I got married to a white American girl we have a kid now. My family is visiting from India and she is not ok with them staying for prolonged periods 3 weeks at a time in this case....contd
With Biden being elected, everyone is now talking about student loan forgiveness. How likely do you think that is? I graduated with $120K in student and parent plus loans and will be done paying next month (took me 2.5 years). I’m first-gen, my parents were financially illiterate, and I was naive so that’s where my debt came from. I worked hard to pay them off so it honestly doesn’t sit right with me when others expect their loans to just be forgiven. That’s my rant; thoughts?
Would you get a COVID Vaccine? Suppose it was mandated by your school and you still had reservations about it.
Is there any hope for husbands to understand how hard and exhausting it is to be a mom? Or do we just need to assign them specific tasks to help manage things?
How in the world do you ladies manage to make dinner every day? By the time i leave the office, do pickup at daycare and come home it’s 6 pm and my babies go to sleep 7-7:30. Like how?? I feel like such a bad mother I don’t cook and we basically live off takeout 🥺😣
My gf and I are early twenties. She lives in the city with a friend. I live at home. Most of her income goes towards rent and eating out/doing stuff in the city, and I save/invest aggressively, so we have quite a gap in net worth. I try to tell her to cut back on spending but she says it’s what makes her happy. Any one had a similar experience/ have advice?
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
New attorney here! Currently, I’m a child advocacy lawyer, but I want to get into family law (divorce, custody, etc.). I’m constantly advised to steer clear of family law; but is it really THAT bad??
What are you paying for daycare/nanny costs in NYC? My wife and I are expecting our first child last this year and I’m curious if what I’m finding online is accurate.
Started seeing someone and while we both are well educated and have good jobs, it’s clear that there’s a big difference in our families’ economic class. I come from top 1% and my parents will be setting up a trust fund, have designer bags/clothes, am well traveled—whereas he comes from blue collar background, wears simple clothes, has not been outside the US, etc. Has anyone been in a similar situation where it presented problems?
Hey moms! Trying to see which baby breeze product would be a life saver to add to registry? I do plan to breastfeed but I’m sure I’ll switch to formula at some point. Would you all suggest the baby food maker, the formula pro advanced or some other product that would help the husband and I in the long run?
Need some strength 🐠s - my wife and I just had a baby a few weeks ago and her fuse has been so short it’s scary. I know postpartum rage is a serious thing but these episodes are hard to fend off and support her through. She’s also making digs that make it sound like I’m a horrible dad/partner and haven’t supported her at all through this (hard not to be hurt because this isn’t true). Any tips on how to support her through this when she’s constantly criticizing?
currently pregnant..My husband is telling me that he's not willing to change our future baby's diapers....is this reasonable to accept?
🐠 who have kids late (maybe after 35?), are you worried that your teenage kids might be embarrassed by how old you are? Other moms/dads are in their 30s, nice looking and cool, but we are in our late 40s even 50s.
I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.
Moms, would you or have you elected for c section over vaginal birth? I am not sure I want to go through the labor pains :(
I like my friends kids a lot but I’m not sure I’ll ever want my own. I’d love to just be an auntie. Except my SO wants them. Pretty sure there’s a pending hard convo. How did you know you didn’t? Besides those who always knew… Be gentle 😔
I know this has been asked 1047 times but I’m so beyond frustrated at this point. I CANNOT find cute maternity clothes. I’ve looked at pink blush, seraphine, H&M, all department stores, asos, target. Literally everywhere. HELP. I need clothes that aren’t just sweatpants that I can wear possibly to work and out of my house.
Does a senior VP in a relatively "no-name" company (like Johnson and Johnson) make more than an entry level Program Manager in Google?
Has anyone been in a long term relationship where wedding just got pushed to the sideline-- committed, happy etc, and thoughts about having a kid come up? Did you have regret having a kid prior to getting married? Always wanted to wait and do things in "order" but at this point between age, pandemic and life getting in the way feel pressured to just start trying...

Finally built up the courage to take full advantage of the beach by visiting the gf on a weekday. At 8:30pm I got an email saying be back for a project by 8:30am tomorrow. She lives 4 hours away...

Leaving my position @ Big 4. I want to list some of my engagements on my LI profile, and get some recs from clients who liked me. Thoughts on posting client names or refs?
When you land home after a long week at the client only to hear the captain say, "Uhh...ladies and gentlemen...uhhh...gates occupied...uhhh."

New year resolutions are silly. I'm mostly talking about the habit changing goals. Why don't you start them now? Or three months ago?
When the client sponsor asks you to move today's meeting to tomorrow. I was supposed to fly home in 3 hours. 😞
New in consulting and on the beach after my first 6 month long project. Makes me wonder if I bombed it? Anyone ever had those thoughts?
