Just realized. When feeding baby and they bite you, they literally woke up and chose violence 😂
Suppose there are two classes - one at a state school and one at an Ivy league school. The class at the state school is taught by a professor who went to all Ivy League schools (undergrad/masters/PhD etc) The class at the Ivy League school is taught by a professor who went to all state schools (same as above). With respect to this class only, who gets the better education; the kid at the state or Ivy League school?
Have you all heard about the EFMLA? You can get 2/3 pay for 12 weeks if you need to care for a child due to corona and have no one else. And your job is protected. My coworker is doing it.
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
Any recs for office chair within $100 range? Asking for a baby sister who’s a broke college student. Doesnt have to b fancy/super fancy but something that r of decent quality… i know its a stretch to ask for this budget🤣
Is a top school education worth the extra expense? Background : my son is applying to schools for a computer science engineering degree. He wants to ED at Columbia, but I'm conflicted with committing to such a pricey degree. It would financially drain us and we have a second child in 5th grade. College price calculator puts the yearly fee at $60k out of pocket.

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.
Anyone with a SO who has ADD? He gets upset like a child and it drives me crazy sometimes. How do you guys handle this situation or try to understand from their perspective?

Any reccos on meals that are as fast and easy as pasta with sauce, but are not pasta and sauce? I cook - and pretty well and healthfully - when I have time and bandwidth, but so often by the end of the day I’m just fried, and those 20mins and 2 steps just win out. Added context: I’m a single mom. What I eat, my kid needs to eat.

30+ single ladies: how do we lead better lives as singles? I’ve dated a lot of egoistic narcissistic jerks in the last few years. Losing hope that there are decent men left in their late 30s..

If you’re at risk of getting laid off, who usually sets up the call? How does the process go?
Need to give notice to my firm tomorrow. Feeling overcome with emotion (guilt, nostalgia, excitement and trepidation). I don't think it will go well because it's a small firm, and I am very close to the partners, but need to move on to achieve career goals (and maintain sanity--I have a great relationship with my colleagues but there is a toxic culture). Truly think that my mentor will see this as a personal betrayal and blow up at me, and I'm sad to burn the bridge. Any words of encouragement?
