Did you cave and give your kid a device way before they should have one/before their peers because you're a "techie" family?

Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?
Told CRO I wanted to break in a 1st year assoc and analyst on this deal. They have performed so, so bigly. Feel like a proud father. #HappyVP
One of my biggest pet peeves is when I see people referring to their kids as 30 months or 36 months. No, you're kid is 2.5 or 3. What are some of your biggest pet peeves?
Daycare moms that nurse, what is your at routine? I want to get up before baby gets up but boobs are super full so taking a shower means so much leaking (sorry TMI!). Also do you feed solids before you leave or just pack it for daycare to feed?
Any tips for working w/ your father in this biz? 😬 see the huge opportunity to step into something that’s already built vs struggling in your first few years but I do worry about the father-son side
I feel like I wasted a morning. I’m pregnant, can’t focus on work, can’t take my adhd meds, in a new position with no support, and I’m nauseated all the time. I don’t know how to prioritize my work like I have in the past. Has anyone else been in this situation? Any tips?
Looking at some condos/townhouses in Gold Coast/Old Town area. Love the neighborhood, but also have to consider elementary schools in the next few years. How is Manierre, the neighborhood school, so bad? I feel like I'll be forced to send my kid to a magnet/private school or live elsewhere.
Universal Orlando trip? I am seeing an uptick in covid cases and articles sayin the area is "crisis mode". We have a group all vaxxed except for 1 -small child and 1 half vaxxed (next shot isnt until we get back). Would you go or is this fear mongering again?
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️
Have had a pretty okay family relationship growing up. Recently a parent saw some health issues and I’m feeling pretty guilty for picking an office that’s been quite far from them, which I picked so that I could “experience life” some more. Feeling selfish
Any daycare tips and tricks? My baby will be 5 months when starting daycare / me going back to work

My husband wants to name our son after his brother who he loves a lot .i am so pissed that he yelled at me when I am 6 months pregnant and unable to do anything , will be the one going through labor just to have my son my BILs name as first name , my husbands name as middle name and last name of his family. FYI- me and BIL live in different countries and I have spoken to him handful of times over phone and that’s it . He doesn’t want to discuss any other names anymore.
I think my 2yr old son is having severe social anxiety issues… he is perfectly fine at home, playing and laughing and talking. But outside especially when other people get closer to him (especially small kids at his age) he immediately freaks out, becomes very anxious, and would try to flee the scene as soon as possible. Ever since he’s a baby we take him to play ground everyday and he is still the same. Any moms experienced the same?
One of my parents suddenly passed away. I don’t think a week is enough for me to recover and plan for the other parent. The right thing for me and my family is at least three weeks off while I focus on future plans for the surviving parent. I’m not sure how my team will react but who cares.

I was contacted by a Facebook recruiter for a Data Scientist interview, but I'm not ready to take a new job right now. Should I take the interview for the practice or would that look bad if I want to seriously apply next year?

At what age did your parents retire / do you want them to retire? My mom already retired at 62 but my dad is still working at 66 and I don't feel good about it.
My husband and I have concert tickets to a big outdoor festival that was cancelled for covid and is now happening in late August. His brothers and some college friends are flying in to stay with us. We just found out we're pregnant and I'll be 9 weeks by concert time. We aren't ready to tell anyone but we can't think how we can ask them to cancel without explaining. We are all vaccinated and are in SF so cases are low, but not zero. Any advice?

What’s a typical salary % increase for a general strategy consultant at B4 exiting to industry? Would be a startup or large food company.
I didn’t get a hair cut during COVID and it’s now pretty long. I keep it tied back and on camera it looks like it’s still short. Frankly, I want to keep it long. No one has said anything to me as yet, have even had a few in persons with partners. It’s 2021, do we care?
How’s New York these days? I’m having to return to an office, but I can choose to go back to SF (not preferable) or NYC. I have worked at HQ but NY doesn’t seem like a ‘satellite office’ by any means.
Anyone have insight into culture at Guggenheim partners? Specifically on the total return bond team?
Does anyone know what the salary range is for a first year FDD Manager at the B4? HCOL city. TIA
How should I think about this decision. I have an industry offer in my current MCOL city at a very compelling salary but would have a long (45min to 1 hour) commute at least a few days a week. I have leads in a HCOL city where commute time is TBD, as is the offer. My spouse can work remotely for for his mental health I think he should try to go into the office. We could move to the burbs so that I don’t have to commute but then he would have to look for a new job or work remotely. Cont…
Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management. I have led internal analytics product development at a prior firm, and have led clients through developing/improving “products” for their teams to use however I have not led “consumer facing” products and my experiences have not been as “formal” as many PM roles ask for. I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.
Any ladies with PMDD get an IUD to help? My doc is recommending one but I haven’t been on BC in 20+ years bc I had some adverse side effects on a hormonal pill (I know BC has come a long way since the early 2000s but I’m still scared). Also does it cause weight gain?
How can I dispose off old towels and bedding? These are beyond being donated, so I was wondering if there are any recycling options?
