Pre-child I was very ambitious and hard working. As soon as my son was born I exited to a 100% WFH industry role. Bond with my son is 10/10, however, I am so unengaged and checked out professionally. 1) has this happened to others, how to fix 2) considering return to consulting, but fear missing out on time with family & impact to our bond. How do others manage?
Can I be rockstar dad and consultant?
Could anyone please clarify this?
Is the tax exemption limit (of 25000) under 80DDB for both parents or 25000 for each parent?
So in short - 25K+25K = 50K for Both Parents or is it just 25K for both.
How many rounds of egg retrieval did you go through to get a good embryo? I just had 4 sent to genetics and none of them were genetically normal. I had no problem getting pregnant with my first, conceived him naturally in two tries. I just had a myomectomy on Weds and got the genetics report on Fri so I’m a little on the struggle bus rn. I’m 39 and am worried I’m doomed.

Freaking out right now - I’m five weeks four days pregnant. Have kept taking pregnancy tests and had my darkest line to date this morning (dye stealer) and my HCG was 3350 16 days post transfer. I just had bright red spotting in my panty liner and was slightly visible in the toilet when I peed. Am in no pain in terms of cramping or nausea. Called my clinic and they’re telling me not to worry unless bleeding becomes worse. Do you all have any similar experiences with this? Feeling discouraged.
What do mom’s wear for their kid’s birthday party? We’re throwing a birthday party for our 2 year old who spent her first birthday in Covid lockdown. I’m also looking to color coordinate with her. I narrowed down on red as our color but am unable to decide on what to wear. Is a sundress too casual?

I was at a friend’s. Her and her neighbors are all moms and get together for dinner while the kids play. A father showed up to drop off kid while the mom was busy elsewhere, instead of going about his plans he stayed with us. I felt so much sexual tension with him there its so weird. I was attracted to something about him and i know i had his attention. I could barely look him in the eyes when he would make conversation. I wanted to… you know what. SO WEIRD. Hes not even a 10! Im so confused.

Last week, I had a partner throw me on something last minute and I was not able to work on my own assignments as I originally planned. In the end, I only had like 30 minutes to blaze through an assignment before I had to run out to pick my toddler up from daycare. I got there at exactly 6pm and she was the only baby who had not been picked up. It was so heartbreaking to see her sitting there, sad, waiting for me. I had to stop myself from crying…

Is anyone else not (at all) intellectually stimulated by consulting after a couple years?

Advice needed: I started with a small company ~6 months ago and one of the big selling points for me to take the job was to get my clearance back. I previously had a TS but left the public sector for ~a year which made it inactive. I was told by the recruiter several times that they would put me in to have my TS reinstated but if it couldn’t be, Secret at minimum. Fast forward 6mo and I received a clearance lower than Secret due to the nature of work. (Cont in comments)
