Hi all. I am joining an AmLaw100 firm in June. I’m coming from a non traditional route to a firm (Banking regulatory compliance). Billable/collection hours are 1900. I have a kid on the way due late September. Would like to make sure my wife and kid are stable. I plan to tell the firm on Tuesday. Not sure of any formal parental policy. Any thoughts about how to best communicate it? Should I be worried about that impacting billable requirements? How is this most commonly handled in the industry?

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.

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.
Do you have any recommendations for baby carriers - specifically for bigger babies? We have a baby bjorn, boba wrap, and ergobaby embrace, but it feels like they are getting small / tight for my big baby boy. For reference, he is already over 18lbs at 4mos. Would love something that would be comfy for him but also distributes weight well, as he will only get heavier 🤪 Thank you in advance!

Attn: Biglaw associates who get solid reviews and are on track to bill 2100+ hours, repeat after me: “Thanks for reaching out. This sounds like a very interesting deal/case, but unfortunately, I am stretched too thin to take it on. I hope we can find an opportunity to work together on something else.” Repeat as necessary. Hold the line. Create the work-life balance you want by setting a boundary and aggressively defending it. Watch what happens. (Hint: you keep your job.)
