Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
Had a spontaneous spring clean tonight -- it felt great and makes me want to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle.

Mom is sick in India, unfortunately we are counting days. Can my US born daughter visit her, then can I request for my wife’s H4 visa stamping with a reason of assisting US citizen (child) to travel back? My wife doesn’t have valid visa so she’s unable to come down and see my mom. I’m finding ways to get her a Dropbox appointment.
FTM here and my baby will start daycare soon. Daycare asked us to prepare all the bottles on a daily basis. Between all the bottles and my pumping parts, it sounds like an absolute nightmare in terms of cleaning. Is there an easier way to do this besides running the dishwasher daily?
I was told to give one students “food rewards” when he does what he is supposed to do. I will only do this if others on task gets the same reward. Non-perishable, kid friendly, bite size food ideas?
Anyone here sponsors a child? Which organization do you go with and how has your experience been?

I'm such a baby. I say I hate hate PA. Then I chicken out if recruiters call me. I must secretly love this shit. I think I have issues...
Anyone else get irrationally bothered by spastic typers? The kid in the cube next to me POUNDS on his keyboard with sudden flurries of frenzied typing and slams on the backspace and return keys.
Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?

Bit of a unique situation. I think my offices FDD team is falling apart. Since covid, 1/1 partner resigned , 2/3 of SM quit, 2/2 managers quit. I’m a bit concerned with deal flow moving forward.

S& fishes, if I want to do Pharma & LS strategy, what is the role I should apply to (as a Sr. Associate)? The only role I see open in PLS is in Ops Strategy - does this mean only working on operations in this space? What is the keyword I need to look for - Enterprise strategy? Corp strategy? Or does it not matter as long as I choose the right vertical? Completely unrelated, can anyone tell me if they accept H4 EAD's if the role is not eligible for visa sponsorship? TIA!
What’s the best thing for a new associate to do to get on billable work? I was mapped to an industry I have no experience in; how do I start gaining experience when I don’t have the experience to get on these projects?
