A partner is making tough for friend to go on a parental leave, saying if client cn manage w/o u for 6 wks...they don’t need u here...aren’t they suppose to help teams with this..what’s going on here
Finally went back to the office today and went to lunch with a couple colleagues with a client we are working to retain after the relationship partner retired. Great lunch, great conversation. As we were wrapping up client asked me about my due date (I am very obviously pregnant), so I let him know - Sept. 26. He proceeded to let me know he knew I had some fun at New Year’s… like what? Can we not? I just laughed it off bc how else do you respond in front of colleagues and a client? Blech.

How do you divide your time between your kids? My second is an extra needy and demanding, high spirited kid. My first is laidback and easy going. I always feel like the eldest gets the short end of the stick and never gets enough of my attention even tho she’s always been more attached to me than my husband. She never gets one-on-one time with me as it is since her sister (now 2) is still super glued to my side. Any suggestions for juggling this? Or to ease the mom guilt?

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
