Hey ladies! I’m wondering if anyone has had luck finding leather pants (or even coated jeans) in 00 or 000? I’ve ordered about 10 pairs now from my usual brands in the smallest size (Paige, Mother, Joes, Hudson, Good American, Agolde and even Abercrombie) but the leather pants all seem to be larger in size than typical jeans. Thanks in advance and happy Wednesday 💃🏻
Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?
I need advice, has anyone been in a similar sit? Met a guy on Bumble in March. He had gotten out of a 4 year relationship in December. We dated for 2 ish weeks, on date 3 we made out and touched (no sex but we both came). After the date he tells me he needs time to himself, his mind is all over the place. We’re May and he reached back out (to congratulate me for my sisters baby). Said he’s in a much better place mentally, wants to meet up. CONTd in comments
Hi All. I am a Mom-to-be. Have ample of time to plan for the arrival. Looking to learn from the experiences of new parents here. Please share your experiences around: 1. Support system at home (during and after maternity leave) 2. Joining the workforce back after maternity leave. I have frequently seen women change companies after maternity leave. What changes at workplace?
Fishbowl parents! Did you take the full parental leave? How much time off? Did you feel there were any repercussions? First time dad here - currently on paternity leave and loving it!
Hi ladies, I am an experienced, trustworthy, CFP®, actively looking to purchase a small to mid-size practice in the Chicagoland area. I am with LPL and part of a Hybrid RIA. I’m open to different acquisition options including partnership. I posted this on the succession page, but I am really interested in purchasing a woman-owned practice (being a woman myself and acquiring my mother’s practice in the 90’s). If anyone is interested or know anyone who is, please pass this along! Thank you.
I know everyone throws this type of question to the bowl but I've been going hard on my finances the last couple of years since I'm trying to buy a starter home for our family. I've paid off student loans, no debt, just a car lease and wondering how this holds up. I'm 35 and my networth is about $345,000. I hear by 40 you should have tripled your salary but that's seems a lot especially for a first gen Latino who parent immigrated here poor. Thanks in advance!
Shoe recommendations for work when pregnant?
I have a kid in 7th grade. I am looking to start 529 plan with 20k seed money. One of my friends suggested to open an IRA and do a backdoor conversion to Roth IRA and put the money in index fund (eg VTSAX, FSKAX, FZROX etc.). I wanted to get some feedback from this group on the pros and cons of these options for a 4-5 year investment timeline from growth and expense ratio perspective especially when it comes to using the fund primarily towards educational expenses. Thanks in advance!
EY specific question - Do you have to pay back parental leave if you take all of it and quit before returning to work? General question - is it in bad form to legitimately take parental leave thn quit
How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)
