I work with a colleague who’s a mother and I want to know how to help if and when there’s a lot going on. I live alone and went through some dark times last year feeling stuck but parents are worst hit by this last year and sometimes I’m not sure how I can support my own friends. My mom is in another country and I know she’s burnt out so when I talk to mothers I think of my own and how I’m helpless in helping my mom as much as I want due to travel. How can we help parent colleagues at work?
What’s your most controversial opinion? I’ll go first: I negatively judge teen parents for choosing to have a baby
Besides finding a form 1122, how can you determine if a sub is filing consolidated with its parent?
Woke up to the fire alarm sound only to find out a kid pulled it on the 3rd floor #sheratonframingham #supertuesday
I’m in an upcoming wedding and just found out the bride and groom aren’t vaccinated nor do they plan to. Do I pull out of the wedding? Most of the invitees won’t be either I’m guessing and masks are optional. I’m vaccinated and in the bridal party but I’m really nervous with the Delta variant. I want to be supportive but she hid this from everyone until now.
Going to meet a new dog today, very much hoping to adopt!!! He's a nine year old Pomeranian and he came from a puppy mill that was trying to put him down because he couldn't breed anymore 😭😭
In your opinion what is a better life - being really rich like making $500k a year or more but no serious relationship. Or having a partner and family but making below $200k?
Moms, this question is probably for our doctor but please be patient with me. Last Friday, I, my husband, 14 month old, and nanny tested positive for Covid. Today, 5 days later, all of us except our nanny have tested negative. Our nanny doesn’t have any symptoms and she asked if she can come to work tomorrow. What would you do? Honestly, I am exhausted. I cant be home with our energetic toddler anymore, He has also turned into a stage 5 clinger. The kid refuses to go to my husband 😭
The unthinkable has happened to a colleague with the loss of a very young baby. We went through some of the parenting journey at the same time so there’s a connection but never knew each other closely. I know I can’t fix it but I would love to do anything I can that is appropriate and sensitive. Would a night of accomm in a nearby country town be suitable- thinking get them out of apartment for a scenery change and a refresh? Or am I overstepping. Any ideas?
Used up most of my points and bought a pair of tickets for family friends to see their mother who is dying of cancer. After seeing a picture of those wonderful people together again I broke down.
Friends and I were discussing this over the weekend, what's the one thing that changed in your life for the better since having your kid?
My work partner has a toddler and frequently misses meetings or goes on mute due to kid-related things. They also have to disappear around 6pm for a few hours bc of kid. Even if/when they can chat later in the evening, they’re usually pretty checked out or I just don’t feel like brainstorming at 10pm. Long story short, I feel like I’m picking up a lot of the slack due to their inability to be around, but I also feel bad because obviously parenting is hard. Can anyone relate?
Just finished getting quotes from 10-15 wedding coordinators and about half weren’t vaccinated and weren’t planning on getting it done. One told me it’s because her “ob/gyn told her it could cause fertility issues” and she’s trying to get pregnant. I’m honestly at a loss for words.
I hate people who have kids and then act like their life is so much more busier than yours and that they have a life and if you're single you're prob just sitting around doing nothing. News fucking flash single people have a life we actually can be very busy. Jeeeeesuuusss.
What does your personal finances look like? Please share. Curious about whether I'm financially sound for my age group. I'll start.... Age: 30 Martial Status: Married, no kids Total annual comp w/ bonus: ~145k Current cash in savings: $25k Brokerage account: $5K
Told my managers I was pregnant and they were all very supportive and happy for me! Just feeling great about getting this kind of response :)
Food for thaught - What is wrong in expecting dowry when girls expect a groom bundled with a hefty package and certainly ask for maintenance/ assets after divorce........ To all the girls thinking of putting or labelling this post as heinous , if equality is what you govern, why asking for a groom earning 3☆ your package ? If you dont expect / look for this , this post aint for you.....
Did I miss a memo- why do I keep see teachers calling their students “friends?” When did that become a thing?
Kid (clearly a consultant of lesser age than me) tried to cut me in premier boarding line. I blocked him. He's now in a middle seat next to me. Hope he's not planning on having to go to the bathroom.
