But we'll start with a little bit of light stuff namely back to school shopping. We just got an email yesterday. I'm very excited about so. We've done back to school episodes for a couple of years. Now and sarah has always mentioned how awesome it is that her local public school. When her kids went there had a fundraiser.

"I sentence get as how i started my podcast and why anchor. fm Did extensive research. An anchor is is great for newbies like myself it. They provide good support and it is easy to use the cost. You can't beat it Just starting you can start for free and this is another reason. I shows anger. Fm i learned from my podcasts up cycling as both are in function. I started this podcast with a background of having been up cycling for a couple of years. I was creating all kinds of artwork and crafts and southern them in different places than came. Kobe and the world's source stopped. I had already started doing this. Podcast and had a great deal to say about my experiences. In all the things. I had learned as an upcycle at even intended to try to get some interviews with some companies and if possible the recycling program where i live but as i said the world stood still then i decided to dedicate more time to this podcast. The plus. i made about what i would say in do with with this podcast. Change no potential interviews no stories to tell of my new experiences up cycling. Then i realized i had to do things differently. I also realized that had more research to do out to stay up up to date. This is the thing the happen that i had not expected to happen. And that. I took for granted that i would have all these material and exp- experiences readily available and i didn't i realize i had much more to learn before i can move forward and share with others this. I took for granted how much i had to share with those and i needed to continue to learn in different ways now that the world has changed. And so did i well for now remember. Life is about possibilities not impossibilities. To next time stay well..

"Somehow you learn a lot about publicity over the years but starting an email newsletter earlier would have been much better. But i guess twenty two year old laura too busy with her leather jacket to figure that out so wait. Did you do the book title. yeah i guess if you have to explain the title of a book you'll lose people suggested general. Which book does that refer to grind hopping the early career book so that was like a mid twenties kind of thing that i i wrote. There's a reason people have not heard of it on something. That's the only one. I haven't read today ago. Ever want to. You can get for it all right. Let's go to our question for the week. Do you wanna read this winner. Sure all right. And i think this is a very opera question because i think a lot of people are going through similar. Yeah so we can. We can sort of disguise it as we will be yesterday. Yes among the city in their second. That's important we'd love to hear an episode on best practices and strategies for returning to the office now that many companies are calling for their employees to return. I work in new york city at a leadership position at a major company and recently found out. I will need to be in office three or five days per week this fall during the pandemic we moved out of the city so i'm struggling with how to plan for both parents to be out of the house. Twelve to thirteen hours a day to allow for commuting. My husband has to be in the office due to the nature of his job and was for the entire endemic so he cannot work from home. There seems to be limited flexibility at my company. So i would need to prepare to have childcare five days per week if business needs require it hosted sixty hours per week any tips for making this work. Feeling like a dual career household with commutes isn't really a viable option. But i would hate to have a major setback in my career. There aren't many work options for me in the suburbs. I worry if i leave new york city than my salary cut would be substantial enough. That i wouldn't be able to afford fulltime childcare. I also don't want to be a weekend parents and barely see my children now. That have gotten so many great memories. While working from home any suggestions i realized a career is not linear and perhaps in a few years i may need to find something more part time until my kids are older. They are two and four. I think many working mothers are facing similar situations so thought. This could be a good topic to hear more about great question. Yeah i'm hearing this from a lot of people right now that you know pre pandemic. They were in the office and had negotiated. Maybe occasionally work from home now. They've worked from home full time for a year and some places are really trying to get people back in almost fulltime and a lot of people are just not interested in doing so. We had a few thoughts. I mean one is. You could move back to the city. I mean certainly some people who moved out of cities thinking that location with no longer matter if it does turn out to madder than the same rules pre pandemic applied like having a long commute is what often makes a big job unsustainable especially if you have two parents commuting and what we tend to see a lot of is that mom winds up