So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
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 🙏🏻
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.
I don't have time to make purees at home. I buy from store all the time. I make sure it's organic and natural preservatives. I feel guilty that I don't give my six months old baby home made food ☹️

Chicago 🐟 living in downtown: Wife and I are expecting baby in the next month and neither of our parents are gonna make it over from India. Wife and I have been wanting to figure out the meals situation once the baby is here, I plan on cooking as much as I can but In case I need a break looking for options. I have heard Krishna lunch is a good option for fresh vegetarian meals. Wanted to know if there any desi folks preparing home cooked tiffins/meals that one can purchase via cash/venmo?
Recently restarted strength training. I had my baby about a year ago and my tummy (37.5 inches at the belly button) is just huge. Checked with my gyno and she rules out Diastasis Recti and said all of it was just fat 🥲Any ladies who had luck with strength training and reducing tummy fat? I’m not looking at immediate results or even spot reduction- just curious how it looks like after a year or two. Female , 32 year old.
Do you have to spend a certain number of months at PwC before you get their parental leave benefits?
I’ve finally woken up and realized that I missed out on love and having my own family in exchange for fighting my way out of poverty and “making it” to McK. Upon reflection it wasn’t worth it.
Another mass shooting in a HS. Semi-automatic handgun was used. Thoughts? https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/rcna7128
Would it be insane to buy a 1 bd home if there’s a possibility of having a kid in the next ~3 years? Assuming we’d have to look for a 2 bd if we do have a kid and try to rent/sell the 1 bd
My mother completely enables my sister to be lazy and it’s so frustrating. First my sister and her lazy husband lived together at my mother’s house for nominal costs. Now my sister’s husband left her and my sister and her two children (6 and 9) live at my mother’s house while she cooks and cleans for them. Sister recently started working and doesn’t do much besides her own job. I now have a toddler in another state and my mother doesn’t want to leave my sister’s kids during the school year.
Has anyone changed employers in the same year as taking parental leave? Planning to actively look elsewhere, starting in June. However, we are expecting our first child in December.
Parent consultants, how do you get rest when at home? Either one of the kids won't go to sleep or if that works out fine, one of them keeps waking up at night. Can't recall the last good sleep night.
What are some good baby books. This is baby 2 so didn’t do baby shower and some of the things we did with our first, so would like something that is easily customizable and not too much work!
Help! My niece wants a baby alive doll for her birthday and apparently I got the wrong one! She wants the one with something to do with a “belly button”!?!? Don’t have more info than that...
Weird question but I would like input… I see the Head of a FAANG organization was in the same military unit as me, however years apart from one another. They have “hiring” in their LinkedIn picture and are advertising a role I applied for. Would it be weird to message them asking to connect about that role? I am trying connect with them on a past experience but also show interest in working for them now. Should I reach out directly?
I know someone who is on medical leave but they’re not really sick. Should I report them or mind my business?

Does ZS Associates do remote location flexibility? Or are you required to live in an office city? I'm looking at a Consultant role in the Health Plan & Provider area but would prefer to stay located in the SLC area.
Currently experiencing the new delta boarding zones process. It's not going well. Almost everyone with seats just past comfort plus have had to go back further in the plane to find overhead space. :-(
Looking at going to grad school. Will it advance my career? Not really, I'm already a senior consultant aka post Mba. Just need a break from work, and to revisit some of the fun college experience I miss so dearly. I'm 25. How likely am I to be underwhelmed/regret this?

Need some help (!!) from the women who work in tech in this bowl. The company I work for has a parental leave policy that is only 2 weeks paid leave (pretty sad..) I am proposing we update this to be more competitive. I need other companies that are: 1. US policies 2. Funding under 200 million (not big tech)If anyone is aware of policies that would be helpful in my argument please message me or drop a comment below with: 1. Name of start-up 2. Amount of current funding 3. Parental leave policy.

I’m eligible for 401k %match from my employer on aug 1 2021. The max total amount I could get from them for 2021 is ~$420. I plan on maxing out & my 401k has an aggressive strategy. Would you wait to contribute until later in the year in order to maximize the match, or invest early in the year for the compound interest gains? Am I wrong to think the latter?
Workday users of companies under 2,000 employees … how big is your HRIS team supporting workday. How are responsibilities differentiated between IT/HR?
So last couple of years have been very tough for me, ending a 6yr LTR, ex getting married overnight, dating horrors, losing 40lbs, intense family issues, covid, major housing crisis, etc etc. I realized I've given up hope and become insanely negative. Last night had a break down and decided I'm gonna reboot again. Just looking for tips to keep this motivation going.
