Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
Currently 25 with 2 kids. The 1st one is 4yr old and the 2nd one is 8month old. Currently making a combined income of 285k with my wife. We have about 344k net worth. 401k & Megaback door Roth is max out. Not a fan of 529, because college can be free if you put in the work. Our only debt is our mortgage $1400monthly. We also have a brokerage account where we invest about 10k monthly in stocks. Looking to buy rentals, but we feel like stocks is the way to go for now.

Nanny cam recommendations please. We have a 3 bedroom apartment so never really bought a baby monitor .
I said I just want to adopt kids and my mom said that I’m “not normal” and that men won’t like/stay loyal to women who don’t want to give birth. 🤦🏻♀️ To me, her statement is de-humanizing, because women are much more than just a bearing machine. BUT I also understand that biologically human have the built-in desire to continue their “seeds”. Guys - what’s your honest take on this? All - what should I say to my mom? I do what I do but want to approach this tactfully with mom + future guys.
EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week. I remember I initially thought I would be back after 16 weeks, but then in the middle of my time off I got an email from Leave Team with the breakdown and it actually was 21 weeks. Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?

How to handle politics with your own father who is wildly right and you are simply a moderate? My dad is not open in any capacity to anything besides fox.

Moms from NY: how many weeks post partum were you on short term disability? I recently had a call with the leave team at my firm and was surprised to hear that typically STD after birth is 6-8 weeks, depending on the type of birth. My question is: anyone here returned to work before 6 weeks? Asking because I want to recuperate for 2 weeks after birth, then go back to work and use the remaining maternity weeks later in a year. I wonder if this will be allowed. The Leave team person made it soun
Parent has a thrift savings plan and it’s all in bonds which yields a really low rate of return. retiring this year. With coming inflation, would it be a good idea to consider shifting at least some of that into other funds like the C Fund (common stock index) or otherwise diversify? They don’t need all of the money right away but would need to slowly dip into it over time. TIA!

Which would you take: - stay at current industry FS F100 firm. Incredible support from leadership, super great WLB (30 hrs a week), potential promo TC: $115k - offer from top industry Tech firm (think Microsoft/Salesforce/FAANG).
