Any advice on how to hand in my notice to a boss who is on maternity leave? I've had a job offer come to me that is too good to turn down and they need me to start soon.
18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.
How do we help a stressed parent dissolve poor stress-management habits? My dad will drink himself to sleep when he's stressed and fill his waking hours with iphone games. The games will get his mind off work stress but only as a distraction, not alleviation of stress. Not sure how to support. We don't live under the same roof. He doesn't want to get help from a therapist and doesn't think he has a problem.
My daughter had a private school visit yesterday with a school we’re interested in where the kids go in small groups with a teacher to play. At first we thought it went great she said she had fun. After asking more questions we found out she got in trouble because she wanted to do something else during story time. How much could this impact her getting accepted? This is our first kid in school (pre-k) so not sure how everything works.

Was talking to the husband about what to do when kid 2 comes, if I'd want to go part time/flexible and keep them both at home while we wait for the pandemic to calm down (kid 1 is currently in daycare). He said he would look into it as well so we could split the time, no reason for one person to take full responsibility. I almost cried lol Ladies!! Talk to your husbands/SOs! Maybe not all will offer that solution on their own but see if they are receptive to the idea if you're struggling.
What do mom’s wear for their kid’s birthday party? We’re throwing a birthday party for our 2 year old who spent her first birthday in Covid lockdown. I’m also looking to color coordinate with her. I narrowed down on red as our color but am unable to decide on what to wear. Is a sundress too casual?

What is the parental leave policy in your company?I heard many companies do not offer anything more than FMLA ( which Ofcourse they’re mandated to provide).

Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities?
