Relocating from Chicago to NY after being remote for my NY job this last year. Best places to live? Late 30s, married, large dog, kid on the way
so I shouldn’t be annoyed but someoen asked me at a park if my kid is mine. My son is half white and looks white. It’s always my fear that people will think that i’m his nanny.
Parents of COVID babies: How long did you wait to have visitors meet the baby? Even your parents?
How do people deal with a really crushing, can completely, unfair loss? Filed a motion for temporary child and spousal support and the judge ordered my client to pay more than his salary. Obviously will be filing a motion to reargue and possibly an appeal. But those take forever and in the mean time I have a very upset client. It’s such a misapplication of the law and a horrendous judge but it’s hard to explain that to the client who is obviously very upset and can’t understand how this happened
Naive question: How many yearly billable hours are reasonable for a good balance of work and home. I have a young child and don't want to miss out on important moments. I had one firm state that their yearly quota is 1900 hours and I don't have a frame of reference as to whether this is reasonable or if it means 12 hour days. I am coming from public service so billables are 100% new to me. Any insight is appreciated.
Anyone else getting pressured by their family and friends to have kids. I am finally done with school and in a career where I make a good living. I’m only 27 and really want to enjoy my life without being stuck with a baby and the title baby mama 🤷♀️
What are some resources on child development? I'm a first time mom and really can't tell if I'm doing enough to be sure she's learning what she needs to learn via play, activities, books, etc. at 16 months.
A colleague of mine is struggling with a student who screams, cries, and throws fits when it is time to complete tasks. They have created behavior charts with something fun to work towards: it doesn’t work. They have called the parent and they just cry and say that they experience the same issue and they don’t know how to fix it. They have reached out to guidance and all they can say is “sorry, the child isn’t hurting themselves or others. It’s frustrating and I can’t help you.”
We just experienced our first meltdown with 2 kids under 2. We scheduled back to back dr appts for me and our toddler so my husband had to drive and bring everyone. However my appt was running late so my husband had to also bring the baby to the toddler appt. Baby was fussy and cried. Toddler decided to be clingy, did not want to walk and wanted to be carried. My poor husband had to wheel a crying baby and while trying to balance a toddler throwing a tantrum to the doctor’s office where they...
Best Bollywood songs for a fairly white wedding? My best friend getting married ( both of them are white) but she loves bolly music. Best recs? I came up with jalebi baby, urvashi and Mundiya so far 😵💫
Fellow bowl members, this maybe a silly question. For those of you who are single, how do you find other singles who also like to be child free?
I have been running into this challenge for almost 2 years now that I am unable to get far anywhere with my date when I present my dealbreaker i.e. not wanting kids.
I usually bring it up before even if I meet a potential date. I like to know that we have alignment on core values. It's a waste of time, otherwise.
I was appointed to represent a child in a substantiation hearing. Anyone in Delaware done one recently? Looking to pick someone’s brain about it.
Anyone co-parenting in different states? Looking for insight on visitation, general feelings, and how the child/children are doing. Thank you!
For the moms that work full time, I have nothing but respect for you!! I am at a point in my career where my husband and I are expecting our first and I want to start taking a back seat to my career and focus on family. For those of you that have a full time and part time parent working, what factors did you consider and how much income was reasonable to you?
Hi, everyone. How realistic it is to start a career at McKinsey as an Associate when I just had a baby and my husband also has a demanding job?
Positive: My mom lives with us and takes care of the baby a lot + nanny/cleanin, and I am hoping to not travel because my industry is in the city.
Negative: Burned out at my current consulting company, working 10-11hours/day. I haven't felt guilt yet, bc I am WFH and I get to see her from 6 to 9 am then 1-2 hrs before bedtime and then I keep working.
A long life lived doesn’t erase the pain of the loss. She was ours for 96 years; She was our Queen Mother. Her contributions to making a way for those who followed in her regal footsteps will never be forgotten. While I need this news not to be true, the reality of it is starting to rest heavily on my chest. Thank you Miss Cicely Tyson, but now it’s time to take your much deserved rest. Good night...
My husband is suffering from depression and OCD and has kind of given up on his career, working out, grooming himself, engaging with society and friends. He’s an amazing father but spends his day playing with our baby and playing video games. His depression has become a third person in our relationship and it’s destroying our marriage. He doesn’t think anything is wrong and refuses to get individual therapy or go to couples counseling. What can I do? Should I reach out to his fam?I’m miserable.
How involved are your and your SO’s parents in the wedding planning process? My fiancé’s parents are very interested, and they want to be able to help financially. Mine, on the other hand, have zero interest whatsoever, and honestly have never put in any sort of effort towards getting to know who the hell I’m marrying. Any time I text them about the planning to keep them in the loop, I just get a “thumbs up” response, and that’s it.
Help: I’m very new to this. Is this a good deal? Has everything from navigation to ventilated seats

Happy Repeal Day! EC 23 and OF Presidential Choice Barrel 17 courtesy of my whisky buddies. What’s everyone drinking tonight?
Happy Friday - Final Round.
Is Red Spot worth it? I love Green Spot and Yellow Spot but am a bit hesitant to get closer to the $200 mark for a bottle
Weller face-off tonight 😍
Curious what people think of this. Has anyone tried a French/Swedish/German whiskey?
Legent is tasty! This bourbon is finished in red wine and sherry casks, and blended by Suntory Master Blender Shinji Fukuyo - who has experience with truly legendary distilleries Hakushu and Yamazaki. A bourbon with noticeable fruit, caramel, and vanilla elements — and a very good bourbon for $40 at Total Wine. I’d rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
pretty excited to have scored me a weller full proof! great way to start 2021! what’s something you scored that you’re happy to share good times!?
Recently got some nice Rye Whiskeys as a gift. I know they are good for cocktails but do people typically drink Rye neat or another way?
The King Ranch is phenomenal for its price and availability. I’m a sucker for the OFSBBS.
Tried Calumet Farm bourbon tonight and was not at all impressed. If you see it, don’t waste your $$$.
It’s an 80s-range bourbon in terms of proof but for the price, I’ve found 90s-range proof bourbon with much better flavor served neat.
Tonight's pour. Got this for $23, so figured why not. VERY light & you can really smell and taste the vanilla.
Today’s pickups 👍
Who here is a bit of a glass snob-or is it just me-and what’s your go to glass? I went from a regular Glencairn to a fluted cognac glass, and now I’m all about a Waterford straight sided tumbler.
Cheers to the weekend!
Somehow I convinced my dad to spend his Father’s Day/week helping me with built-ins. I spent 10+ summers growing up around his job sites so it was great chance to reminisce.
I’m waiting a couple more days for the paint to fully harden before loading the remaining bottles in the cabinet top.
Wow that’s awesome, great work and great collection!
Wow I’ve been looking for Weller Green Label for months. Good for you!
