I couldn’t even get through the top comment thread before the entitlement, self-martyrdom, and misdirected unhappiness made me want to throw things. Agggggh!

Whoever SA2 is in the thread, I want to be friends because they are hilarious. I deal with this all the time because I'm only one of 2 senior people without kids, so there's always this expectation I can work late or pick up there slack.

This is why I just block my calendar and out that it is a private appointment when I need flexibility for something. Everyone assumes it’s the doctor or something, when really I might just be going for a run to clear my head. I think some people missed OPs point on that post. They didn’t have a problem with people with kids working flexible schedules. They just want to be afforded the same flexibility. I don’t notice it too much in my group, because no one has children currently, but people do have flexibility for their dogs.

That’s so funny! I have a similar situation. I’m teacher and our emergency preparedness plan has a tiered dismissal plan. Their are 5 levels. #1 people with kids are first to leave and works down to #5 people without kids. I feel that it is extremely unfair. I actually fall into the 4th category because I have pets. My choice to not have kids should not punish me, my fiancé, and my pups.

It’s been a wild ride on that thread for sure!

Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?

And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
