Feel like a single dad and will be soon. Dreading it, wife is Stage IV. 😟

My brother just went through this last year and a friend is going through it now (spouse with Stage IV diagnosis). Not gonna sugarcoat it, it is really, really hard and on the whole fam. But not impossible. Sending 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 for strength and the right help at the right time and so much ❤️❤️❤️

Someone messaged me and I pressed ignore by mistake. Sorry about that!

Do you guys feel there is some sort of a bias or a preconceived judgement at your work, once they realize you are a single parent? Would love to hear people’s experiences and take in this.

I have received great support from work and clients. I try and make it to all my major kid events and have times I can’t travel. I have been able to make it work fine. But in return, I often work after the kids go to sleep, etc. Everyone seems supportive and flexible as long as I deliver.

Could use some encouragement. I billed an enormous amount last month because things were on fire and I’m the baby of the firm so I got tagged in on a number tight, high pressure deadlines. Many, many 14+ hour billable days. Mind you, I’m a single mother with young kids. Today I got pulled aside for a chat about how some partners feel like I was running behind on some assignments (no deadlines were missed—some got pushed when new work was added).

Anyone have any experience with high deductible insurance plans with a newborn? Trying to decided if I should add my newborn onto my HDHP (I've met my $2700 deductible through delivery but my baby will have his own $2700 deductible to meet). Alternatively I could add him to my spouses regular insurance with a lower deductible/higher premium.

I’m a single parent and mid-level associate, and have been struggling with the increased expectations from pandemic-level work. I do not have the luxury of a full-time nanny, maids or stay-at-home spouses like most of the partners I work with and the expectation that I be available 24/7 (and on zoom) is impossible to keep up with lately. Work was manageable pre-pandemic (and I really enjoyed it) but these new expectations seem unsustainable. Anyone else in the same boat? How are you managing?

My husband isn’t a great parent and he have a toddler. He means well but doesn’t know how to handle children . We have been thinking about a second child.

I also don’t want to have my child miss out on having a sibling either.

How do you navigate the holidays, with or without kids? I tend to be pretty busy over the next 3-4 months and I always try to make as much time for family as I can, but it seems like it's never enough. My mother in law is pretty old fashioned and I can tell she thinks it's wrong that some nights I'm home late during the holiday season or when I work in downtimes during family holidays. My partner is incredibly supportive but I still feel some guilt over it.

Tried to join the running bowl, but it doesn't seem active/can't get in. Just needed somewhere to vent: my husband made me take down my marathon medals and put them in storage 3 years ago. Said they looked tacky. They were stored at my mother in laws. Just found out they got thrown out in a big house clean. It feels so trivial but I'm super bummed. I had medals from Boston and Chicago and was working towards all 6 majors. Do I start from scratch and run all 6 starting now? *sigh*

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby.

Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
