Happy Father’s Day to those in the community who can’t be accepted by their families for being their true selves or don’t have a good relationship with their dad. Know that you’re not alone and that you’re loved.
Just had my d&c today. Definitely feels like the worst day of my life. My poor tiny little baby. We loved you so much.
We have hired a nanny for the first time for our 10 month old. While our baby plays with her for some time, he cries when she tries to put him down for nap or changes diaper. Today was day 2 and she seems to be at her wit’s end. I didn’t expect a smooth transition but then I don’t see anything improving even a bit. Nor do I see her trying different approaches to keep him engaged. What did your nanny/you do to help the baby get comfortable with nanny in the starting days?
Please try not to judge me as I put this here. I’ve gained a lot of weight during the pandemic, close to 15 lbs and I’m unable to shed it, which is delaying me mentally to try to get pregnant. My goal weight is 125 and then get pregnant so I can reasonably lose weight again after delivering. I’m 5” 3’ and the weight really shows. Am I crazy for thinking it this way? Feels like I’m being silly and selfish 😞 but it worries me that I’ll never be able to come back in shape again.
Help me out here. Sooooo, deciding whether or not to have a child is not our right and up to the government to decide, but having and AR 15 is a "God given" constitutional right? Were AR15's even invented when the constitution was written?
We are not allowed to have abortions to protect the future lives of unborn children only to be gunned down by armed lunatics later on in life. So ridiculous.
Currently have a 5th grade girl who is struggling with classroom behaviors and choices. When questioned, she says she wants to be a boy, but her parents won’t allow it. Obviously, she is struggling with more than making good choices at school. Her parents are very kind and appreciative of all we do for their child, but they are also clearly struggling with this. Anyone ever been in a similar situation or have some advice on how we can best support the student?
Mamas - how did you all approach taking parental leave? I will be starting my “real job” at 31 and plan to have a child within the first couple years. Would it be terrible for me to go on parental leave after only being at a job for a year? I plan on taking the full 12 weeks, btw (and possibly stacking PTO/OT & sick leave). I’ll be in a government job, not a firm.
Feeling like a horrible father today. I always make sure that I’m loving and happy and excited when I’m with my son, mainly bc my father was an emotionally unavailable narcissist. But yesterday I lost my temper trying to get his movie going on his kindle tablet in the car and ended up smashing it to pieces.
Hope everyone is well.
I am looking for a part time role for additional income source. I currently work in Category Management team of a Packed Food Company in Mumbai, India.
When I look for the part time roles I only find shady MLM and some delivery jobs. Nothing wrong in delivery jobs, but I am more inclined towards WFH role as me and my wife are pregnant.
Can you guys suggest where can I find reliable part time roles?
Not consulting but a meme at the very least…
Happy Father’s Day out there for all you proud papas
How do you react when someone announces they are pregnant? Are you happy for them or are you neutral? do you ever comment negatively? I personally don't agree w the decision to have kids and therefore usually ignore social media pregnancy announcements and am neutral if I see them in person (like I don't say anything rude, I just don't say anything at all). Am I being too harsh?
Furthermore, do you still get baby gifts for people, even if you don't support the idea of them having a baby?
Planning to do road to Hana in Maui. I am confused what points to do and which ones to skip. Currently 20 weeks pregnant and don’t want to get on trails that are slippery and muddy or are dangerous.
If you're a woman and child-free, do you have regrets?
Cards on the table: I do! I'm 38, with a family history of natural pregnancies up to 50. I.e.: no bio reason why I couldn't still opt to get pregnant.
But, also: my family tree is, basically, cancer, heart attack under 30, psychiatric basket case and congentital heart defect galore.
I'm a minor statistical miracle here. And, knowing my math, I won't have kids.
Still, it hurts. Happy for friends having babies. But I wish I could, too!
I have been wanting a dog for like 10+ more years, now I’m finally a full grown adult but I suddenly don’t know if I can take that responsibility and handle what will happen in like 15 years when my fur baby will eventually pass away. Also I hated to say but I don’t trust any pet stores but idk where to find a good breeder and puppies are so so expensive recently. Should I still get a dog?
Anyone with reflux (gerd) baby? My girl is 8 weeks old which means I haven't slept for 8 weeks. How did you survive and how did you organize your life on maternity leave and after returning to work?
Adding analytics on resume question:
What stats do I use to show growth if I can’t compare one email campaign to another?
I could use CTR but that doesn’t seem very impactful as a one time stat. (ex., stating CTR was blah blah %)

Anyone PMs want to spot check my resume ? I’m thinking of switching fields and sent out applications a couple months ago but got no replies. I believe it’s the resume so want a quick professional look.
Anyone with school aged kids NOT enjoy going to their activities/games/performances? I do, my husband does not- he looks at them like chores- and I’m struggling to understand. My parents always went to my stuff (to the extreme), his almost never did (which he complains about). Looking for perspectives… thanks!

THE EMAIL HUNTER CHANGED HIS PICTURE!!!
So True 😐
I’m billed out at $195 an hour. Assuming a 40 hour workweek (lol) I’m paid a little over $36 an hour (76k/yr) My realization is about 90% and my utilization is at about 110%. When I asked if my raised could bump me to 80k instead of 76 it was implied that I was out of my mind.
What’s the discrepancy here? There’s no way this firm is adding almost $160/hr in value to my work through software, workpapers etc. I just fail to see a justification for this big of a gap.
General curiosity: what's people's endgame with PA? Are you on partner track? If not, what do you want your next job to be? Do you have a timeline for that to happen?

This is probably not the right place to ask but I’ll give it a shot. I live in VA but work in MD. My taxes were withheld in MD, but the taxable income would be subject to VA due to reciprocity agreement. Do I need to file two returns? I would have expected the taxes to be withheld VA on my W-2.
Is grass really greener on the other side?
