Friends, I highlighted and denied working late because of my child. I was performing good but not in the eyes of my manager. He gave me the worst rating and my scatterplot is at the middle of quadrant 3 behind all SCON at my level. This is also because one SCON at my level is manager’s favourite and I joined recently. Can I expect some increment or what will happen to variable? Please guide me saviours!! Also my coach is supporting me and has given a very good rating.

I was told that I won’t be considered for my promotion to SM this year end because I’m on maternity leave. This sounds sketchy given that I did everything in my power to prepare before I went on mat leave. Now I’m pushing my coach and leadership to let me go up for promotion in an off cycle promotion. Is this fair and normal or is this a sign I need to look for a new job and resign? I feel like I’m being punished for being on maternity leave.

What is your HH income, age of your kids and how much do you spend on childcare per year including summer camps etc ?

I recently found a new job and am (finally) making as much as my husband even though historically I’ve made significantly. We’ve recently purchased our home and also have a child on the way. My husband insists that because I now make as much as him, I should kick in half of the mortgage, car loan, and utilities (I pay about 40% now). I feel this is an unfair ask because as head of household, the man should shoulder more of the financial responsibility. He says it’s the 21st century…

My in-laws currently live nearby and they have been so wonderful with date nights, weekday babysitting, etc now that we have a 10 month old. We will probably have baby number 2 right after husband graduates, which is also when we want to move cities. Would love to hear stories about people who make it work/thrive without family nearby (budgets for hired help, etc). We would probably move 3-4 hours away from them, where we have most of our network (but not immediate family).
