Has anyone started traveling yet? Client’s city has not had an outbreak and I’m slated to travel soon. I’m fairly nervous and refuse to fly so looking at driving 5-6 hours. I also have a young kid and my husband works lengthy hours so I’m pretty apprehensive but don’t feel like I’m at liberty to decline travel.
That moment of dread when a mom with a baby sits in your row. Guess I'm not sleeping this morning. 😨
Is anyone a 100% remote? I know it’s a great opp to be remote during the covid and flu season esp with a young baby (5 month old) but I can’t shake the feeling off that I’m missing HHs and just team events. Doesn’t help that I’m based out of a state where the majority of the team is not present.
I don't have time to make purees at home. I buy from store all the time. I make sure it's organic and natural preservatives. I feel guilty that I don't give my six months old baby home made food ☹️
Best books or podcasts on how to introduce discipline as a baby moves towards toddler-hood? No idea how to discipline or set boundaries but know that it is needed. Where to start?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
The worst words I've ever had spoken to me were 'not compatible with life.' Today is the one year mark since the procedure and loss of what would have been our first child. I'm about to go on a bender 🥃
Thoughts on activity in the heat (90’s) while pregnant? I’m 4 weeks along and want to keep up golfing, but worried about the heat. (Doctor says it’s fine - looking for how any of you mamas actually felt)
Neighbor’s kid started practicing piano all day long. I support the learning but goddamn the kid sucks at it, and it’s hard listening to this trap house dubstep jazz all day long while I work, and I don’t want to wear my headphone all day as a solution. How to approach their parents? Can you even lower the volume of practicing piano?
Am I having some sort of existential crisis? We’re a month away from trying for our first kid and I just keep thinking about how sad I am to lose my current life of freedom/ease. I can’t get through Adele’s “When We Were Young” without crying. I know there’s beauty on the other side and motherhood is always something I’ve wanted dearly. I just can’t seem to get where the bout of sadness is coming from.
My dog lives with me in my apt with a 30 inch crate, he’ll be with my mother for a month. Her house is much bigger than my apt, is it bad to order a larger crate for there? Will he come back and be squished?
Today is my first day back at work (and first full day back in my physical office) after a few weeks off for parental leave. Needless to say, I am struggling to stay focused on anything other than wanting to go back home to my spouse and child. I know I shouldn't take an emotional temperature on day one, but it has been more difficult being back than I anticipated. Any tips for navigating the waters for the first day/week/month back?
Need advice for dealing w/ my mom. She constantly picks arguments when I bring up anything regarding my in laws. I’m pregnant and it’s my mom’s 5th grandkid and my in laws first (con’t)
Need some advice from the mamas here! Want to buy a baby gift for my step sister that’s a little more thoughtful or higher quality than what’s on the registry (most of it has been bought already anyway). I’m 26 though so I have no idea what’s actually useful for a new mom! Any ideas?
I hit 40 years old this month. Can I justify a 100k 997.1 GT3 while still growing my passive income streams or should I wait. Curious to get the perspective of older folks. $1.5m net worth. $770k retirement. $400k home equity. $330k stock. $430k HHI. HCOL city. One child under 5. Will get a credit union loan to avoid tapping investments. I spent my 20s buying sports cars new and regretted it financially. Been very disciplined for the past 10+ years. Am I making the same mistake again?
Random question but do you let your kids hang out in your bedroom and use your master bath if applicable? My kids always seem to want to use our bathroom instead of theirs and my spouse doesn't care but I grew up with my parent's room basically being off limits and think I'd prefer it that way.
Just started working at a big law firm about 3 weeks ago in a completely different field than I expected nor wanted to be in (but I needed to start working asap). I’m just a baby lawyer but I can’t stop shaking the feeling that I don’t even want to be a lawyer. Is this just nerves? the environment? or is this an even normal feeling?
As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.

Anyone have insight into revenue accounting? I’m interviewing for a sr revenue accountant position and wondering if it’ll be too pigeonholed. I also have zero background in this type of accounting so it would be completely new to me, but the hiring manager didn’t seem to mind that I don’t have any experience in this area. I’m fed up with the hours and lack of support in public and want to leave before next busy season for context.

I had the weirdest thing happen to me. The CTO flew down to meet with me and discuss start date, OTE Salary, and even emailed me the benefits guide. He scheduled a meeting with the CEO and said “offer letter to follow.” Three hours before the meeting the CTO called me to tell me they were rescinding everything due to a business decision that they aren’t filling the Solutions Architect role. Does this happen? What should I think of it?
79 interviews 13 super days 2,370 minutes spent interviewing 1 offer Absurd. Relieved, but absurd.
