What boundaries do you have in place as a FL? I just started and I feel like a hot mess with too much to do (business things, new calls, client work, slack, multiple emails, timesheets 💀). I’m so tired.
Do you think you can shift back to India, after living abroad for so many years? Like is the cultural (both professionally and personally) gap too much at this point?

Anyone who wants to have a collective, cathartic moment of silence for our boobs, welcome.
Hey fellow moms, curious to know about any exceptionally good or bad policies from companies to help parents navigate covid, parenting and work.
My boss asked me for how we could better support parents as winter approaches and younger kids still can’t get vaccinated. Have any of your companies handled things like quarantining with young kids while still working well?
I always see posts in the main feed from junior employees complaining about working parents leaving early. 😒 Seriously?? Do you feel your teams and offices accommodate your work schedule well?
I want to go back to work in November but I just feel so jaded. I’m not going back to my old job but also don’t know if I want to go back to ANY agency. I’m 37. I just don’t think I can do it anymore. Any stories of inspiration out there about how to switch? I was a strategy director of a top 10 Ad agency. Don’t know how to actually leave or what to do
I’m about to start on a new job soon but I also want to get pregnant in next few months. Do you think my new manager would be upset 🥲
I’m moving to LA with my husband and 6 year old. Does anyone know areas with good public schools? Thanks!
Does anyone know of a toy rental service or library in the Chicagoland area? My son is quickly bored of the toys he already has and I don’t want to keep buying more stuff. Even a toy swap group would be great if it exists.
Advice? My 14 month old hasn’t been eating dinner lately because he eats double portions at daycare and isn’t hungry when he’s home. So now he wakes up at 5 am instead of 7:30 for a milk bottle and goes back to sleep. Is this a phase? Can I do anything about it? (He used to have regular meals - if daycare doesn’t feed him 2x, he goes steals the other kids’ food 🤦♀️ other than that he’s fine)
What are some good at home pregnancy workouts! Used to do HIIT but because lazy (and now early preg) during the pandemic
First time mama to be here. I am contemplating if I want to even do account anymore (have been for awhile). I also want to take off more than the standard mat leave, anywhere between 6 months to a year (have enough savings to make this happen). I just don’t want to have any regrets and jump back to work too soon & want to take time to really think about what the next step in my career should be too. Want to keep door open at current agency, as one switch I am considering is recruiting. (Cont’d)
Hi super mamas! I desperately need advice on toddler sleep training! Our daughter was sleep trained when at 7 months and she’s been the best sleeper ever. Now she’s 2.5 YO and starting to not want to sleep until I stays in her room until she falls asleep and she also wakes up 1-2 times at night crying asks for mama and walks out of the bed until I come in and put her down- by sitting next to her bed. If I don’t go in, she would sit on the floor outside of her bed for hours without sleeping!
Any other moms here with a husband that stays at home with your kids? I consider myself lucky but I also carry guilt for traveling and there’s a lot of pressure on the finance-side. How about you?
Would you tell future employers you are pregnant if it is super early? Or would you wait until it’s at the point where you are telling people in general? Or could you say something like there’s a chance I could be pregnant soon and then negotiate may leave from there?
For those with school districts closed or facing an impending school closure, how are you managing work and childcare. I feel like it’s a matter of time for us (I’m in NJ) and beyond stressed.
What would you do? I’m 7w pregnant and don’t want to tell anyone yet. Have an upcoming shoot (6 hour plane ride) and agency said anyone can opt out for coronavirus fears. I’d hate to miss it. Help!
This mama’s hustling for a new job. Got an offer- it’s good, not great. The time off: 21 PTO days + usual holidays. Open xmas week. No sick/floating/personal. Am I right that this feels light?
Update: last week I responded to Nicole Emerick’s post about what we’re asking from our agencies. Well I asked to work from home twice a week. HR came back with a hard and fast no...
