Someone I don’t really know, $20-$30. Someone I’m pretty close with, $60

$50 on average. I’ll spend more on a baby vs a birthday gift cause baby stuff is so cute lol

$0 for birthdays

like

$80-150

Agree with EY1

Birthdays- nothing other than a night out. Baby shower- $75-100 for friends since HS & family

If you and your SO go to the baby shower/birthday do you double it?

I wouldn’t double it, maybe add 50%

If i’m close, $200. Otherwise $50-100

My friends and i all agreed to not buy things for ea others bdays but we pay for dinner or whatever activity we do together. Its too much of a slippery slope. For baby showers, close friends maybe $50-100

Depends on the friend and if traveling, etc. I couldn’t make it to my best friend’s shower, so I bought her car seat. It was about the cost of what a plane ticket would be. I think on average, about $75-100.

Really close friends, normally around ~$75 spa gift card

I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.

Hello Everyone - Looking for advice from Deloitte practitioners! I am a specialist senior at Deloitte, got back from maternity leave in April 2020. I had my offering leader schedule a call with me to notify that I have been rated a low performer because I had 46% utilization and mediocre firm contribution scatterplot. My project scatterplots have been consistently good 5,5(top right) over the last 3 years. Do they not consider these things before rating someone as low? Feeling very low!

Any thoughts on when it's OK to ask for a transfer within your agency? I'm a PD for parents in child welfare cases. I started in September 2021 after clerking for a year while studying and passing the bar. When I took this job it was not clear that it was all remote and I'm pretty miserable working in insolation. The regular criminal division is in person, at least to the extent that their hearings are in person. People ask for transfers all the time just not usually this early.

Mother in law constant interference has caused friction between me and my partner. She is over possessive about him to the extent how he should be fed , what he should be fed, what he should think and how he should perceive things, when he shd be happy and when he shd feel hurt everything is communicated to him in a subtle way. He gets influenced too.

She had come here for 6 months stay to help me post my delivery with our baby . But hardly she did. I don't know how to improve my partner

My gut tells me to go although she is lovely, in so many ways but I have a child and she has a child. I believe the treatment is not the same to my son compared how I treat her son and I just have a gut feeling about it, and my gut is simply telling me to walk away. I will choose my child over anyone. I know I have baggage but I know I am a great father to my son and I believe it should be looked more a as quality from a person rather than negative.

Moms, what is the standard etiquette and timing for your parents to come help out when you have a new born? I am due in April and we live in a small 2 bedroom apartment in NYC. Every one in the family wants to come to NYC and help when the baby is here and I’m grateful but I don’t want to get too overwhelmed trying to host people in this small space. I was thinking my parents could come for a couple weeks, leave and then my siblings can take turns? Thank you! Any advice will be appreciated
