Hi Ladies! Those of you who have a Dependent Care FSA account - how are you planning to use the amount you have already contributed? My child is going to start kindergarten this year, was planning to use the FSA account to pay for his preschool until the school started. With the pandemic going on, that money is sitting unused. I would not want to lose that money, appreciate your ideas! Thank you.

It’s been a long time since I shopped for a baby. Am I that much out of touch??Is that normal to pay that much or am I being cheap?? Just wondering.

First time expecting mom here. I have a very noob / stupid question. So I read that you're not supposed to let the baby sleep alone in his/her room when newborn. So then what is the point of the nursery?! Wouldn't it make more sense to have the crib/bassinet in the parents' bedroom, or have a bed for an adult in the nursery as well? Confused here.

To the moms in here - I’m pregnant for the first time & the morning (all-day) sickness is killing me. What are some tips & tricks that worked for you? Any advice is appreciated!

I think I am in an emotionally abusive relationship. I am married with a small child. I have been walking on eggshells for years, afraid of triggering my husband and his rage. He is constantly screaming at me or giving me the silent treatment for no reason at all. Interestingly enough, he’s a good father and my child adores him. I don’t know what to do, and I’m terrified of losing time with my child and the impact on my child longer term if I leave him. He won’t go to counseling. Advice?

I’m convinced that while practice does help, case studies are fundamentally designed to evaluate your critical thinking skills and IQ — which are immutable qualities. No matter how many mock cases I do, I can’t seem to figure out how they work and therefore can’t crack any interviews (10+ tries). I don’t think I’m as smart as I once thought 😕😕

How did you set your rent budget when moving in with a partner? I make £125k base (£167k inc bonus), and my boyfriend makes £95k base (£105k inc bonus). I’m used to allocating 30% of my take-home pay to rent, which is about £1800/mo for a charming neighbourhood in zone 1, but my bf’s used to paying closer to £1000/mo to live in zone 6 and balks at the rent prices I think are reasonable given our incomes and locations we want (zone 2). We both wfh so ideally want a 3BR. (Continued in comments)

My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office. The downside is that there will probably be less work for employment lawyers. I don’t mind making that sacrifice. It’s harder to have a hostile work environment when you don’t have to be in a work environment 5 days a week (sometimes 6). For context, I’m a POC.