taking scaling back because something happens in the middle of the day kid needs to be picked up at school and nobody's anywhere close to the school and it's just harder to restart a career once you've gotten off that track you can but it's hard so we suggest you could move back inner so both of you had a short commute. Both of you would be there and that might have some upsides to it. We also suggested really trying to codify this three days in today's home that this is the max that would be that you absolutely can work from home at least two days per week. Ideally that they would be flexible. You choose which ones you want to do. So you know seeing if they would want for that instead of really saying okay. Well maybe you can come back three days a week with the understanding that we're pushing toward five and then there's always the option to find another job because a lot of places are in flux right now so it is quite possible that you'll find something more prestigious better paying end more flexible and you just don't know until you look yes agree with all of those and one additional option. Is you know you mentioned the three days. Actually looking at what your work duties are and even if the rule across the board is three to five who knows maybe there's somebody immediately above her who she could explain why in her particular special case. It would be better for her to be two days. Maybe she could be a quiet exception. That is able to do things a little bit differently. And as for the moving back. They said that they had been planning on moving out anyway. So that didn't really apply to them but i will say all the news. Headlines seem to be saying that the previously extremely pricey areas of like manhattan and san francisco are actually areas. Who had the largest recent drafts in average rent. I'm sure it's still extremely expensive but like moving back when be the craziest thing especially if you're lucky you had time to move out right and your house is appreciated. A whole bunch so a lot of housing markets are still very hot right now so it could actually be strategic financial decision although caveat. Don't take any real estate advice for me. I spend as discussed from sarah's learnings she. She may have not wished to have bought the house that she bought. Yeah i have a slight fact checking thing. I have to say from what i said earlier. Apparently the original cosby trial was moved to the pittsburgh area. I think and then the retrials and sentencing hearings were in my area in our local courthouse. You like something. But why was i worried about getting jury duty or something for and then i was like okay because there was something here it wasn't it wasn't just that it was made up out of whole cloth in my head..

"You think yes. I think this doesn't apply to you because you have all this. Pto to use the. It would make sense to just use that i before committing yourself to this uber structured. Longer day thing during your summer. Now one thing i think we should both give you credit for is a love how you thought about how you would use it like the idea that you're going to schedule these nice fund mornings for yourself and read into a bike ride. You can keep that but instead of plunging it into this structure i say just schedule. A pg oday. You could schedule one every week and not make a dent in your six weeks of pto for the summer. Yeah especially if you already have some of the stuff scheduled and the. Don't take half a day on monday. Take the whole monday. And if you're only getting three of them like take those three mondays as pto and like throw to others in there too. That's five days of pto. She's got thirty of pto like you're not gonna use all of that by the end of the year. If you're not careful so definitely yeah. Don't over think this. I mean i wanna give a shout out to this company. That is at least thinking of of trying to do this now. Many kinds of work. It's like what on earth like. You could just take a half day off and make time later like things are flexible anyway. Particular people who've been working from home over the pandemic. I assume that this is a very structured like somebody has to be in this chair dealing with certain things because she's got a backup if she's not there so it's in this case it is a set like hourly in a place kind of job and so her company thinking well. How could we be flexible given that our workers are hourly in a chair. Doing a certain thing that needs a backup if someone isn't there and and this is a great idea like saying okay. Well you could choose you know half days off and do longer days than others instead of saying it has to be five eight hour days each time so shout out to them for trying but yes in her case she should just take the pto. Yes i feel like. They're trying to make some fridays but in like a bed in like a over overwrought way. Yeah but yes. I guess you're right. They get a little credit because they do nothing they could do. But they're trying so love of the week so readers. My blog will. No i went on a shorts rampage slash tangent. Trying to decide. If i can still wear mike dunham cutoffs and i decided and my readers validated that especially in the land of south florida and probably in some other regions. Why the hell nuts. Somebody