Curious to thoughts on “best time” to get pregnant/have kids. Am currently a first year consultant and would like to have one soon, but worried about my reputation and promotion timing.

Taking out a female friend and her one year old baby for brunch. Maybe this is a silly question, but do I ask the restaurant for a high chair for the kid? Or does the kid stay in the stroller while we eat? Clearly I’m a clueless friend here!

So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?

If your own kids go to school in your district, do you struggle with the different hats that you wear?

She is now in sports and coach is a coworker. And now I have some of her friends and teammates in class. Friends/students coming over will get awkward. Don’t know what I am going to do when she starts dating…

Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

I’m concerned about my mom’s health and want to work closer from home. Is this a valid reason for me to apply to a consulting job that is closer to home? I’m a recent college grad in the US and I’m the only child. My current firm’s office is ~2 hr from my (mom’s) home. I can’t live with and take care of her once the WFH is over. I saw that some of MBBs have offices pretty close to my home (~10 min). When applying to the positions, can I mention that I want to take care of my parent?
