Question for fishes who love WFH and claim that they get to spend so much more time with friends and family b/c of it: do all your friends and family also WFH and have the same increased availability as you do? For instance, I WFH, but most of my family and friends still have to go to work due to the nature of their professions - so it's not like I can call my doctor friend or my electrical engineer friend and invite them to hang out during the day.
Anyone tried or have a Tonal? Thoughts? How are the class? Do you feel fitter after using it? How long are workouts? How often are you using it? Is it addictive and fun like peloton? We have a peloton, which we love, but aren't disciplined enough use it consistently. Need to get back into the fitness game now that the pandemic is over. Like the gym / classes, but the time saving aspect of at home workouts is great and better for us right now with baby. Might get this as gift for hubby.
For those newborn, working parents, at what age did you send your baby/child to daycare?
Do you all ever have guilt calling in a sick day? I have a pretty bad cold and 5 months pregnant. I’m just so slow today and want to nap. Working from home
First time expecting mom here. I have a very noob / stupid question. So I read that you're not supposed to let the baby sleep alone in his/her room when newborn. So then what is the point of the nursery?! Wouldn't it make more sense to have the crib/bassinet in the parents' bedroom, or have a bed for an adult in the nursery as well? Confused here.
I just found out i’m pregnant and went to get a check up. my blood pressure is elevated (144/93) and try to eat healthy and stay active. I’ve been under chronic stress with a full time job and a toddler. my husband also has a habit of screaming when he communicates. His entire family yells/ screams and it seems like it’s a habit. I’m just wondering if all of this is taking a toll on my health.
Has anyone had a baby and took leave in CA? Having a lot of trouble with the state leave forms and need some guidance!
I’m having a bit of sticker shock here as I look at my step son’s and step daughter in laws baby registry. They are asking for a stroller that is $600 an extra seat for it which is $250. It’s been a long time since I shopped for a baby. Am I that much out of touch??Is that normal to pay that much or am I being cheap?? Just wondering.
Thinking about putting on lingerie to put the baby to bed tonight so husband knows it’s going down as soon as he fades to sleep… I don’t have time to get the message across AND get the D while the baby sleeps because the baby can only sleep alone for like half an hour at a time. 😂
MIL turned up to visit newborn with a cold sore which in itself was very strange to me. - I was heading out so asked SO to ensure no handling or kissing of baby. Came home and she’s carrying him around and feeding him. What would you do- I’m horrified and feel angry but maybe I’m overreacting.
How do you teach a 4 yo when they start to lie? Today, my kid quickly put his lunch back into his box when his teachers turned around and lied to his teachers that he finished his food. They were even praising him on how quickly he finished his lunch today. And told us also that he finished all his food as well.
Advice needed please 🙏🏻 for datings apps: when should one reveal that one has a kid?? I’m 38F with a 5 year old and I get the impression men run miles from me
My one month old has horrible painful gas. When I spoke to our pediatrician he recommended that I space out his breast-feeding schedule to help with the gas. It really hasn’t done much and his gas is still pretty bad to the point of him crying screaming and he can’t sleep on his back I literally have to sleep with him on my chest in order for him to sleep. any tips on how to help relieve the gas
i’m about 7 weeks pregnant . I had gained about 7-8 lbs during covid and started losing of the weight but i’m back to square one despite eating healthy. I also have a belly bump already (second time mom). not sure if it’s just me and I should try harder to lose or let it go until after giving birth.
I think I am in an emotionally abusive relationship. I am married with a small child. I have been walking on eggshells for years, afraid of triggering my husband and his rage. He is constantly screaming at me or giving me the silent treatment for no reason at all. Interestingly enough, he’s a good father and my child adores him. I don’t know what to do, and I’m terrified of losing time with my child and the impact on my child longer term if I leave him. He won’t go to counseling. Advice?
Men, would you rather your partner stay home to be the primary parent while you are the breadwinner or share responsibilities equally. Note there are only 2 options 😂
My period is 2 weeks late. I’ve taken two tests and I’m not pregnant. I plan on seeing a doctor soon but have others missed a period? I’ve never and starting to freak out

Up vote this post if you are "on the bench" right now and here to fill the voids of nothingness in your working day!
Ever get annoyed at how happy the partners/MDs are at work everyday knowing it’s probably because they’re making $Mlns from the project? If I see one more “Happy Monday so blessed to be at this client” I’m asking for a raise
It seems to me that there is a big push to go Indy these days. What are the major benefits of going that route?

I work in insurance defense and we are getting slammed as far as workload and have been for some time. It’s nice because I haven’t had to beg for billable work and always hit my goals. My question is whether this has been the norm at other insurance defense firms. My other question is how other states are dealing with COVID restrictions on jury trials. Has anyone tried anything during the pandemic?
Any big law partners willing to give a glimpse at what your compensation structure is like and what your take home actually is? Associate comp is so transparent yet partner comp at my firm is extremely tight lipped. Eligible for partner soon and I have no idea what to even expect compensation wise, buy in, etc
I love New York, I’m just having trouble making sense financially of doing it. I could make what I make here while living in Florida…. Given Covid.
How do you explain to you SO the role of billable hours? I feel like a broken record talking about how BIg law and in general the legal profession is very different, but my SO doesn’t seem to get the stress. Loves my paycheck for sure, but doesn’t get that to move up in our profession that you have to put the “time” in and that some of that isn’t just the 1900 requirement. It’s getting very frustrating.
I wish Ad salaries were like NBA salaries. Each year you get a ridiculous raise no matter how shitty you perform. If you are good you get bird rights and no layoff clauses. And retire at 35.
The dreaded and awkward salary increase conversation that I’ve never had. I have zero intentions to switch jobs outside the firm. In most other industries I would have a clear manager to have the conversation with (still out of my comfort zone but I would know who to have it with). How do you guys do it, I don’t even know where to start?
How does sick pay work in the U.K.? Will I still get paid if I have the flu and take some days off?