wrote. I think the cutoff age is late sixties. So i have plenty of time. And i ordered the eagled loose fit denim shorts that i read about on. I don't even know anymore. Some fashion blog of star. That i don't remember which and they're great. I really like if i were mama vacations and i am wearing them with my like birkenstocks that i bought that are basically the same shoes ahead in the mid nineties and so i feel like my outfit is something i probably would have worn as a teen. I don't it's fine. I'm fine and the nineties are back in the nineties iraq who live through them. The first time will celebrate them again. Yeah i have not been so successful on finding shorts that i like i just do not like the way i look in short so maybe i should just admit this in wear skirts or jeans for the summer but i keep trying to hot yet. Another guy and skirts would probably be good. But you know you can't really wear skirts to an amusement park. And so then it's like that kind of activity. I dunno escort. You were an lettuce escort. Now might be really cute. Maybe i don't know i long topic. Why never like boy. Shorts look on. May but i tried to ordering salmon i. They've come in the mail and really reminded me that. I really need to go to stores to try on shorts. This is going to have to return everything. Well this is a good point to shoutout lanny lender and her company. She said her business is booming. Right now so that's i'm not saying necessarily use her as a consultant. That sounds like she's got lots of people working with her but she said she's going to have a blog post very soon about shorts alternatives. Maybe that'll be a good thing to look at us. Probably what. I should be doing well so my love of the week then. I'll do something. That is closed as well but is not really summary american giant so i heard about american giant on the frugal blog with people. Wanna go check out. the girl. Kristen writes about all her money saving hacks cheerfully living unless you know the thing is. She's very frugal as one would be with the name. Frugal girl and i went and looked at these hoodies. And they're one hundred and eighteen dollars. I'm like So if the frugal girl is willing to pay one hundred dollars for a hoodie it must be really good and you know what they are really good. They're they're.

"You're not going to scream. Think about what needs to be done and make a plan and that kind of attitude is so valuable in any workplace. You know if you know how to get along and get things done. I think that's incredibly valuable. Said no that you bring that because that's an incredible gift that you can bring to the workplace. That's so funny. I'm just thinking about how my most chaotic call day is still like much. Calmer than one. Solo parenting weekend like totally. My husband used to laugh at me because when the kids were really little i worked in the pediatric. Er he said it's a picture of how stressful parenting small children is that you are going to an urban emergency department to continue working with children. Because that's like your restful day. Boxing day emerging. You know at least those emergencies their staff with no one's calling me mommy. That's amazing while you have listened to the best of both worlds. You know we like to get our love of the week from our guests. And i'm going to be unoriginal. 'cause i'm kind of like looking at what's on my desk right now and i don't feel like i've given okay. This is going to be a dual of the week. Do first of all these are tombo play colored dot pens and i don't like the part at all actually it's very spongy and i can never make the dot straight. So that part's not a love but they have a fine tip on the other end. That is like my new favorite fine tip pen like they're super. I don't know like precise. And i liked him better than the better than the stettler fine better than the flares and. This is dual of the week. Because i order them from a small online shop held press dot. Nc which is based near my sister actually north carolina and they sell japanese and korean basically all different asian stationery products and With kind of a little bit of a southern she's little southern vibe going north carolina and just a great online shops. You should check it out. But you should order these pens. If you find things. But i don't know if someone can master the the dot i. I feel like the dot for those bullet colors. Yeah i mean. I do that kind of planning but i can't i just i don't i don't have the skill can't get it to you like even and it also has a lot of bleed. I'm very picky. That's all right okay. My levels week. I've been actually planning for this. 