Just got the dreaded call from daycare that my toddler bit another kid. Any tips or resources to help with this?
Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
What was your utilization like after taking parental leave? About to take a couple months and I’m curious how much it will impact my year end utilization % (not that this will impact how long I take off).EY

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 ?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?

How are you going to celebrate Mother’s Day
Baby is 4 weeks old, is up every 1.5 hour and Eats every two hours. With feeding , burping, rocking back to sleep and then pumping cleaning bottles etc. I barely get an hour sleep at night..
I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
Can you please share the age of your kid(s) and how much you’ve accumulated in their 529s to date?
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
Do you pass the rat race onto your child? Do you feel like you have to grind to get your child the best resources, schools, etc?
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)
Gonna get baby's heartbeat tattooed
I simply want to say thank you to all the women in this bowl. I had a ton of anxiety through my pregnancy and the support on this site helped me more than I can articulate. My wife and I officially brought home a baby boy and I hope to pay forward the support to the next round of new moms. Women are heroes...

Hello Fishes, I have recently cleared the interviews in Deloitte USI. I had my salary negotiation, 9 days after the last interview. After this, suddenly I had received a mail asking me to submit my personal details on the Avature website, in which I am not able to log in. Reached out to HR, but not getting the link. The team who will release the OL told I need to submit those details, for them to generate and release my OL. Anubody facing this issue or having a suggestion for me?
