Planning a baby shower for my friend. Her original due date is March 17 but since she’s got identical twins, her doctor wants to induce her no later than 2/24. Is mid-January ok or that’s too late? I’m scared she’ll go into labor earlier…
Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?

I have been offered a director position at a pharma company offering $250 k. While I’m very happy about it, I am also a bit skeptical.

Anyone here have experience leaving a federal gov job before the obligatory 12 weeks after parental leave ends? What kind of financial penalty could I expect if I choose to do so?
Anyone ever been offered the “mommy track” without warning and without being pregnant? Hours are lower than normal, but the firm is still expecting us to meet hour requirements in spite of COVID negatively impacting certain practice areas disproportionately (including my area). Was blindsided by an alternative arrangement “offer” from our COO (non-attorney) a couple of weeks ago - no details on what the offer entails, but this feels like a short-sided move, not to mention sexist. Thoughts?
How have you adjusted to being a driven professional woman becoming a mom? I’ve been struggling with it since trying to conceive, being pregnant, & being a new mom. Would love some sage lady wisdom...
I generally have a good relationship with my parents, but when it comes to making decisions in my life, big and small, I’m expected to run them by my father. I find this mentality patriarchal and demeaning. I’ll ask for advice when I need it and do value their opinion, but I don’t need my father’s approval to make my own decisions. Any other Asian F experience this?

14 days alcohol free!! Naltrexone plus therapy is what finally made it click into place. it was easy to drive by gas stations without stopping for that tall boy. Had my first real trigger though yesterday when I was stuck in the car with the kids fighting in the back. Didn’t give in but I seriously felt like I needed it. Analyzing the trigger I see its tied back to getting lectured in the car as a kid and feeling trapped and withdrawing. So pleased I’m able to make this progress.

I just got a second $500 as a child tax credit. This is a credit against my child tax deduction for 2021, right? Weird that people like us are getting checks from the gov, but I guess its faster/easier than means testing.
My sibling and I can't see eye-to-eye on much anymore... it's been tough during a time when we should be united (parent in the hospital, holidays). I know I owe her an ammends for a horrid accusation I made. However, I can't bring myself to do it just yet, and I can't seem to shake the negative accusation. I've also been talking about it to her adult child 😮💨 I was supposed to be the cycle breaker...

Succulent owner (snake plant & hedgehog aloe) here and need advice 👋🏽
Watered both plants last week but noticed they’re still pretty puckered/dry. Would it be too much to water them again? (Currently at north-facing windowsill where they get some direct sun). Soil seems dry after testing with a chopstick but I am super anxious about overwatering!