'cause i know you always ask so my level. The week are the books called one hundred one things to do on a rainy day. There's also one called one hundred one things to do. Outside an author is done. isaac. I s. a. c. my daughter my eight year old daughter found them early dern covid because she was reading the ramona books and this is always reading some two hundred two things to do and so she said mommy said a real book so added. No let's look so. We found this book the library of loved so much and it's been such a great thing during home it. My daughter will flip through on her own and get ideas. And then we've done a bunch of the activities and she's excited to do a bunch more the summer while that sounds so perfect for my nine year old that i am going to immediately after this. Go to my library hold Servants have fun doing it. I will well. This has been such a pleasure. I one of my favorite interviews. Honestly so i really am going to suggest my residents check it out. I don't know that they they know. I have a podcast. But that's okay. I guess we'll know now. So thank you still out there. We miss it was wonderful and tell our listeners where they can find you if there are any avenues. You know what you really. Can't i mean other unless you read the academic allergy literature which case i published under some of them do not or you can find my husband. Because he's a pastor and he's written some books akseli jamie dunlop and he's written a book about church budgets and church community so awesome. Thank you so much. Have a wonderful rest of your day. thank you. That was great. Thanks for that interview. Sarah so instead of doing a normal question answer today we wanted to actually share a follow up from somebody who had sent in a question to us at previously. This listener had asked for a work from home arrangement back in the stone ages of work from home which was twenty nineteen and had been told. No no that will never work for us. Our organization can't possibly work remotely fast forward of course and twenty twenty her organization like every other one of this sort of did have to go remote. They did not fall. Apart turned out that they could work remotely anyway. She wrote back. Did you wanna do you wanna share. What she she wrote to us. Yeah and this is all nice and anonymous. Don't have company name to read it pretty much. And by the way when you send us feedback about our you know our responses. It is so much fun so if we ever answer your question please let us know if the advice worked or not or anything like that all right. So she writes. Hi laura and sarah. I was thinking about our email exchange from two thousand nineteen wanted to give you an update. You ask answer my question about an employer who was restrictive on work from home on your podcast back then. Obviously with cova. The work from home world has changed for march twenty twenty two april twenty twenty one. The same employer did an about-face fulltime work from home when they go back to the office hybrid work from home will be available with two days from home three days in the office but i learned that i love working from home so much that i've found another job in my industry and a huge career upgrade at that as of last month i took a fulltime remote position as a consultant with headquarters in several hours from home. This person will go to headquarters when necessary a few times a year but otherwise we'll be in her home office. The job also came with wait for it. A thirty percent pay increase. Its own version of the best of both worlds. She writes the world is changing and all the better for working moms. Thank you both for the content. You produce. It's a lifeline for moms like me made us so that made us very happy and i love followups like this and i also want to say that. Hello original company blake. You could probably kept her if you'd let her work from home full time and gave her a raise. But you know since that didn't happen. I'm glad that she found another organization that was willing to make the appropriate steps to lure her over there. And i give her the job. She wanted at a pay rate. That was good for her. So congrats to our listener. And i also just want to call attention to this because often we think about jobs in terms of trade offs like. Oh if. I want flexibility. I'm going to have to give up. Acts like i won't be able to find a job that i love is flexible and pays a lot like i'll have to give up one of those things like okay. Maybe but the thing is careers and jobs aren't like money where every dollar is exactly the same as every other dollar. There's there's a certain efficiency in markets that there isn't in the job market because people aren't like that right so when you are looking for a job you found one that was available around where you were. You know at the time you were looking with an organization that you knew about now any of those things limiting it in a way that if you had all the information available wouldn't have been the case and so what that means is that most people have not absolutely optimized in terms of their jobs so many more simple terms. Like if you don't like your current job it is always possible that you will like a better paying one better like is high. Figured have to trade off one of those things necessarily so. Make sure that you aren't just settling because you assume you will have to. Trade off cast a broader net. Keep looking network a lot. The odds are good that you haven't optimized on one dimension which means that it's possible you'll be able to go up on multiple dimensions with your next move. Love that wonderful advice all right. Well this has been best of both worlds. Sarah interviewed dr. John dunlap about her career. We will be back next week with more on making work in life fit together. Thanks for listening. You can find me. Sarah at the shoebox dot com or at the underscores shoebox on instagram..

