How are you working moms letting your employer know. Your child has to be home because of class closures?
Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?
FB family - I have a return leg today from India to US on Delta/KLM airlines. I've been down with the flu for past few days and don't think I can endure such a long flight. Only a silver CNTD.

How do you divide your time between your kids? My second is an extra needy and demanding, high spirited kid. My first is laidback and easy going. I always feel like the eldest gets the short end of the stick and never gets enough of my attention even tho she’s always been more attached to me than my husband. She never gets one-on-one time with me as it is since her sister (now 2) is still super glued to my side. Any suggestions for juggling this? Or to ease the mom guilt?
Can sit for CFP vía challenge route bc Im a CPA. Wife/baby due in April, have April 15th tax deadline, and all of my continuing education is due by the end of March. Is it suicide to test in March?
I am newly pregnant, vaccinated and boosted, and trying to figure out if I need to stop going into the office and increase the medium level of COVID precautions I had been taking. I had previously been going in 2-3 days a week and working remote the rest of the time. Also my husband travels a fair amount for work and idk if he should be trying to limit travel/office time as well. Will ask my Dr too but curious what level of advanced precautions others in this situation have taken. Thanks!
Ladies, would this be a huge turn off? “Lives with parents, can’t date him” type thing? I’m an only child and my parents bought a new house in 1996 with an unfinished basement. Since I’m paying their house off anyways, I finished the basement and made it incredible. Designed the whole thing myself and have everything I want. It has its own entrance, and the backyard is beautiful. I have an amazing, large double shower, and a beautiful kitchen and nice closet with laundry.
It’s Friday Baby! 🥂

At a boutique firm for just over a year, I know this isn’t the best place for my growth, but a promotion is coming. Am I better of sticking around or try to go to MBB or big 4 at an associate level?
We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???

Is it better to be a big fish in a small pond, or a small fish in a big pond? Just got recruited with promotion/pay bump for a bigger firm but I’m in a great spot with my current firm. Suggestions?
Have an offer in the Bay that is 100k -- moving as a single late 30's male. No debt. Though I really like the job, I'm worried about the salary -- I keep hearing that's not enough money to have a decent standard of living. I would plan to get a car eventually and though I want a 1 bedroom, I'm not opposed to a roommate. First time I've had to rethink a great opportunity because the money was not enough -- can't tell if I'm being overly sensitive to other people's money needs or not?
