Etiquette question. My 4 year olds birthday is coming up, and she asked me to invite her teacher. I understand why she wants her there, but it feels like an invasion of her personal time. Am I overthinking, or do people actually do this? I wouldn't want to put her in a position of feeling like she has to because it's a student. What do people do?

Maybe instead of inviting the teacher to a kids party, see if you can arrange for them to go to lunch or get ice cream together (you paying!).

Haha my daughter did the same thing, she has a mix of young/trendy teachers, and much older teachers in her preschool. I have a few of their phone numbers (from when I’ve hired them for outside work), she wanted the young/trendy one to come, so I just texted her when/where and said if she wanted to swing by she could/no pressure. Then my daughter said “mommy we need to make her a special salad, that’s what she eats” 😂😂 anyway. Long story short, she didn’t stop by, no one was bothered, my daughter was happy she was invited, she dropped a small gift off for her. It worked out. 🤷🏽‍♀️

What is the transition feasibility from in-house counsel to law firm. Really want to go into litigation. No bites on my apps. But randomly got something for an in-house counsel position where I’d be making $40-70k above an associate position. And that range just depends on the firm. Conflicted here. I am currently a criminal defense attorney with 1 year of practice from an office that provides great experience.
