Mom yes, Dad no. Dad might feel bad if he knows I make more than him.

Yes. I also pay them every month out of good will for paying for my college

Yup. Well, not to the penny, but they know approximately how much I make. To note--they've never asked, but I've volunteered the info in conversations about job moves and such.

Nope. They’d never ask me that in a million years.

I made the mistake of telling my mom how much I make. She started volunteering me to pay for things in front of family. Had to lie and tell her I got a huge pay cut so she would get off my ass

Wow that’s tough, I’ve heard this story quite a few times but I want to believe it is the exception

Yup - though I suspect that really just depends on culture/relationship you have with your parents.

Yes, I am paying their mortgage and some other bills so they are very up in my financials

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?

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 🥴

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.
