For a small fee, I'll show up to your house, kick you in the vagina repeatedly, eat all your food, throw the trash on the floor, poop and rub it on the walls, then tell you how much I love you. That's what kids are like. Speaking as a mom.

Where do you live, daycare cost alone make me not want to have another. I’m close to dc and will tell you it’s easily another 2k a month for daycare alone! Unless you find an in home daycare that you trust but even then it’s atleast 1k a month. Diapers and wipes can cost over anywhere from 75-100 a month. Formula is $40-50 every week and a half or so. Love my baby to pieces but def a money sucker lol

I live in a lcol city. Daycare is usually 1k with in home ones around 600. Still expensive though, not looking forward to it 🥺

Go to your friend’s between the hours of 8pm and 8am every night for the next 2 weeks. That’ll change your mind fast.

This. Offer to babysit two nights in a row. Kills the desire immediately.

Ask your friend to share the delivery story. 90% the that should help 😅 have heard horror stories from my friends and family. Don’t ever want to put my body through that level of pain and discomfort

I’m in my 11th year at a boutique plaintiff’s firm. The name partner I work under is great in a lot of ways. I ln general it could be worse. But the guy is a baby. I’m certainly no slacker. In fact I’m excellent at my job. But the guy is obsessed with people being in the office before 9am. No matter what’s on/not on the calendar or what I’m doing personally. Today I got in at 9:12am and apparently he’d been ranting and raving over my whereabouts. When is it time to not answer to this crap?

Hi all! I’m doing some research on parental leave policies to make a case to improve ours. How many weeks does your policy offer? Does it differ between “primary” and “secondary” caregiver? Birth vs other means of growing your family? I’m particularly interested in independent shops, but would love to hear from folks at the network agencies as well. It you could comment with your agency name, I’d be super grateful. Thank you thank you! ❤️

My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)

He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
