I have three kids, so I was hoping I could sell a kidney. And maybe something else non-essential - is appendix donation a thing?

400/month 529. In private school now, but depends on where you live. Some public and charters are just as good or better. Plus don’t discount the importance of having your child socialize with all walks of life.

$700/month per kid into a 529 (only 1 kid for now). My rough math suggested that rate for 18 years would cover ~2/3 of a school like UVA out of state tuition. Who knows! I originally thought I wouldn’t plan on paying for most of my kid’s college because my wife and I paid our own way and made it work, but that sentiment changed a bit when she arrived!

I’m not actively planning on private school. We’re in the city now with a 1yo and will have to make a call about city public vs private versus moving out to the near-in burbs down the road.

Hi all. I am joining an AmLaw100 firm in June. I’m coming from a non traditional route to a firm (Banking regulatory compliance). Billable/collection hours are 1900. I have a kid on the way due late September. Would like to make sure my wife and kid are stable. I plan to tell the firm on Tuesday. Not sure of any formal parental policy. Any thoughts about how to best communicate it? Should I be worried about that impacting billable requirements? How is this most commonly handled in the industry?

A couple days ago my wife hit me in the head for the first time. Whilst holding our 2 year old daughter. Wife was angry cuz I don't like her mother (she stayed with us, in spite of me saying this is a bad idea). She never shouts and usually hates confrontation. I'm no angel, and I *did* message her with why her mother annoyed me... But I'm having a hard time dealing with being hit even tho it left no marks. If I hit her I think the narrative would be different. Anyone help me process this?
