1 year old on a cruise? Any tips and tricks? What to bring extra of? What to be mindful of? What did you wish you'd done / brought / known? Baby isn't in daycare yet, just home with us and extended family help. Has gotten his first cold, but nothing else. We take him out weekly and he's very social and adaptable (eats snacks, naps anywhere, formula fed) and loves having new experiences (though at this age everything is new). Cruise life lessons! Tell me everything!!
My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours. They were supportive early in my career and when we had one child, but our second was born a couple of years ago and all the additional work they put in at home, the lack of family time and lack of couples time is becoming a big strain on our marriage. We are in a high cost of living city so will have to undergo a major lifestyle change if we forego my biglaw..

30 year old male daddy hunter. Slide into my DMs if you’ll be my father figure until the end of time.
I'm about 12 weeks pregnant and I really don't like my current agency. I was planning on sticking it out until maternity leave and then bounce shortly after I return but the team is just a mess and I keep getting dragged through the dirt for things that are very much not my responsibility (cough cough copy.) Has anyone started a new job mid pregnancy? How do you tactfully feel out their maternity leave? I've had a few recruiters contact me and I reached back out but wanted a game plan.
I am currently covering for someone on paternity leave. This means I've doubled the Sales Managers I'm supporting as well as the clients I'm supporting. I don't mind doing the work but I'd like to ask to be compensated for the increased workload. Has anyone done this? If so, how did you go about it? I'm relatively new to Tech so I'm not sure how to start the conversation.
Just got dumped after 6 months. We had a serious connection so I thought, said we loved each other, talked about future, looked like I was everything he said he wanted. But he thought I was out of his league, more established, there was an age difference, I have older kids, he has one young child. I lurked on his IG and he is on vacation with someone else 😂🥺 I’m HEARTBROKEN. How tf do I recover?!?

I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me. The to do list full of, “send emails to X about Y,” “follow-up re this,” “revise the 100 small things the baby lawyer drafted.” Tasks that might take 15 minutes to an hour individually, but all together it’s a lot. I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.
Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.

Hey guys… I’m a case worker in child safety and I’m someone who loves being outdoors/dies at a desk all day. I’m hoping to organise that at least once a week I can go to a cafe and catch up on all my case notes that need to go into the system. So far the only reason I’ve been told no is that “if you do then everyone will want to and then no one will be in the office” … how can I convince them that I work better out of the office and get this freedom & mental break for myself?
Till when will this Brahmin bashing continue. Edho caste system adopt pannita, namma enna thappu panom ippo. Why are we being bashed all the time? If Muslims can be proud of their religion and custom, why can’t we? Random ramblings.

I have 1 one year old and have told my husband that I want to get divorced. He is being immature about the process and is just trying to make everything difficult. Sometimes he says he will move out, then he says the baby and I should, sometimes he says he wants custody when the real reason im leaving is his lack of interest amd resppnsibility toward our family. I can tell he is hurt and is upset that i dont love him anymore and want to get everything ready to make the exit easy. How do I start?

"TCS has announced bands for all its associates as of 6th May ( associates above C3B will get it a week later), but hasn't announced any performance bands for associates servicing notice period. They have simply done this to cut costs, and not pay them their hike, for whatever period they're gonna stay in TCS." Tata Consultancy Fishes, what can we actually do to get this resolved and get the well deserved compensation? Can we approach legally or at the least internal escalation?
