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?
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
My mom decided that tonight she’d confess: 25 yrs ago she told me my 1st choice college did not give us any financial aid and I couldn’t go there (so I went where we had it). She admitted I almost got a free ride but she didn’t want me to go there so she lied. I feel betrayed. Loved my school and have no regrets. Just feel manipulated.
Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/

For the attorney moms, how do you focus/prioritize work? I’m a recent-ish mom and have been back to work for about 2 years at two different firms in that time. But I constantly struggle with guilt and putting off or slacking on work because it feels like my brain is hardwired to prioritize time with my child. I always feel like I’m lacking in one department. Will it ever get better? Any tips or similar experiences welcome!

Why do previous generations feel the need to belittle the hard work of younger people? My parents always insist they used to put in as many hours as I do when they were my age, but I know it’s not true because I was actually old enough to remember it! (They could afford having a kid. I can’t)

Anyone move from Deloitte to KPMG (or visa versa)? Any strong feelings on wether it was a good move or a bad move? I have an offer from KPMG for significantly more money (I’m pretty underpaid at D) but don’t hate the Deloitte culture or my job. Just won’t get anywhere near the comp KPMG offered to pay me. (I doubt they’ll even counter for the full amount if I tell them) Thanks for the input.
