We’ve made it pretty clear that our home is not baby-friendly. I also kicked them out while I had conference calls.

I totally agree. My best friends have one child, and I was always clear that if they cover stay with me, he needs to be old enough to do everything for himself. No babies, no little kids in my nice, not childproofed home.

😟 It worries me what I’m going to do if my friends try to bring their babies/ kids over. Do you just suck it up and not say anything? What if it’s an adult evening with loud music and alcohol? What if they come for a weekend 😟 When I have a wedding I also plan on making it 21+, no exceptions. Good luck to you!

At least the loud music would drown out the sounds of the baby!

Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?

My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)

I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.

Anyone receive an offer & negotiate a start date months down the road to take advantage of a better maternity leave policy, or any other reason? Wondering how many months is reasonable to ask for.

CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.

Teacher, I need help …. When you see, out of compliance IEPs, students not getting FAPE, treated differently for integration from their peers… who helps you? Union won’t, parents are not even involved with their child so that’s not a help, I emailed all the possible emails for Department of Ed , and all those listed under IDEA/ADA… I don’t know what else to do…

My three year old now doesn’t go to bed until around 9 pm (and gets up around 7/730 am which we prefer… don’t want to move that schedule). I used to squeeze in extra work from 8-930/10 but it’s no longer feasible. How do you manage? I see my options as… 1) find a job that is more 9-5 2) start waking up early to work in the morning (not a fan as I think sleep is very important) 3) trade nights with husband where every other night I work vs him while the other hangs with the kid after 8

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
