My son just turned 2. Missed afternoon naps x2 days because of appointments. He usually naps from 2-4 pm. He’s been crying for the past hour, so do we let him continue to cry until his nap time ends, or take him out after an hour (which would be in 10 min)? Feeling like a terrible parent.
Just found out I’m pregnant and scheduling for an abortion tomorrow morning. I’m scared and I hate this ongoing nausea. Feeling the Christian guilt, but my husband agrees we’re not ready yet. Anyone have experiences they can share??
A good laugh before you sleep DiaperDon is trending on twitter and your big baby is having a meltdown 😢 his feelings got hurt way more than the 80 million votes.
Can’t wait to become a father
How do you deal with such situation. JAN, Dec, for a new project agreement happens on language, best practices, library, architecture. The second lead goes for a paternity break for 1.5 months. The other team continues development, codebase, cice pipeline, ux designs. Etc.
The second lead comes back. ASSUMES nothing is done, have a meeting with EM, Architect and goes on to work on new architecture. Redefine everything and openly saying no work has been done in 2 months.
I am new to FIRE concept but very much intrigued- to get freedom to follow my passion earlier. I am 48 and my SO is 49.
Currently assets - 1.1M in combination of 401k, Roth and trad. IRA. 120k in brokerage. We both currently max out our 401k and Roth every year and also invest 1k every month in brokerage.
30k in 529 for 1 kid - hopefully will not need much more. 4 mths expenses in cash.
I would love to retire in 7 yrs at 55. SO wants to work until 62.
So you think we have enough to retire?
Walked my baby to work today in a baby carrier (daycare is next to office). After skipping a morning nap he fell asleep 20 min before I had to be in the office for an internal leads meeting...(cont.)
I’m 6 months pregnant and scheduled a 30 minute meeting to chat with my HR rep to talk about our parental leave benefits (specifically how to navigate taking additional, unpaid time)…. She declined the meeting and directed me to review the policy documentation online and email her with any specific questions I have. Is that normal? Feeling a bit unsupported but also not trying to overreact
Is the EY 16 week maternity pay 100% of the salary ? I was reading the FAQs and could not find anything that said 100 % of pag provided in the 16 weeks of eligible time off.
Our company is rumored to be dissolving, while it’s a misfortune- I am looking for paid strategy roles hybrid or remote, so that I can spend more time with this kid.
Moms with multiple kids and both parents working outside of home full time - how do you manage the normal stuff in the home that keeeps it going? Grocery, cooking, laundry, cleaning, regular upkeep? Can’t find the time to do a lot but also can’t afford to outsource it all especially with childcare costs. Tips please!
Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
Husband wants another kid (and so do I). We’re blessed to be able to reproduce but also I already feel like I’m dying and disappointing everyone already. Why does this profession make us believe we...

Currently pregnant for the first time, 34 weeks. Just found out my hospital is requiring masks during labor. Anyone who has given birth, do you think this will make it more stressful/difficult? I’m in no way opposed to masks, just didn’t think about wearing one while actually in labor
Anybody have a kid with school anxiety? My 7 year old will go to the nurse with a stomach ache when schoolwork gets challenging, but is miraculously fine when she’s at after care, or home. I reassure her that sometimes learning new things can be hard, and even as a grown up, learning new things at work is hard for me, too! Any other ideas on how to help? I already emailed her teacher about it and spoke with the school nurse. They are also “on it”, but I want to know how I can be helpful at home!
My wife was able to get pregnant off oral fertility ....she has PCOS... she took progesterone and letrozole.
Its been 5 months since the baby was born and her period has not gone back to regular cycles - we hoped that the fertility and pregnancy would regulate her menstrual cycle.
Can we artificially create that cycle using progesterone so that she can have a period every month? I wonder if she would ovulate on progesterone alone too in this circumstance. Is anyone regulating on progesterone?

Hi all. I am joining an AmLaw100 firm in June. I’m coming from a non traditional route to a firm (Banking regulatory compliance). Billable/collection hours are 1900. I have a kid on the way due late September. Would like to make sure my wife and kid are stable. I plan to tell the firm on Tuesday. Not sure of any formal parental policy. Any thoughts about how to best communicate it? Should I be worried about that impacting billable requirements? How is this most commonly handled in the industry?

I know some of you may not be old enough to answer a question like this, but any of you start your careers in the 80s? I ask this because during an internship I had a year ago I met an older guy who worked for the company I interned at who told me back in the day, the big 8 firms used to be way different. The partners would do coke in the office, they would go day drinking with the clients etc. I'm not sure if he was full of it or telling the truth. Does anyone know if it was like that?

Please advise.. I initally cleared rounds of UST and asked for 20 which they gave me.

Is there a ceiling in BD&L work both in consulting and in industry for those who didn’t do a PhD or MD? I feel like most of the individuals I see in these roles at senior levels have one or both degrees. Am I “wasting” time taking projects in these spaces if I only plan on getting an MBA?
