I am about to return to work after maternity leave. I have a 4 month old and a two year old. Our daycare is periodically closing due to COVID. We don’t have family nearby to help when daycare closes and I’ll be headed into busy season upon my return. I’m already on a reduced schedule. No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.

Moving isn’t an option and I have enough money saved up in case they fire me on the spot. Just thinking maybe there’s a time to ask where they won’t fire me right away and don’t know if I should take advantage of the market now or wait as long as possible. I’m a 2018 grad specialty corp.
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.

I need help coming up with a creative title for my students. I teach job skills, and we basically act as volunteers in the building by completing various jobs like delivering mail and working in the cafeteria. We are known for this role so I want us to have an official title! We are the Spartans and we call our program “essential skills” if that helps! Most of my students have limited expressive language so I’m hoping to give them options and let them vote.

If I was a junior on a team during a campaign launch, is that something I can put in my book? I helped during the concepting phase, was responsible for keeping the boards up to date, and wrote a lot of the supporting materials (print, social etc) but obviously I was not on the shoot or the lead on writing the script. As long as I’m clear about my role is that acceptable?
