CHICAGO - Child wrangler needed
Looking at people’s photos of skiing with their kids, dressing up their kids, making me really want a kid. Why is it so difficult for me? 😢
Probably not the right bowl. I have $240k in my savings account, recently became a father of 3 and my wife left her job so now one income. I make $215k base. Monthly expenses prob around $6.5k including my mortgage. Home equity somewhere around $200k. I've never been good at investing (always losing money in the market). Want to move to a bigger home but don't want to lose my cash cushion. How can I conservatively grow my net worth? Vague question but any help appreciated. BTW I'm 33.
Anyone have a child in Avenues NYC? Thoughts? Worried about English Literacy given they split time with second language immersion. My child is already fluent in Spanish so that is less of a gain.
Anyone done Certified Technical Architect program here ? What was your experience? How difficult it is to do with a full time consulting job for a single full time parent?
My mother’s B2 visitor visa will expire this year. Can she renew using Dropbox facility? Not sure if B2 renewals are disallowed using Dropbox.
Anyone have advice on reviving a marriage that hasn't gotten any attention for too many years because kids and work come first?
My husband and I are pretty good co-parents, which is great, but he isn't very responsive to my attempts to make time for romance, & the relationship has died down after 19 years. (Sex is good but the emotional connection isn't.) Last kid at home graduates in 5 years, and we may become one of those couples that divorces after the kids leave the nest.
SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!
I’m 26 now but I want to have two kids around 35. What are some options? I may or may not have a partner then but I don’t want to base this on that. Thoughts? Is it expensive? Should I just get a girl pregnant (kidding...sort of)?
I recently had my first baby and I’m trying to be as practical as possible, I did not get a bunch of baby stuff I just got the essentials, I think they sell you too much unnecessary things. I do appreciate people showing affection with gifts but feel kids now a day are over gifted. Would it be taken wrong if I suggest that for birthdays and Christmas instead of toys people deposit whatever they were going to spend in my baby’s 529 account?
Father’s Day gift ideas?!
F33 with PCOS. On a keto diet. Meeting my PCP after 3 years. Want to get a full body check. What all tests (especially given am on keto and want to monitor any adverse effects) should I request? Also looking to get pregnant this year. So what should I ask ?
I just discovered that Zelda: Ocarina of Time, a game that enchanted me for weeks on end when I was a kid, is ~25mb in size. I honestly can’t believe it—I’ve filed docs in court that are bigger than that. Also, this has nothing to do with biglaw other than that learning how to use emulators is what I’m doing during the tech slowdown. Just beat the Deku Tree!
I'm struggling with drafting/creating policies. Is that something that's taught through a certification or I missed in school? How does one get good/comfortable with writing policies or is there a tip I'm overlooking? (e.g. I need to formalize our Maternity leave policy and create a paternal leave alongside)
A child that kicked ,punched and spit at staff and students.He wanted was to go to the principals office. In the principals office he played with Legos, cars and toys. Rewards for bad behavior.
Hello All anyone know about company “Reply” in London,UK?
I need to understand paternity leave over there.
I’m announcing on social media next week that I’m pregnant..should I tell work people ahead of time or let them find out on Instagram? I mean I wouldnt tell everyone at work…but like partners/senior managers?
Asking on behalf of my parent who I think is severely under compensated and needs to go elsewhere:
- Associate Director at a F100 w/15+ YOE in this industry
- Has an MBA and a PMP
- Engineering background (foreign country) with program/project/portfolio management experience in current role
Currently making $130-$150K with like a $20-30K bonus.
What’s a realistic salary target? Always been a high performer but because English isn’t the first language I worry they’ve been taken advantage of.
Wife and I have second child coming and in the market for larger car. We like the Traverse, Enclave and Telluride so far. Should we buy lightly used or lease?
Hey I guess I'm the new kid on the block. Would love to hear some of what's worked and what hasn't for you guys.
I have a counselor that always calls a meeting when a kid complains. She doesn’t take time to talk to me about it, and I’m always in meetings. The kids are empowered here.
Question: Who NEEDS to be on set. Who actually comes to set? My agency appears to allow EVERYONE. I’m having trouble curbing the shit show.
Anyone moved from KPMG to another Big 4?
Is 430k reasonable for a 1bed/bath in NW or Arlington? I feel like prices have gone up...
Has anyone considered going back to school?
Life can end in an instance. Please make sure to spend time with your loved ones and live your life. The things we run after will eventually cease to matter. But memories and experiences are priceless and will stay with us forever. RIP KK ❤️
Anyone here experienced with creating indicators on Tradingview. I have created a solid indicator but I am struggling to get it to 'print' buy/sell signals and send alerts whether on telegram or on Tradingview.

I own a small studio and am looking to renovate the kitchen area (very small space). Anyone has any recs to hire a company or handyman?
All - I have a question. Lot of these smaller cryptos like XRP, SC, GNT etc. are bought using BTC or ETH. So basically, for you to be able to make money, not only these smaller cryptos have to go up but the corresponding crypto you used to buy them has to go up too for you to make profits. How do you circumvent that, if at all?
Any good in-house/brand in London?
Posting for anyone who may be just “looking at this page” or “sick and tired of being sick and tired”. I found a life through sobriety. It may not be perfect but I no longer HAVE to drink. I never thought it was possible. I wanted to state here that it is. It gets easier as time goes but if you’re fed up know that for many years I HAD to drink. I could not function without it. 24 hours was a miracle to me. If you’re like me you’re reading this and thinking “Bullshit!”. Just try 24 at a time.
