Had a great weekend linking up with fam, went wine tasting, fine dining and all. And I love it when my six year old says she wants to be a CPA when she grows up. But do I really want her to go the CPA route? My younger sister’s a doctor, brother in law’s an engineering manager at alphabet, both grossing 600K annual Bay Area combined both dumb as hell when it comes to business/finance. Sorry maybe just hating a little bit here. Am I wrong to suggest my kid to choose tech instead?
I haven’t involved my mom in wedding planning much because she stresses me out. But today, I took her to my dress alterations appointment and she left pissed because I didn’t let her take pictures. She said I wasn’t creating the sweet mother daughter experience she had hoped for but that’s just not me. I even bought the dress by myself in the first place. Anyone else struggling with pleasing their mothers during wedding planning while staying sane?
Who uses Class Dojo or Remind? I would like to set up my computer classes on one of these for parent communication. Which one would be the best?
Hi ladies! Very transparent post!, today is rough! I try to gentle parent my 3 old son but he doesn’t listen! Only does when I have to raise my voice, take away something, or mean mug 😩😩
My daughter is the total opposite. She actually listens and is growing into an emotionally intelligent and stable kid.
I feel exhausted with my son to the point that I get frustrated because I don’t have time to recoupe or unwind. Any advices, tips?
How long does it take to get over ptsd from being in a toxic micromanaging environment?
I was a top biller and top manager at a large staffing company for five years and was treated like a child. The place was crazy. Six months into my new role I’m still scared to request PTO or afraid that my boss would be mad if she found that I took an afternoon break to walk my dog.
Moms, did having daycare at your gym help you to go more often? Did the environment help?
Hubby thinks that we can workout at home (peloton, weight bench, online classes, jogging stroller) or in our community gym & pool. But I'm excited to join a local sports club with lots of amenities (classes, squash, tennis, swim) and 2.5 hrs daycare / day.
I'm remote so getting out of the house occasionally would be nice, plus give baby some exposure. Baby will start full time 9-4 daycare soon though.
Any good baby moon recommendations and the best time to go? Currently 12w based in Washington DC area and starting to plan. On the fence about flying right now with Covid numbers, but considering places where masks are still mandatory for air travel (I.e Germany, Portugal)
Moms, would you recommend international travel with 2-3 month old in early 2021 if the COVID situation improves? My family is not able to travel for delivery and I know I am being selfish, but I really want to spend part of my maternity leave with my parents and family. This will also be a chance to spend a month with them, which is super rare given we never get leaves that long! Anyone been this mad? Is it my 30 week hormones messing my brain?
How long did you keep your baby sleeping in your bedroom? I know the guidelines but anecdotally sounds like very few people follow them for practical reasons…
Hi moms! I’ve been wanting to leave my company for about two years now but held on for my recent promo. Now my partner and I would like to get pregnant stat. I realize that is not guaranteed to happen on the first or even 10th try. Should I continue to look for a new job and try conceiving at the same time? Mat leave is important to me- I want to make sure I’m protected and have pay. Anyone been here before? What did you do? Anyone find a new job while pregnant and negotiate mat coverage?
What are peoples thoughts(pros & cons) of living in a Garden Condo 2500 sq ft(with basement) for a family of 3(1kid) until the kid goes to college.
Or is it better to move to a single family home to give kid more space, big backyard etc. ?
Are you keeping your kids home from school/daycare at any sniffle or cough? Our preschool policy this year is "any sign of illness". If my kid gets the sniffles, it's inevitably 7-10 days. With three kids this can drag on for weeks, and i am struggling.
Texas is coined a football powerhouse, but I’m having a hard time finding teams/events for my elementary school student. Can anyone point me in the right direction in the loop or in the Galleria area? Bonus points for facilities/areas in the loop where Black boys and men play/gather. I’d love my son to have that sense of community as he’s the only Black kid in his class, and we haven’t met many Black families at the closest local park to us. Black is not a deal breaker though! Please share.
