There are 620 people on this bowl, and we say very little. Are we a bunch of introverts?

@PwC- question on intangibles: what's the expense policy like? Need to use corporate card for travel (air/hotels)? Can you use personal card? How easy is it to file expenses?
St. Regis or Westin Excelsior in Florence for Honeymoon? Also, best Marriott in Rome? Thinking the autograph collection near the Pantheon maybe.
What are some ways your firms are offering tech solutions to help clients affected by COVID?

Putting a new strap on my explorer and noticed that the drilled holes in the case are a good amount larger than the tip of the spring bars that came with the strap. Photo shows the original spring bar compared to the strap. Would you be concerned using a slimmer spring bar for your watch that has bigger holes?
What rate people are getting for refinancing this week? My lender is quoting very high, and seems doubtful!
Anyone willing share their lender reference?
Like this post if you know a colleague or a team member who genuinely LOVES to CC your manager in every email being sent out as "for awareness" when it's clearly not necessary. 😑😑

Never bought Hanna Anderson clothes (actually don’t buy our kids clothes cause grandparents buy from Costco and then we get a lot from Buy Nothing Groups)…. Recently saw this add and got excited but holy crap $50 for kids pajama??? I don’t even spend that on my pajamas & those last a lot longer!!
Thinking about sending our son who JUST turned 2 to daycare. The school would be able to put him into a 1-2 classroom right away, which means he would be with a couple of 2 year olds as well as several 12-18 month olds. We are concerned that our 2 yo, who cries frequently and has started throwing large daily tantrums, will be “learning” from the 1 year olds that this is appropriate behavior and/or will progress less if he’s not with peers his age and slightly older. Are we wrong to think this?
First time mom to my daughter currently residing in NY. I want to get back to working! If anyone can please help! This will also open up dms!
Working moms, I’m 28 and a single mom of two babies under the age 2. I need work from home remote career suggestions. Where I live, the daycare is unacceptable. I need to WFH until the girls are in preschool. Please help, I currently wfh for an insurance company but they will eventually ask me to come back in the office..
Moms with infants- what are you planning on doing for childcare in a pandemic? Are they in daycare or something else?
Hi mamas. First month trying again after a miscarriage in December. Previously my cycle was extremely regular but this month (we are using the clear blue digital ovulation tests) I’ve been at peak fertility for four days in a row... is that normal?? I’ve also been cramping a bit more than usual during ovulation... took a pregnancy test and it was definitely negative..
How have other moms whose partner is working decided when the time was right to bring a babysitter back? We live in NJ and a babysitter has always been allowed but we put her on paid leave. My partner is using leave for now but we don’t want to use all of it in case one of us gets sick. With no clear state or federal guidelines on what the next step should be, we’re thinking about bringing her back shortly after Labor Day. Anyone else?
As woman there are times where intimacy isn't always easy. We don't talk about it enough and I wanted to share here as I feel it could serve! As someone who experienced vaginismus, I associated intimacy with pain, shame, doubt and hesitation. My experience was transformed with the support I now share with my clients. If you're interested in releasing shame, increasing your libido and feeling confident to lean into intimacy, DM me. Let's start having conversations that support one another!
Seeking advice from moms that have weaned a boob obsessed toddler. About to start weaning my almost 2 year old and curious how many days before she will get over it 😬
I feel guilty but it’s time. She can’t be home around me without wanting to nurse and I’m sick of arguing with her about it 😕
FTM here and my baby will start daycare soon. Daycare asked us to prepare all the bottles on a daily basis. Between all the bottles and my pumping parts, it sounds like an absolute nightmare in terms of cleaning. Is there an easier way to do this besides running the dishwasher daily?
Do you think it’s ok to ask our cleaning lady to help with folding the laundry? She comes with her adult daughter every other week to clean the house, but I have about 5 loads of laundry that needs to be folded with zero time to do it 😬 What’s the best way to ask?
How many of you corporate America moms looooove your jobs vs view them as a necessity to fund what you like and enjoy? Heading back to work after maternity-2 and can’t seem to get myself excited about it. I love having a career, accomplishments, financial independence, ability to afford a nice lifestyle, plus I would make the worst housewife. But daily grind, dealing with crazy personalities and general pointlessness of my line of work (corporate tax consulting) is filling me with dread. Welp!
We are dealing with a nasty stomach bug. Any tips for dealing with vomit on fabric, do you just throw it in the wash? Rinse first in sink? Etc?? Thank you in advance.
My 19 month old has been transitioning to 1 nap for the last two weeks and she still will only sleep for an hour and fifteen minutes. Sometimes she will sleep two hours. She needs a longer nap because she wakes up crying and then requires an early bedtime. We’ve tried keeping her in the bed longer and moving the nap earlier because she’s overtired. How long did this transition take? It’s so hard. She is now waking up at 5 am too because she is overtired.
Northeasterner going to Disney World for MDW. Any recommendations for a good bra? Truthfully with the WFH option, I wear bras maybe once a week now. Body type: post 2 babies, I like beer, the Tatas used to be huge and are now deflated. Looking mostly for comfort. If we can add some good looks, that would be helpful too. I sweat a lot and worry polyester could make me stinky. And I have sensitive skin and can get an under boob rash. Thanks in advance!!
I left an AmLaw100 firm for work-life balance. I had two babies and I was working day, night and weekends. I snagged an in-house job at a F100 company and it was great at first. Over the years my job has changed and I’m now working longer hours than I did at the law firm and not able to give time and attention to my now pre-teen daughters, and they are acting OUT. My husband makes only $55K so the financial burden rests on my shoulder. I’m fucking miserable. HELP. Student loans, mortgage, etc.
To my Deloitte mom on here: what happens to your utilization when you go on maternity leave? I notice since there was a chance with the calendar year in the firm, my utilization has gone down a bit compared to a last year, which it was a few weeks ago... I’ll be on LoA in 5 weeks, maybe I can call and ask but wanted to ask here first. Also, do you have to login every week to complete DTE and MySource? TIA!
I am currently on my mat leave, but returning to the job market in a couple months. Do I need to mention this year off in my resume? Do I need to mention the leave during my interviews?
What activities do you have your young kids in? I have a very active 3 yo and want to get him more engaged.
