I gave mine up to a single mother with baby that boarded in the active military line on a 6am flight. Turned out she was going to some event for her husband who passed away during active duty. It wasn’t a hard decision but I about lost it when the flight attendants came over and told me her situation through their tears.

Gave mine up to my dad on our last vacation! He grew up as a poor immigrant in the rural farmlands of SE Asia and worked his ass off to get to the US and get me to college. Never flew international for vacation before, let alone first class. Best feeling in the world was watching his face when the flight attendant told him his seat reclined all the way down and the drinks were free 😭😄😄

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.

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.
