Has anyone put together gifts for new fathers at their company? We've had a couple of recent first time mother's but have a first time father coming up. I'm assuming most of the items can be the same as they were focused more on the baby or like door dash gift cards, but is there anything father specific i should include before he starts his parental leave?
Litecoin is like silent, unappreciated, chubby kid who'll one day grow up to be successful. This kid has outperformed both btc n eth in the last 48 hours. Whenever I get ready to dump it, it shows phenomenal resilience and steady growth
Ladies with kids, how did you know you wanted to have a baby? The idea scares me and I wonder how anyone feels they are “ready”. I also have this constant fear that the stress of consulting will impact my pregnancy when I do decide to have a baby..
Considering therapy. A combination of career self-confidence and shitty relationship with a parent. Any advice on how to start the process?
I really just want to get married and have a baby. Fuck all this other shit. But I’ll always work because being a stay at home mom is not an option.
I just learned that PwC offers $25k in surrogacy/adoption assistance per child for certain costs associated with adoption and surrogacy agreements! I thought it was for adoption only, and much less
Not a parent yet but curious - Is the daycare you pay worth the money? After these days WFH with kids
This is David Dorn, a retired police captain who was fatally shot by looters last night in St. Louis. He was trying to protect his friend’s pawn shop, and the entire killing was caught on a Facebook Live video. He was a father of 5 and a grandfather of 10. Don’t let his name be forgotten. Rioters damage a lot more than just property, they are killing black people too.
Leading all-male team. What’s a nice way of saying “Read the background materials, branding docs & myriad other documentation before asking questions because I am not your mother/reference librarian”?
Why is 1/10th of this bowl professionally relevant? All I see is baby this, boyfriend that, beauty this, and dating that. The main bowl where the guys talk is so much more focused on career and $.

Thoughts on prescription Retin-A versus cosmetic retinol products for wrinkles? I currently use Drunk Elephants retinol, but I’m wondering if the prescription stuff really works better? I remember taking it for acne as a kid and it being really drying.
My MD said “I thought you were pregnant, are you pregnant” after I went to the ladies room x3 during a 1 hr meeting. I have bad endometriosis and it flared that day. I apologized after my 3rd bathroom visit. I was bothered by his comment but not sure why. Would this bother you?
Etiquette question: Because of the pandemic, my friend is throwing me a « virtual » baby shower (and hopefully we can celebrate the arrival of our bundle of joy with friends and fam later!) There are some friends whose wedding I attended (and gave a fairly generous gift) - but they no longer live in my area. I didn’t have a formal wedding (civil only, no big party) so did not / will not ever be receiving gifts as part of a wedding. (Cont’d)
I have a friend who is considering divorce but that would mean that they have to share custody of their toddler and it would be cross continent. Him in Europe and her US. What do you gals think of this? Feasible? Bad for the child? It's not traditional but I think that if the parents are happier that the child will be better off. And it might be a cool experience that they could have dual citizenship.
I have somewhat of an odd situation: my father passed when I was 16 (25 now) and he had some kind of policy with pacific life. I don’t know if it was a typical life insurance policy because when he passed I didn’t get a “cash out” of the policy value. It is still with pacific life and I believe builds interest (?) I’m confused about what this type of account is and anytime I call pacific life to ask about it they act like they are very confused and make me feel like I’m committing a crime lol

Male client just told me to tell one of women on my team that her communication style is “too aggressive” so if anyone knows of a good bridge to throw him off of, I’m open to suggestions.
I asked intern via Skype if she could walk to the printer and grab some papers for me since I was dialed in to a call at my desk. Responded “No, I don’t do intern work”..what’s a fair reaction to that
Soooo at today's morning status meeting our shitty SM was absolutely railing a consultant. Consultant stands up and says, "Fuck you. You're an asshole. I'm done here." And walks out. 😳...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
