1350/ infant


When we lived in NYC, daycare was over 2700/month for the baby. The toddler was closer to 2300/month. Now that we’re no longer in city, we don’t pay over 2k per kids. Total spend varied as we provide diapers, meals, gifts to teachers etc

New Dad here. 8 weeks in and I don’t feel the imagined bell and whistles of fatherhood. Is this normal?

My 5 year old son demanded a haircut because he doesnt like his curly hair. Its too curly. He wants hair thats like Fletcher's. (Fletcher is his white friend from day care). My son and his sister are the only blacks at the day care. I dont know how to broach the subject with him.

Thank y’all for starting this bowl! Newly expecting mama here 🤰🏾I’ll be 11 weeks tomorrow! My husband and I are praying that I give birth to healthy 🤴🏾 or 👸🏾. I look forward to learning from this group!


Am I tripping? Everyone loves calling my daughter (2 months) "lil chocolate drop" or "look at all that chocolate". I love my daughter's complexion, not only because it's mine, but because it's beautiful. However, I can't help but feeling like ppl "other" or make it weird by avoiding saying dark. Calling her dark is acceptable and appreciated. I know "chocolate" comes from a place of affection, but I just can't embrace it 💯.


Seeing local parents reacting to the public school lottery results in DC, got me super nervous about when it’s my kids turn.

Any of the sisters deal with gestational diabetes but already had a restrictive diet pre and during pregnancy?
Doctor says I have it, but I honestly don’t believe them. I don’t eat cane sugar (not even in sauces), gluten, dairy, or soy. So not surprised I couldn’t process their drink-I don’t consume stuff like that regularly. I walk a mile or do HIIT training 5x/ week. The condition doesn’t run in my family (and my mom has 4 sisters w/kids-good sample size) (cont’d in comments)

Potential unintended consequences of my parenting decisions is the most stressful thing ever.

The “right” approach can feel so clear one moment, then feel like a huge mistake the next.

Thanks all for this group. 1st time expecting dad 🧔🏾.

I’m a little bit all-over the place and not sure where to start financial planning from.

I live in a Tier-1 city and think it’s necessarily to move to Tier-3. It’s important that my kids grow up in a house vs. apartment. Also need to stretch my dollar as far as possible.

Total comp - $180K
