My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?

Been crying at least twice a day on this new project. It’s been a month of bullying (but hey, you’re the new kid, we’re just joking, that’s how we roll). It sucks SO much.
Anyone struggled with this? I’m 30; I like the idea of having kids but also was never my “dream”. I get along with my friends’ kids ok, though I’d 100% hire a lot of help(love my career and would like to retain some freedom—the idea of not going to be able to go away for a weekend w my girlfriends/my husband with no kids troubles me).My husband LOVES kids, he takes charge of nearly all of the house chores, so I’d have support. People say don’t do it unless 100% sure;I feel I’ll never get there?
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?
I need advice, has anyone been in a similar sit? Met a guy on Bumble in March. He had gotten out of a 4 year relationship in December. We dated for 2 ish weeks, on date 3 we made out and touched (no sex but we both came). After the date he tells me he needs time to himself, his mind is all over the place. We’re May and he reached back out (to congratulate me for my sisters baby). Said he’s in a much better place mentally, wants to meet up. CONTd in comments

Parent 🐠 How much do pay teenager babysitters (capable of driving) for the summer. It’s for 2 kids, age 7 and 9.
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
Those with young kid(s) under 2: how do you do bedtime routine and get dinner on the table? I stop work at 6, bedtime is creeping towards 8 pm, and struggling to understand how families prep and cook dinner while tending to child plus bath plus bedtime routine and still have hot meal after kid goes to sleep. How do you all do it? Notes: husband cooks many nights but can work late until bedtime and then I have to do it all (kid and dinner). We aren’t big meal preppers…and do takeout 2x per week.
Hey ladies! I’m wondering if anyone has had luck finding leather pants (or even coated jeans) in 00 or 000? I’ve ordered about 10 pairs now from my usual brands in the smallest size (Paige, Mother, Joes, Hudson, Good American, Agolde and even Abercrombie) but the leather pants all seem to be larger in size than typical jeans. Thanks in advance and happy Wednesday 💃🏻

How do y’all quiet the noise in your head that’s telling yourself “they’re only interviewing me to check off the diversity box”? Heading into another round for a VP role that I feel unqualified for. It’s hard to not think this is the classic Rooney Rule at play. Would love any tips.
My h1b was approved from oct 2019 and i was on an f1 visa before that. Does that mean my i94 has expired? It says D/S for expiration date currently. I have not got my stamping done, yet.
H1b 🐠, my law firm tells me that they're going to file for an H1b extension (first extension) for me now, though it's a whole year till my H1b expires. Which means I'll only have 5 years of H1b. Does this seem right to you?

What are the drawbacks of filing a second I485? For context I’m ROW and filed an EB I485 in May last year (Texas service center so still waiting). I am now eligible to file I485 under the diversity lottery program, that would be faster and no need to stay with my employer after GC