"Tell we move. But now i don't know even just like i think a day like a weekend day where i didn't have responsibilities for everyone would be helpful. I think you can make it happen right all right. Let's hear what gender has to say. I am so excited to welcome here. Doctor joan dunlap who is at hopkins and we had multiple requests for people who had a little bit unusual career trajectories or some time out of work and we thought she would be perfect to have this discussion. Joan can you go ahead and introduce yourself. Yeah thanks for having me. Sarah mining miss joan dumb up. I'm a pediatric allergist. At johns hopkins. That's what i do for work. But the other parts of who i am. I'm mom to three kids age. Thirteen twelve and eight. And i'm married to a pastor which is probably unusual for the listenership of this podcast. He's a associate pastor at a southern baptist church here in washington. Dc wow that. isn't you. Know what cool combination. I love that well. I am not going to talk much. I want you to tell our listeners. The story of your somewhat unusual career trajectory through medicine. And i guess i will give the background that for most people. You can't go to med school a lot of times. You're fresh out of college. So you're you know what twenty two years old when you start med school then you start your fellowship at around twenty six. Maybe you're done your residency at twenty six in the. Maybe you're done with that at twenty nine thirty and maybe do a fellowship and then you're all done that's kinda like but some notice that that does interfere directly with the most common and healthy childbearing year absolutely and so there may be other pets so i will let you go ahead. How it was for you and quite different. Yeah great thanks sarah. So as sarah mentioned medicine. Academic medicine in particular is usually kind of it's presented as a really linear path and one of the reasons. I told sarah laura that was interested in coming on the podcast. Because i'm really a big proponent of people making their own path and doing what works best for them and for their family. So i did a pretty typical thing as sarah described went to college and then went on to medical school in medical school actually started hopping off the path. A little bit the dip. My toe in the water. I took a year off in the middle of medical school. I got married in the middle of my third year of medical school and took a year off to just try to see if continuing in medicine. What's going to work for my husband. And i and our relationship and our career trajectories and what we wanted to do with our lives. The short story from that was decided. Yes absolutely bringing finish medical school. In then i was a pediatric resonant. Here at johns hopkins started in two thousand and four. that's also presented often as a straight shot career paths. Oh you need to do your residency and then you need to decide right away what you wanna do the rest of your life. Do you want to specialize. Do you want to be a generalist. And i s era mentioned. You really finish residency around twenty nine. Which is kind of prime childbearing years. And i decided that i was going to hop off and that was a huge like just a watershed moment in my life of deciding that even though i could go on i was going to prioritize having children and so i was going to take a job out of residency that will allow me to flex up or flex down for the needs my family so i took a job at children's national medical center which is a hospital here in dc working their emergency department. And i worked part time. I flex it up flushed it down that you're my first child and then a couple of years later have my second and then my second son had significant medical needs so sarah and i could get all nerdy about it but we'll try to keep it non-medical and his future just wasn't totally sure. We've just didn't know what was going to be next for him. So i made the decision. Basically he had a lot of therapies and appointments. And i want it to be there for those so i made the decision to pull way back with my work schedule and then eventually actually decided that. I needed to step out altogether. That was incredibly difficult. I think a lot of us put a lot of our identity in what we do for work and i think as doctors were guilty of being extra identified closely identified with our work and so it was a huge deal for me to decide that it wasn't the right time for my family for me to be in the workforce so i left completely and in this i just see i mean god just totally opened a door for me because it was so kind so as home completely. My son had a bunch of surgeries. Had a bunch of a. You know a lots of weekly or biweekly therapy. And then children's decided to open a satellite emergency department for poor neighborhood here in dc which is awesome because that was the neighborhood that really wasn't getting high hyperbolic care but now they have to staff to emergency departments twenty four seven and they really. They were hiring a lot of new staff but at some point they said we really want staff we know staff we already have confidence in trust and so they reached out to me and said hey you know what we really need someone we would really like basically you to come back and i said what got you know you know. I left because my son's medical meets said well we'll take whatever hours you can give us. What can you give us an. I just decided to ask big. So i said i could do weekday daytime shift which acerra knows like hot commodity right. If you're working your staffing at unit twenty four seven to ask i d. I wanted the same weekday every week for baby-sitter and it's like impossible to get when you're so junior and they said sure. Do you want to stay wednesday or thursday fantastic so then. I ended up working that thursday day. Shift gig basically