We didn’t talk about this up front - but, typically, what do you do in these situations for vacation/holidays? If she goes on vacation, do we still pay her for those days? If we go on vacation, do we still pay her for those days (supposing we give plenty of heads up)?
I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.

I’ve gone through two maternity leaves at my firm and am getting the impression that because my “numbers” (billables, revenue etc.) haven’t been as good as other associates who do not have children (or stay-at-home help for their families), I won’t be put up on time. This isn’t surprising to me, but I am ALSO reduced hours and I’m not sure how I will ever hit the numbers that other associates typically do (cont’d)

I was an overachiever as a child and now I’m just an anonymous cog in a wheel. I make zero difference in the world.
I know I may sound like a total entitled bitch but I get so irritated with my in laws. I love them dearly but they always say they want to “help” with the baby - but that means that they watch her for 30 minutes and then if she fusses or needs a diaper change they hand her back to us. I’m okay with this except that they ALWAYS say they want to help. And then when they come here on the weekends we are furiously cleaning and cooking because that’s the only time we have. I told my husband (cont.)

I'm moving to Europe in a few months I'm also struggling with depression since covid started. I'm not running away, per se but I definitely could use a fresh start. Loneliness is definitely at the heart of the issue. I've spoken to friends/family about it, and they're doing their best to hang out but everyone got in relationships over covid so their time is limited. I see friends like once or twice a month - much less than pre covid. Any advice about staying sane these last 2 months?
