Going on a parental leave in a month. Anyone know of any remote, freelance/part time I can do to still make money on the side? Out side of Uber/Lyft etc
My husband and I are expecting and both of us have moms diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD.) My dad passed away earlier this year and my FIL lives in Australia and is the nicest man. He’s just far away from us since we’re based in the NE. My therapist says your family doesn’t have to be blood related but I can’t help but feel sad our baby won’t have grandparents or a similar type of figure easily accessible/ nearby. Can anyone relate and/or have a similar situation?
Do you have to spend a certain number of months at PwC before you get their parental leave benefits?
Hello! Can other moms share their experience with night nurses? What are the costs (We live in MCOL area— Atlanta), was it worth it if you breastfed baby, etc? Do they clean and do laundry? None of my friends have ever gotten one so we don’t know what to expect! TIA 🙏🏻
How many of you are sending your kids to daycare? I’ve been on maternity leave and joining in the next few weeks. Planning to send the toddler to daycare and keep the baby home but freaking out if we get the virus home. We have pretty much been home these last few months. But I don’t know how me and my husband could possibly manage both kids while working from home. Anyone keep two kids home and manage work? Any tips ...

Hi mommas. Slowly weaning 4 month old from breast milk and wanting to move to only formula by 5 months. I know lots of people get formula shipped from Europe but that seems too much of a hassle. What US formula are you using? We’ve tried happy baby organics and Bobbie and I’m not sure which one is better (debating if having probiotic is a plus or no). Any thoughts welcome!
When is the earliest you’d suggest taking a pregnancy test? Took one and got a negative result 9 days post ovulation but have read you should wait at least 10-12 days post ovulation? If so - why do tests claim “6 days before missed period?” Tryna have a pre-busy season baby problems 😂! Thanks in advance!
I have a toddler and baby. Toddler was always home due to pandemic and started preschool. He brings sickness home every week and we are all sick miserable.

Can some experienced mamas share your wisdom on how you managed sickness , covid fear and do right by the kids
I visited a friends that has a 1 year old baby. She asked me if I wanted to get a dog, and then asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. She said it was a good way to start carrying for something else and get experience for the future. I think this is hillarious I don’t see how a dog or a plant will fulfill my life. 😂
Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!
What is the extent of details revealed in a background check? If I left voluntarily vs was let go - does that show up in a background check?

Past promotion dates?

How do you teach a 4 yo when they start to lie? Today, my kid quickly put his lunch back into his box when his teachers turned around and lied to his teachers that he finished his food. They were even praising him on how quickly he finished his lunch today. And told us also that he finished all his food as well.

Did anyone find themselves feeling disconnected with husband post baby? New mom here. Feel like my husband and I hardly talk of anything other than the baby and her daily needs. In case we ever do, we always end up fighting. Feeling unsure whether our relationship will last. I know the root of the problem is that we don’t get much time for each other. But just wanting to know if this somewhat normal, or should I be prepared for the worst.
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.

When did you feel like you were successful? People around me think it’s impressive that I work at Deloitte; however, I’m miserable and hate the work I’m doing. Just accepted another job that others would deem a dream company and salary but I’m just afraid of being miserable there too. I just don’t feel like I’m good enough, will be happy, or be in a position where I feel like I’m successful as others.

What are some signs that it’s time to move on to a new job/ career path? I’m not looking at promotion for realistically another 2 years, same timing for pay raise.

I had a weird dream: I was at a conference with a job to do, and different individuals from different companies/governments gave me assignments to do. It was not clear to me who my client was, and which assignments I was to prioritize. The assignments were completely different in nature, e.g. drafting a government policy, market entry for an consumer goods company. Was pretty entertained when i woke up :)
Any especially telling questions you ask when interviewing for jr accounts roles? We’re hiring an AC, and our last AC interviewed really well, then couldn’t perform in the job.
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
