How is everyone’s firm doing?
I hired my first employee; it didn’t work out. I’m more gregarious and I am wondering what other extroverts do in their solo practices to interface and connect with people a little more often. For background my shop has been open a little over a year (14 mos) so I’m unfamiliar with social interactions when we’re not in the middle of a pandemic. Also, I’m making sufficient and sometimes even good or great money but I am finding very little to no joy in the work. Know any tricks to fix this?

Hey, is there a DSA and coding round for SRE roles also in Amazon?
I am a 12 years experienced SRE but my work has always been around systems, databases and OS and that too around administration? So, I haven't had any exposure to coding after college though I am pretty decent in python and bash scripting?
Hello fishes ! I’ve a query regarding the $1100 reimbursement. I’ve seen in some hr docs that we’d be eligible for wfh equipment every 3 years. Does this mean the $1100 resets every 3 years and we’d be eligible to buy some laptops/other equipments worth $1100 every 3 years ?

Moms, my 18 month old son gets super upset anytime his dad and I hold hands, hug or kiss each other. At first this was cute but now it’s getting annoying. Anyone else’s kid do this? Any advice please? Thank you
I'm about 18 months post-chemo and today I was able to pull my hair back and it finally looks normal. I can't express what a major victory this is! No tiny, stumpy ponytail - a completely normal one. 😭😭
Waiting for hair to grow back from bald is a looooong process & this is a major milestone. The little victories are around - just need to look for them!
Any mom here ever bring up (where context is appropriate) that you have a child in a recruiting process? I’m working in a banking industry where it 100% dedication to work is expected and WLB is almost non-existent. I like the job and have a solid family support to help with the childcare. I feel like it isn’t the best thing to surprise bosses or coworkers that I have a child once you join, but at the same time, I don’t want to be misperceived about my capacity early on. What do y’all think?
I have an awesome opportunity to apply for a promotion that would give me additional responsibilities but a faster track to leadership. I am also 10 weeks pregnant with my first confirmation appt next week. I want to go for it but feel bad about applying when I would go on mat leave in about 6-7 months, pending everything is on track with my first appt. Wanting advice on whether to apply or not and whether to disclose the pregnancy?
I hate PE. It’s Christmas Eve and I should be stuffing stockings but instead I’m working for an “urgent” request. This is after weekend work covering urgent requests. I want to throw up.
Question for the moms! We are working on transitioning to a sippy cup. My lil dude puts it his mouth and holds it but doesn’t know to suck to get the milk/water out. We have tried two different cups so far. Is there one you recommend or do you have any tips to get him to suck on it?
Looking into a bassinet and want opinions on Moses baskets. We have a 2 story townhouse so could be good to move around. Anyone used one? What did you think and what brands are good?

Happy Resurrection Sunday. I have RA & Fibromyalgia. It’s really hard balancing working from home & a family (married w/ 3 kids). I’m having issues with flares. I feel as though it is affecting my relationship with my family more than it is affecting my work. The reason I took a stay at home position was because I wanted to spend more time with my family and because of my health issues. I want to find that balance even though I have auto immune diseases. Anybody else having this issue/problem?
Anyone else suffering from Sunday night blues...wondering just how I’m actually going to work and “home school” at same time...the school and teachers have been amazing but still going to tough on Mom
Started with a new law firm in a new practice area in the fall. Now I’m pregnant with my second child and due this summer. The firm offers up to 4 months of leave. I can’t think of a good reason why I would shorten my leave despite being relatively new at the firm and in the practice area. I’m honestly concerned I will resent it if I do. Would you shorten your leave under these circumstances? If so, why?
Heading out on mat leave and would love some book recommendations. Not necessarily mom/kid related stuff although am open to it! Am a mom of 1 toddler (2.5yrs) and love historical fiction, dystopias, as well as thought-provoking non fiction of all kinds. 🙏

My 4yo is in a serious “I don’t want to go to school” phase (school=daycare). We’ve been getting him there with long talks/negotiations and the teachers tempting him in with toys but today was especially dramatic. Any tips?? There’s nothing wrong with the daycare, and at the end of the day he always tells us that he had fun etc.
Anyone ever made a shift from HR into Product Mgmt and love it? Any tips/advice you can share?