Curious. Is there any other teachers out there who wish they had parenting classes to help special need children because as the teacher you don’t want to overstep the teacher-parent relationship? Like I have one parent who just needs some extra guidance with their kids, but I don’t want to overstep my boundaries. Any suggestions?
Thinking to take a trip with my baby when she’s 3.5 months old. Just to get out of the cold. Bad idea?
A parent of one of my students told admin she thinks it's irresponsible that I won't be grading over Christmas break. I let the students know to get any work they need graded in before the break and I'll get it to it during our workdays in January. Apparently that's not fast enough for her 🙄. Is it wrong that I'm sort of pissed off by this? Should I say something?
Anyone recently gone on maternity leave in California? Mine starts next week & it seems like the only option to receive the State paid disability portion is on a debit card instead of direct deposit?

What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
Advice plz: is there anyone who left as an experienced senior and regret not making manager? I’m at my promotion year this year and honestly I don’t care if I make manager or not. I always know that I will exit public accounting one day but I never knew when will that be. The past year my mentality has shifted quite a bit, perhaps it has something to do with my newborn child. I can feel the counting down clock starts ticking. Continuing in comments.
Hi everyone. A PDM specialist here. Joined Deloitte 5+ years back as ‘Senior Solution Engineer -On-site’.Later in June 2017 all these ‘on-site’ folks got rebranded as PDM. Slowly started to realize how PDM is getting sidelined as a ‘discountable’ group. Sometimes I feel contract jobs are better than being at PDM , but obviously tied up with D for visa related issues.No career progression so far and don’t see any positive changes in the near future as well.I think it’s high time to call it a day.

I’m addicted to LinkedIn of all things. Not even looking for a job anymore and actually cringe at most of the content but can’t help but check notifications and doom scroll.
do you work to live or live to work?
Can’t seem to get over my crush on a workmate. I can’t just stop talking to the person because we work on the same project. It’s been months. I know it’s inappropriate and I just want to stop feeling this way. Please help/give tips.
Dude, does everyone have COVID right now?!? Pretty much all of my friends have it or have had it during the last week.
I did not go to law school because I was passionate about the law. I just wanted a better paycheck and didn’t know what else to do. I’m three years out and I really don’t care about the work I do, just that it makes me money. I see people in bowls talk about their dream jobs, and I can’t help but wonder, what’s it like to have a dream for your career?
I can’t forget about a guy I met 2 years ago and wanted to date him. We we friendly and had some chemistry, but I was afraid to break the friendship having only known him for like 1 month. Then Covid came, we started losing contact and he moved to the other side of the country. I believe he has a girlfriend now, and I even dated someone for a couple months, but I still can’t get over him.
People like to use the blanket term “six figures” for high salary. But is 100k really considered a high salary anymore? I make 130k and don’t feel rich.
I used to want kids but now I don’t. Atleast not any time soon. Does that make me an asshole and how do I talk to my wife about it who thinks we’re ready to start a family?
I have a pasta sauce that’s a bit of a cheat but it’s so good you could drink it. One jar Gia Russo Spicy Sicilian sauce, one large can of crushed Marzano tomatoes, pour in a good red Italian wine lime from Montepulciano and count to 2, then a good olive oil and count to 2. Let it simmer for 45 minutes covered. Nothing else. It’s frigging amazing.
Didnt have the will to get out of bed so been working and taking all my calls from my bed since this morning and I gotta say I'm loving it
Sigh. Does anyone actually like their boss these days? Does it matter? Do you require that your boss invest in you?
At 25, my bf and I make $200K a year combined. It’s kind of absurd to me how even though that isn’t really that much money in the grand scheme of things, it really is enough to do whatever we want in life and so much more than so many people that work their asses off daily could dream of pulling in. We’re both in specialized areas, but it doesn’t feel like we work that much harder than a store manager or a teacher or a janitor. I guess our economy just doesn’t feel fair :(
