I cheated... we aren’t supposed to do real art in the morning. We watch an art video and discuss in the morning, then in the afternoon we post an instructional video and the kids do a small project at home... I cheated yesterday. I handed out air dry clay and went to town with my 3rd grades.... the kids said it was the most fun art class ever. I will get in trouble for passing stuff out, but I needed it. So did the kids. Best art day all year!

Any PwC parents here? I am only 6 weeks pregnant and have absolutely no idea about anything. Any advice you have on timing and or what I need to do … would appreciate it!
Parent died with accounts at Fidelity Investments. FYI Fidelity made one of the hardest periods of my life worse—“lost” documents, inconsistent policies, four days to respond to an email, non-communication between teams, outright lies. I don’t know how an organizational process can be so mismanaged. They have literal interns (mis)handling the entire transfer process.
I found out I am ~ 5.5 weeks pregnant after I missed my periods and through blood tests. Few days back I had sore breasts and stomach cramping.
Although I still have cramping but the breast soreness has reduced a bit.
Should I be worried? I have ultrasound scheduled this Friday!
Laid off in May and now applying for a new full time role w previous employer. I’ve also been approached by someone in a related team at same company for a contract role through at least next May. The hitch is I’m 4 mo pregnant, due in late Feb. I feel like I’ll need to disclose this for the contract role but I don’t want to potentially jeopardize the FT opportunity. What would you do? So far I’ve just said I’d be interested in considering the contract if the FT position doesn’t work out.
So, how much work are you giving elementary students? I just got the calendar from my kid’s teacher. While I am teaching from home, I’m supposed to make sure my kid does 4+ hours of work.
Anyone have any experience with high deductible insurance plans with a newborn? Trying to decided if I should add my newborn onto my HDHP (I've met my $2700 deductible through delivery but my baby will have his own $2700 deductible to meet). Alternatively I could add him to my spouses regular insurance with a lower deductible/higher premium.

Got an offer from a startup with no maternity policy so I’m negotiating for one. State mandates 9 weeks paid, but how long did you 🐠 realistically need? Is part time return helpful?
My husband already picks up a disproportionate amount of household duties due to my hours. Since I’ve been pregnant and miserable, he’s picked up even more (we have a 2 year old). ...
How do you all set boundaries and keep work from creeping into your time with your family every day? As a new mom going back to work I’m finding this to be difficult. I was always available and did whatever needed to be done before having a child, but now I really want to be able to shut down at the end of the day and be done, so I can soak up time with my baby.
I never beat these games when I had them on my Sega Genesis as a kid. Picked it up from Walmart today for $5, pretty excited
For the moms - what type of maternity benefits does your firm provide? What are the best ones out there?
Have a question to Asians here. I’m mid-30s from Asia and am making lower end of 6 figures currently. My older sister was making more than I did until a few months back and lost one job due to covid so is now not making much. But she is married and has a house and a car of her own. She spends a lot of money on herself and buys gifts to her boyfriends/lovers. I just found out mom is going through major surgery in my home country and it costs nearly 6k. I asked if she wanted us to help her pay.
Is it a good idea to look for new jobs at the same time of planning for getting pregnant? Do companies have policies around how long you need to be around before you can take maternity leave? If they hire me when I’m 3 months pregnant, should I mention that I’m expecting in 6 months?
Single women in STEM, do you have to field questions about being single during the holidays like I do? I'm 27, and every single Christmas my mother or grandmother ask me if I've "met any nice boys" and "when I'm planning to make time for a family." I get that they're coming from a good place, but I'd love for them to ask me about my work and how fulfilling that is instead. Tips for (kindly) getting family off your back?
I am dealing with depression and anxiety due to upcoming criminal charges against my father and his partner (im the one pressing charges), a DOR diagnosis (I am single, 33 and AMH of 0.23 with no contributing lifestyle factors), a failed first egg freezing cycle, and fear of losing my job due to being on the bench for nearly 3mos. I don’t know what to do and am feeling increasingly desperate. (cont’)

I suddenly have more black heads on my nose then the usual. Only thing different I did is that I am now using Paula’s Choice 2% BHA toner and I got a facial 2 weeks ago. Could it be the toner? Are facials one of those things where if you get it done once, you’ll need to always keep getting it? Last time I got a facial before that time was September 2021. Help :( what to do to get rid of subborn black heads?

Am I tripping? Everyone loves calling my daughter (2 months) "lil chocolate drop" or "look at all that chocolate". I love my daughter's complexion, not only because it's mine, but because it's beautiful. However, I can't help but feeling like ppl "other" or make it weird by avoiding saying dark. Calling her dark is acceptable and appreciated. I know "chocolate" comes from a place of affection, but I just can't embrace it 💯.
I listened in on this discussion about "Advocating for Black and Brown kids in US education systems" VERY useful information here. Sharing the link
Seeing local parents reacting to the public school lottery results in DC, got me super nervous about when it’s my kids turn.
I hate the idea of having so little control.

Hi Parents, need recommendation for taking care of kids hair. My kids are mixed race and their hair gets easily tangled to the point where we spend an hour to untangle the mess. Hair is also dry and the conditioner and or oil doesn’t seem to help. What are some of your go to products and routine? TIA

Anyone have kids that struggle with night terrors?
My daughter had one for the first time last night and it scared the crap out of me. It was like she didn’t know who I was.
My 5 year old son demanded a haircut because he doesnt like his curly hair. Its too curly. He wants hair thats like Fletcher's. (Fletcher is his white friend from day care). My son and his sister are the only blacks at the day care. I dont know how to broach the subject with him.

Any of the sisters deal with gestational diabetes but already had a restrictive diet pre and during pregnancy?
Doctor says I have it, but I honestly don’t believe them. I don’t eat cane sugar (not even in sauces), gluten, dairy, or soy. So not surprised I couldn’t process their drink-I don’t consume stuff like that regularly. I walk a mile or do HIIT training 5x/ week. The condition doesn’t run in my family (and my mom has 4 sisters w/kids-good sample size) (cont’d in comments)

I’m a little bit all-over the place and not sure where to start financial planning from.
I live in a Tier-1 city and think it’s necessarily to move to Tier-3. It’s important that my kids grow up in a house vs. apartment. Also need to stretch my dollar as far as possible.
