Hired a new nanny and currently on day 2. I am still on maternity leave so helping toddler transition and baby. She seems nice but tardy and my toddler is a rocket. My husband made breakfast for me she came and ate it. She helped the toddler nap and now sleeping lying next to him 🤦♀️. Baby cried and she put him in car seat and tried to rock him along with car seat . She was so nice during the trial (sweeet) but I am confused now on what did I sign up for ! Can I get some tips please ?
Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother. I work from home in a very demanding job as a manager and I feel horrible that I have to sacrifice time with my children to work. I want to be successful at work and climb the corporate ladder, but at the same time my children don’t get the attention they need, especially my 6 year old that can barley read.
Before someone says comparison is thief of joy, share your experiences and thought process if possible... My wife and I have a very stable career here in the US with 400K HHI and just hit our 30s with our first kid. But I personally know friends who have very successful start ups (read unicorns) in India and several others going down that path. I don't feel very complacent but don't want to risk moving the family now in search of a startup in India (either my own or joining one). Contd...
6 days PP here. What are your tips to get my baby to suck consistently? She keeps falling asleep.
Hello, Suggestions? So as we all know, not every child learned or logged in during the Pandemic, and that put a huge dark cloud over most students. What suggestions do you have for students that don’t take work seriously, are lazy, and are at least 2 years behind. What are you doing at your school. I’m doing extra interventions and using Learning Farm to back up my guided practice. This strategy has helped a nice bit of students, however over two handfuls out of 60 aren’t grasping anything.
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.)

Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid

My wife and I are in a bad spot. A close friend of ours recommended individual and couples therapy for us both. Tonight, my wife blew up on me and told me I wasn’t worth going to therapy with and that I’m a horrible father to our kids. Could use a word or two of encouragement right now. Never felt so low.
4 days PP. Husband was not feeling well and tested positive for covid. What should be my next steps? I will get tested in the morning. And now should we separate into different rooms? Should I call the hospital as we have a 4 days old baby and he should be checked? Baby and I show no symptoms but I am just so torn apart after the birth that I no longer know what I feel.
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
