Feel like I participated in a consulting/nursing mamas right of passage! 😀
Including this picture because I was always super uncomfortable with the idea of pumping in an airport and always book flights that allow me to pump at home / hotel. Had multiple travel delays today and had to use a mamava pod - and was so pleasantly surprised.

Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that. Was looking forward to next year (including a family trip that’s been on the calendar for 2 years), but 3 people just left the team, only 1 will be replaced, and 3 more announced parental leave in spring. I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.

Just moved from small firm to big law—mid level litigator. Crickets the first two days while I awaited initial assignments. Not yet familiar with big firm life, so I thought I’d be careful and ask just two partners for work and see how it went. Since Saturday I’ve billed 10 hours a day. I definitely feel like saying my plate is full already, but will that look pathetic barely two weeks in?
