0 help from them to start with. But don’t need this negativity right now.

How much stock do you put on benefits? I have two offers with stark differences in benefits. Job 1: role I want, but benefit sucks (2 weeks paternity leave, 20% coinsurance). Job 2: role is okay but higher level and great benefits (16 weeks paternity, 0% coinsurance, 5 more days of vacation). Total comp is the same though. I wonder if I should just focus on role but Job 2 is a large company, so I can move around after 2-3 years I’d expect. Thoughts?

I have a cousin who occasionally asks me to watch their baby while she and her husband go out. I’m very happy to do it and it doesn’t happen often but she always attempts to pay me / buy me a gift as a thank you. I always refuse the money but she’s started sending me gift cards. I was thinking of just using the gift cards to buy something for the baby and giving it back to her but is that weird / rude?

Hi folks, question on DEI Context: my company at the csuite level is full of white men (and 1 female as CHRO). I am in the DEI group that was formed to give more guidance to leadership. They are open but struggle to justify DEI (because all white, how can they know!) How do I get them to understand that 1) representation is important, 2) white men from varying white dominant country =\= diverse, 3) their white struggle easy vs. minority , 4) diversity hiring will not make talent pool worse?
