The amount of love I feel for my cute new pet, including the motivation he gives me to get out of bed in the morning, makes me wonder how much more having a child could change one's life for the better.. 🐣
Moms - What is this Swaddling business? When can I get rid of it? My 6 week old is a light sleeper and often wakes up by the time I finish swaddling. Ped said you don't have to swaddle if your baby is fine, but baby wakes up without one..
Is 210 enough to live an upper middle class life in Dallas? Not trying to come off as shallow just genuinely trying to understand. Have a $300K offer in NJ and $210k offer in Dallas (single income, small family) and want to make sure I’m able to give my family a great life. Dallas seems like amazing place to raise a kid, but it’s also not as cheap as everyone seems to think. The houses we want are $650-$700K range. Insight appreciated
I am 35 years old, and I threw my desktop keyboard at my monitor and broke both. I did this because I was playing a videogame and I didnt finish the level I needed to in the correct amount of time. I did it because I got mad other people can finish the level so easily but I cant seem to. I never feel good enough, and I think it stems from my father for 18 years telling me I am never good enough. Now I never know if I see myself as unworthy because its true or im conditioned to believe it.
Just ruined Mother's Day weekend with somehow getting on topic of family issues. Congratulations to me! No coming back from this 🍾🍾🍾

Hi all! Could anyone help provide some insight into how good the maternity leave policy is at EY? Thank you 🙏🏻
Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!

Traveling from Seattle-NY-Dubai-India soon. I want to take alcohol for my father but I don't drink. Which Scotch/whiskey is popular? Is it better to buy here, and check it in or in duty free?
I’m looking for ideas. How do you guys have fun and still be a working mom? I’m killing it at work and at home, my kid feels secure and loved but I find fun and play is the hardest thing to achieve.
Hi mums! Due with my first child at the end of July and always thought I’d only take 6m off (I’m in the UK) but everyone is saying to go to 8-9m as they are still too little at 6m. Any advice? Thanks!
I have a close family member that has asked me to "write a letter," as her attorney, to a service provider who she believes is in breach. I don't mind doing it, but I'm not sure whether I can engage her without bringing her into my firm as a client. Because of our relationship, I wouldn't bill her, but it doesn't seem like I should bring in clients to my firm without billing them. How are these situations normally handled?
How tough is it to lateral to a larger bank, or to exit into corp dev/strategy at a "large cap" company at the VP-ish level? I'm currently in IB at a smaller MM bank, but kind of trapped until I get my green card which obviously will be a few years. I don't hate my bank/team but I do feel limited by the bank (since obviously reputation/size dictates the deals the bank can win)
Does anyone have a business continuation plan in the event coronavirus or other natural disaster occurs? If so what is it? The news is talking about whole office buildings being closed down for months
How does anyone make transition into PM if the current company/industry I am in does not have this opportunity? I really want to make this move but it seems like other posts are against taking courses/MBA to make this transition. Help!
Would you take the following offer: Base - ~$180K; Bonus - ~$30K; RSU - ~$15k; Total Comp - ~$225K; F500 firm, not tech, mid-west, individual contributor role with potential for senior roles in 2 years. Good WLB, but not the most interesting industry. Currently working at a T2 Strategy Consulting firm, 2.5 years out of a T10 MBA. $200K all in. 7 YoE. Happy with consulting so far and performing well, but would like better WLB. How much better are tech exit ops given SF cost of living?

Dealing with a passive aggressive client w/ fragile masculinity and the power combo of "needs to be the alpha in every conversation" and "usually doesnt know what he's talking about". Pray for me.
I love the idea of working in venture capital or start-ups, but cannot stand the people. I find the culture extremely performative, and the people incredibly self-important. Anyone else in the same boat?
Planning a 2 week vacation in August - Ireland or Germany? Haven't spent significant time in either.
