I am at a loss for what to do. My mother is our live-in nanny M-F for our infant son. My parents live about an hour away so she goes home on Friday afternoons and usually comes back Sunday night or early Monday morning. Prior to my son being born my husband and her got along really well and he would even ask when she was coming back. For the last couple of months that is not the case. They are constantly making snide comments and such. Most days now they are barely speaking...
Looking at some LinkedIn posts I think, “you can’t spellcheck your deck but sure talk about the company strategy like it’s your brain-child” ☺️
How is it going with those who decided to adopt pets during covid? Have some of you gotten back to the weekly travelling?
Moms, is there anyone here who took a 'shorter' mat leave after their first kid was born? I'm in Canada, and most of my peers took the entire year off. I think I'll want 6 montnmhs at most, while husband takes the other 6. If there are no health complications for me, he's onboard with the plan too.
What I'm looking for is advice around what kind of efforts does a 6 mo baby need? Can it be done while I'm working from home, and husband is the primary caregiver?
Found out I’m pregnant using an at home test last week and first visit isn’t until week 10.. I’m currently on week 5.. not feeling too much in terms of symptoms.. I’m a bit anxious having to wait until week 10 for an obgyn to confirm the pregnancy.. anyone had a similar experience? Any tips on how to make time fly by as I wait for my appointment 😕
Nothing new here I guess, but still putting it out there... I am an educated, smart, successful woman. But these days I see myself as a mother of two who is barely surviving at life when she is used to “killing it” at work. Kids are not learning anything new, house is a mess, unlimited personal projects on hold, personal grooming is not even on the agenda and to make it all worse, have a personal goal of weight loss but am actively working against it.
Just need to vent.
My SO was going through some issues over a year ago and decided to use the counselor services provided through her workplace. She mentioned that her plan only covered some sessions so she was trying to figure how she could continue counseling. That was that.
We've been trying to better our savings now that we have a baby and I've been trying to figure out our expenses for months now but I'm always off. I finally realized a few months ago that she continued counseling. More..
Just found baby coackroaches in my bathroom. Manager at the front desk said they might have been water bugs and gave me another room. I was angry but didn't bitch her out. Should I demand spg points?
I want to get my mother a personal conputer under 700. She mostly uses it to run her clothing store. No big data analysis or heavy content. Recommendations?
The only thing I hate more than having to look after my cousin-in-law’s toddler is being expected to say the kid is cute. She looks like a female version of her dad and her dad looks like Napoleon Dynamite.
Not an addict myself, but my father was hospitalized yesterday and diagnosed with pancreatitis. I hope this helps him realize he reached bottom. How can I help get better or be strict about my limits so he doesn’t overstep?
My husband and I want to buy a new car and are TTC. Parents with 1 kid do you think an SUV is easier to manage with or a sedan works just as fine with all the baby stuff to carry around (stroller, extra clothes, etc). Am I just making a big deal over nothing? We currently have a 2 door car which is very impractical for more than 2 ppl.
Anyone else want to punch the kid in the face that plays Peter Pan in the Geico commercial?
I am 6 months pregnant and found out my husband has been shifting money to overseas companies for who knows what. I don’t understand what he’s doing but he always seems to be out of money and making it difficult for us to stick to a budget. He has had gambling issues in the past, and we worked so hard to get him to a better place emotionally. This might be the 50th time I’ve discovered his financial deceits. In my heart I want to just leave him, but I am so exhausted.
I miss depth. We are moving to Figma, it’s great, but watching some sessions at Adobe Max I was feeling nostalgic for deeper work like one might do with Illustrator. The tools are for different purposes I know, but presently we are doing such slap dash work, and everyone and their mother is ‘helping’ with the design. The other day a developer had a random idea, it wasn’t bad, and I just didn’t care, so I said’sure’ do that.
Now that my wife is pregnant, I’ve been thinking about the discussions around abortion a lot more. Seeing how developed the ultrasounds are after about week 13, has me thinking that abortions past 15 weeks should be for certain cases only (medical for fetus or mother etc). Isn’t this just a common sense approach? What’s the argument against this?
My cat threw up this morning and I almost stayed home so it's safe to say I am never going to be a mother cause I can't even handle my cat getting sick!!!!! Nothing but kudos to u ladies!!!
Need to vent but, how can people be able to afford a house that can only eat 25% of their monthly income? we live in a HCOL area and the houses in a good school districts are +400K (these houses are 1 hour away from DC too). I am so scared and don’t want to be a house slave but I have a kid and I want to be able to afford the best for him
🤞🏼. Need some baby bust over here! 💖

So.. had a job process that started in Feb (for a variety of reasons) but now finally getting to acceptance and start date in July. Comp is fine but now that we are half way through the calendar year bonus pro-ration means that Year 1 comp would be a paycut.
Rude to ask for signing bonus at the last minute?
What’s the most major expense you now are able to afford because of the most major pay increase of your life? E.g. from 100k to 250k or 250k to 400k and now you’re able to afford that MacLaren you always wanted
Y'all oppose net neutrality being repealed but love airline/hotel status and special treatment that comes from it. Someone educate me on what the difference is because it seems the same conceptually.
