Will have my first baby in the middle of my second year as senior at a mid-sized firm. Anyone (specifically women) been thru the same thing? Advice?
I think DCFS should be called for a student and we brought it to the principal but because the students grandmother works at the school they decided to let her handle it. What would you do in this situation I don’t think the child is being physically or sexually abused but I don’t think his living situation is safe or healthy for him?
Considering PE, but concerned that the work-life balance is just as onerous, if not much worse, than consulting. Can PE folks be great at their job and have some semblance of a family life (ie evenings with fam, mostly free wknds, vacations without interruptions)? Don’t want to be an absent father
Had a baby recently and, for the life of me, can't imagine going back to work. My husband also works extreme hours. How do you parents with demanding careers do it? I'm thinking of moving to industry.

What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
What/how does your relationship change with your husband after having a baby? There was an earlier thread related to this, but I can’t find it.

Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!
Thoughts on Costco sofa sets / sectionals? Not the most stylish, but looking for comfy and durable and strain resistant to survive baby and dog and extended family. Doesn't need to last forever, but 5 years of enjoyable comfy sitting, sleeping and reasonable use is all I expect. Had a trendy gorgeous velvet masterpiece before baby. I miss those days. 😔 Anyway, any advice, fabrics, or other things to consider?
Quick question to new fathers. Do you wake up at night when the baby cries to give milk/change diapers? Or your wife does it fully? I don’t do it and I feel pretty guilty.
I’m compiling a list of mini red flags in relationships: 1) Men who “just don’t like Hillary Clinton”, 2) Elon Musk fan-boys, 3) Men who have an opinion on your choice of birth control. What are yours?
Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Why exactly is the lateral market so hot? More deals going on? People leaving big law completely? More people taking parental leave? A mix of these things?

Gave up my business class seat for a kid who was looking at me, as she boarded, and the drink I was offered, her mom said - she always thought it was cool why people got bigger seats to sit. She is 3!
