Husband and I are moving to Denver area next year, we’re in our late 30s, one kid, no family/friends in town to give us the scoop.
We are looking for either a suburb in the Denver area or neighborhood in Denver with public schools rated high. It seems majority of schools in the area are not great (looking at Redfin ratings, they’re all below 6).
Don’t want a boogie neighborhood with stuck up people either (we currently live in one).
Any recommendations? Thanks!
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
Ladies, could use some positive thoughts and/or prayers. Had an ultrasound today that was a bit unclear. Doctor said that they are unable to tell whether or not baby might have a heart anomaly. Cont..

Anyone ever been offered the “mommy track” without warning and without being pregnant? Hours are lower than normal, but the firm is still expecting us to meet hour requirements in spite of COVID negatively impacting certain practice areas disproportionately (including my area). Was blindsided by an alternative arrangement “offer” from our COO (non-attorney) a couple of weeks ago - no details on what the offer entails, but this feels like a short-sided move, not to mention sexist. Thoughts?

I am a Product Owner with 6 yoe and a mother of newly born. My current package is 12lpa and average 11-12 hrs working with work from office for 7-8 hrs, remaining calls/work from home. In such scenario taking care of the baby has become very challenging.
I have been considering job switch for a while but have lots of doubt in my mind. Will a new mother be hired? Working 12 hrs will only ensure good package? If i insist on work life balance, will it affect the package? Thoughts plz
I have a serious baby face and I find that a lot of men who are my junior assume that I'm brand new at my job when they first meet me. I'm not going to wear a ton of makeup just to look older. Any one else have this problem?
The military saved me. I'm serious. I brought so many conflicts into the service, my father was an alcoholic, and I was an opioid addict. I've been clean for seven years thanks to my training. Forever thankful to the troops for that.

Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?
Naive question: How many yearly billable hours are reasonable for a good balance of work and home. I have a young child and don't want to miss out on important moments. I had one firm state that their yearly quota is 1900 hours and I don't have a frame of reference as to whether this is reasonable or if it means 12 hour days. I am coming from public service so billables are 100% new to me. Any insight is appreciated.
Ladies, I commend all of you who are pregnant and lawyering on the daily! I am 10 weeks pregnant and haven’t been working much since I left my firm in March. I tell my husband every day “IDK how anyone is pregnant and practicing law at the same time.” After a morning in court last month I was totally out of commission for the day. If you are still working as a lawyer full time and growing a human it is something to be proud of!

My best friend since we were about 6 years old is getting married. She asked my twin sister to be her bridesmaid, but not me. She said it was hard choice (i understand, she has other close friends) and she wants to still be apart of her day as a “female usher”.
I’ve never really heard of a female usher. Is this something any of you have seen before? Gonna be honest - I’m feeling a little down that she didn’t ask me but i know it’s limited
