One of my biggest pet peeves is when I see people referring to their kids as 30 months or 36 months. No, you're kid is 2.5 or 3. What are some of your biggest pet peeves?

I’m guessing you don’t have kids. When kids are that young each month can be a different phase in their development, 12mos to 23mos is still a “one year old” but a 12mo may be talking their first steps and saying first words, while a 23mo should be walking easily, and forming short sentences.

A good rule of thumb for baby age, use days until 2 weeks, weeks until 2 months, months until 2 years. And don’t let online meme culture drive your pet peeves (that’s mine).

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year. My goal is to make it on that promo list in April 2021 - But thats when I am due. When should I inform my team that I am pregnant and how do I let them know that I am still willing to work hard for this promo despite my pregnancy? Thank you!

So far I’ve been through 1 IVF cycle. I have one embryo that is frozen waiting for transfer. My doctor is wanting me to do another round of IVF to back eggs for baby number two down the road. Has anyone been through this? I know of two people around my age that got pregnant naturally with their second baby after IVF. Does anyone know about banking embryos for future use instead of transferring? My insurance doesn’t cover anything so all this of out of pocket.

Accenture 🐠 what is the paternity leave policy? Having our second and leave looks like secondary gets 2 weeks but are we allowed to take primary once our wife goes back to work?

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
