Playing golf with a newborn - Just had our first and she is 6 weeks now. I’ve been getting over to range on Saturday morning for an hour or two but hoping to play some rounds now that weather is turning. Question — How do you guys handle getting golf in with baby responsibility? Any tips?
My father used to tell me about the responsibilities of becoming a doctor. What are the responsibilities of a doctor?

Do you remember when you were growing up and the neighbor kid pissed you off, so you destroyed your sister's room. Then your parents said it was OK, because you were angry?
Hi! Any recommendations for best places for a baby moon in the US in the July/August timeframe? TIA!
Has anyone seen that Bath and Body Works had to post all of their safety data sheets with their products and on a searchable BBW site?? The wall plug-ins and candles are “suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child”. How has then not made mainstream news??
For those fighting to get into or survive at MBB - keep at it! My early sacrifice at MBB unlocked an incredible post-MBB career where I feel challenged, enjoy the job, have enough quality time with my family to be an equal co-parent, and make more $$ than I ever imagined. Never give up!
Which company is better for woman who just returned from maternity leave. Holding below offers.
More concerned about WLB,WFH and flexibility rather than money.
Appreciate your views and thanks in advance.
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?
Anyone know which of the area defense contractors has the best benefits (I.e. paternity leave)? I’ve seen some that offer none and some that have provided 2 weeks. Seems that while perhaps the industry won’t match big tech, there has to be some out there that offer something more generous.
Favorite science show to watch as kid?
My wife said I could watch both of my kids this weekend or take one and go tailgating at Notre Dame....... 😳😳 I just purchased one of those child wrist leashes. Anyone other guys use those?
How do you dodge office baby showers or people pestering you to contribute to a baby shower gift?
No, I will not pay money you to breed. I already pay enough in taxes.

Has anyone used the "reduced work hours" during busy season (Jan) after parental leave? How hard was it to discuss with the team?
For those of you working big law hours while pregnant? How did you manage through your third trimester? I find myself more tired than usual and definitely not working to the capacity I was during my second trimester. It’s stressing me out!
Due in 4 weeks and freaking out. This is my second. For my first I never did child birth classes or wanted to know what would happen because it would freak me out. Now I know what it’s like and...
Does anyone love their team so much as if they were their own children? I keep talking about 2 people to my life partner as if I was a proud parent. 😬
Another "we are having a baby" day from friends. I used to get very excited for everyones babies but I think its taking a huge toll on me now. Instead of being happy for them I cried. I dont want to feel like this. I actually don't even know what am feeling except for I am sad. I don't want to call them don't want to wish them don't want to do anything but I ll have to put up a brave face and maybe send care baskets or host yet another baby shower

Employee stock purchase plans. My employer has an ESPP that allows me to buy stock at 5% discount on the last day of each month. There are no fees for purchasing the stock or reinvesting dividends. There is a $15-30 fee to sell depending on the type of sales order. Is it worth it to contribute and sell once or twice a year to take advantage of the 5% “free money” while also avoiding the risk of putting too much money in my employer? It’s a pretty stable utility if that matters.
Anyone with insights on recruiting timelines for experienced hired analysts? Should we look for help from our college?

Working 9-5 remote, looking for anything else to do virtually to help make side income. I currently serve in the evenings sometimes and make great money, but it’s exhausting on my body as they are 8 hour shifts after 5pm. I’m pretty skilled but I’m 21 so I just don’t know where to begin for side gigs/just joined fishbowl today. Anyone have any beginner advice?
Call me a disgruntled employee, but I have seen a sudden decline in the kind of talent Novartis is getting or has been able to retain. The kind of people I see in Novartis or people reaching out to me for a referral over all the digital platforms are for all the wrong reasons. The first question I get asked is "is it a hectic job?" Or "Do we get a good WLB?". And I see this translate into the kind of work some of my colleagues do too. And I see same callous attitude in many of my colleagues.

Pregnant wife is having small portion meals lately, so i asked why she is eating less than usual. She read somewhere that eating too much can lead to oversized baby, making the delivery more painful, so it looks like she may be controlling the portion because of this. Is not eating enough a cause for concern?
Do you think it’s worth waiting for Black Friday sale for strollers etc.? Or generally there are no discounts on baby stuff. Wondering if I should buy now or wait - baby is due in Jan.
Go to IKEA. Save some money and put it in baby’s account.
For our first one we went all out and ordered everything from RH. 2nd one repurposed it, 3rd one we became smart and bought from Amazon, target and etc.
It is hard to not go all out on your first child.

Honestly kids are expensive enough. Do yourself a favor and go to Buy Buy Baby for a baby furniture set. $12 on amazon you can do the gummy piece around the top of the crib if you’re worried about chips. My kid’s crib looked like a beaver attacked the top. So I wish I would’ve got the gummy rail deal.
We did Room & Board. It was expensive but we love it and plan on using the dresser for years.
Oooooh I’ve not heard of this one. Will check it out.
Everyone I spoke to said the quality of the furniture didn't matter to the kids. It really is just for the parents. If you have destructive kids, they will break things no matter how quality it is. So save the money and buy things as they grow. Needs change.
