Packing for cross country move with a 5 month old baby and drowsiness from pollen allergy medication looks like a terrible idea now
Funny experience - I was in the line at a craft store and started chatting with the people around me. Person in front of me was annoyed about having to craft valentines for her kid's class. Person behind me was getting a late start on his kid's science project. They asked me what I was in for. Me: oh I don't have kids, so I'm picking up a new hobby (watercoloring). Them: oh. You must have a lot of free time and money huh. Me: yeah it's pretty great 😃👍
For those of you working from home, do you know whether your coworkers will be throwing a baby shower for you? I feel like without being visibly pregnant to most people (since we are not in the office), I feel like I’m going to miss out on having one which is kind of a bummer since I’ve always gotten gifts for others.
I have become frustrated with the profession (no discipline, labeling every student for something, students not prepared for grade level content, parents who don't really parent). Anyone with me?
Sooo my nanny fell asleep holding the baby. My husband and I work from home. So, he walked in, saw them and put the baby in the crib. Ask: Any advice on how to address this with the nanny? Also, it it a fire able offense? Context: Nanny started full time on 1/24; baby is not quite 5 months old; we are WFH and have cameras installed that are visible (she should know they exist); first time having a nanny
What’s a good first birthday gift for a girl? It’s my best friend’s baby’s first birthday. Thank you!!
So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.
Laugh of the day. I exclusively pumped (baby didn’t like BF) until month 5 and stopped due to supply tanking and going back to work. Now my baby is on formula and needs a special kind because of cow milk protein allergy. Of course the formula is hard to find because of the shortage so I’m having family around the country get samples from their Pediatricians to send to me. This morning my dad goes to me “Why don’t you just breastfeed him instead, it’s better for babies anyway”. 🙄
Has anyone attempted lab “kits”? A small set of materials you send home with a kid to do a lab at home?
Just got dumped after 6 months. We had a serious connection so I thought, said we loved each other, talked about future, looked like I was everything he said he wanted. But he thought I was out of his league, more established, there was an age difference, I have older kids, he has one young child. I lurked on his IG and he is on vacation with someone else 😂🥺 I’m HEARTBROKEN. How tf do I recover?!?
Received an offer to lateral to a big firm. The benefits package includes health, dental, disability etc. but no mention of their parental leave policy. I don’t recall my current job spelling that out either in my offer. Im not planning on having kids in the immediate future but I am curious of the policy at the new firm. Fair question to ask or will it scare them if I do?
Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.
Found a niche in my legal practice and have been giving presentations, doing client development and working hard to create a space for myself. I’ve partnered with various mid and senior partners on some of these presentations, but I write the script, did the prep work, and have the case experience. One mid partner was asked to present my presentation at a conference taking place during my upcoming maternity leave. He readily accepted then called me to make sure I don’t mind him recycling….
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

I opened up JWN 9/25 put credit spreads $13/$12.5 with a breakeven price of $12.80. Didn't think it would break $13 - should I close out and cut losses or is there a chance Nike earnings may lift retail later this week by expiry?
Happy Friday, everyone! Got any fun plans this weekend? I'm going to stand up comedy open mic!
Not a homeowner - but looking to buy in 2-3 years. I feel like I'm saving well, but could save more pre-tax with my 401k. Can I reasonably access 401k funds to buy a house, or should I keep just putting 10% to 401k and investing post tax money to save up a down payment?

How do you deal w partner(s) that you hate working for? Is there a way to not work w him/her without causing any drama?
I just went through 2 busy airports, 1 full 3 hour airplane flight, and not ONE person complimented my Bored Ape hoodie. I can’t do this anymore

Switching to industry; my new team has 4 other members who all have MBAs from T7 schools and work experience at top companies prior to this, while I just have UG degree and ZS experience. Is it normal to be nervous? Im just trying to view it as a great opportunity to work with smart people.

I keep losing out on Producer jobs to younger producers with far less experience only because they have LA or NYC zip codes on their resumes. Does living in LA magically make you a better producer?

I have even got a verbal confirmation on offer but now the hiring manager is saying that there is a hiring freeze and it will atleast a month before it gets lift off and approval process is completed. It has already been 15 days now.
Dragging a formula down 50K rows, around the 47k row it just stops. Not stops to calculate the formula but stops to even apply it to the cell (it’s blank with no formula). Am I going insane??? 🤯
I wish I didn't have to lesson plan/prepare on the weekends, but there are just not enough hours in the day, especially when you have your own kids at home. THEY should be my priority and I shouldn't have to feel guilty about that.
I’m looking to move into consulting anybody with advice or guidance would be much appreciated regarding R&C