for many years. So i did that for several years until i saw my second son did much better started in a regular school. We had a daughter third child at around that time and so when all the kids were starting back in. I should back all the kids. Were either in school getting ready to start school and my husband and i were looking ahead. Okay now we have a little bit more bandwith. I've been doing this very part time job. For at that point i had been out of residency for like six six or seven years. Which is unusual typically. Your path is set by them. And they said i would like to go back and do more what can i do. What should i do. What do i want you to. And so there are a lot of options out there. You know with my. It's not like. I was uneducated so with my pediatric certification. I certainly could go join a general pediatrics practice. I could continue working emergency department. But the part of the story. I didn't tell was in interim both of my boys. My older boys have been diagnosed with food allergies and i realized that as a pediatrician. I actually had not gotten a ton of education and food allergies. When i was a resident wasn't exposed a lot. It's very much an outpatient kind of disease and so we didn't see a ton of it his residence and i didn't have any personal interest and long story short. A bunch of things work together and been working with an asthma initiative based in our emergency department. So that's also in the allergy field. I said you know what i am. Constantly reading about food allergy for my children. I think i can do this. I think i would like to contribute to figuring out why we have food allergies. And why there's more them and to work on therapies. So with that motivation mind. I applied for it after fellowship training so this point people are getting an application. It's a woman's seven or eight years out of residency so older than the typical candidate and atypical career path. I had stayed in. So i you know other than those six months when my second son had a lot of medical needs. I had always done something so. I can't say that i left completely for an extended length of time but i didn't really scale down so i was really thankful. Hopkins was a resident there so they basically were happy to take a risk of you. So i came back to fellowship training but i don't know anyway. I turned forty as a as a fellow. So i think it's the first your fellow. My kids were all in school. And i got a master's in epidemiology while i was a fellow as well the three or fellowship and then stayed on on the faculty so that's kind of where how got to wear i am now. And that's that's where i am today so i. I work fulltime at hopkins as pediatric allergy faculty member and i teach fellows and medical students and residents semisi patients. When i do a lot of.

This was a fun episode. People enjoyed oh. I guess we hadn't into level. We have the love of the week do we. Let's let's hope we have one So go ahead. Yeah say something. Specific i do like family meals and i know that family meals as sort of a tough topic for many people. Because it's that thing you're supposed to do and if it doesn't work for some reason in your family. It's a sign of i dunno. Everyone's going to be delinquent result. And that's just ridiculous because that's not at all with the research shows but you know it is kinda fun when we can all sit around the table at the same time and even see little henry sitting there in his highchair leaning in being part of it and it's fun to have all of us sitting there talking about stuff it never lasts long because somebody's up from their chair immediately and you know somebody's screaming about something but in the seconds of contentment but happen. I enjoy that. I will say i just love. The my kids are still at the age where they want to do stuff with my husband. And i hope that stays forever. Maybe we'll be lucky like annabel.

"Chicken or pre veggies or something that you can easily assemble a dinner later and so i thought that that was a better take on the concept and probably makes better food too. She's got some great cookbooks. Good recipes so go check her out yes. She was one of my favorite food guests as well. She was great all right. Should we talk about what we learned from each other. Yes uh-huh about what we learn from each other. I mean honestly. My list could be very very long but it doesn't matter should be sure my shortlist of things that i have learned from laura over the past two hundred episodes or so just to let go of a lot of guilt and judgement and ask myself. If i'm going down guilty road like joy need to be what was laura say. I mean. there's definitely questioning the narrative and switching the genders. Around if something kind of seems gender-based then tell the story backwards and it will often reveal the truth. My husband actually really likes this one. I think it's eye-opening to him. Sometimes something will sound normal at like you know. Dad works very hard and his away from his children for fifty hours. If the mom did that like would you feel the same kind of okay about it like maybe what. I'm not saying. No but some has flipping helps us to view my week and one hundred sixty eight hours. Of course not every day has to be balanced. There's a lot of time in those one hundred and sixty hours and finally what we talked about recently which is like don't let one bad day necessarily spiral into a story that changes everything because it doesn't necessarily have to. Yeah well that's good. I'm glad you got that. Sometimes i need to remind myself of those things. I think one thing. I got from sarah that is surprisingly practical and useful. It's the weekend email. So i had heard on her blogger. She'd mentioned it here. But that sarah's sends her and josh copying yourself so you can have a record of two but the cruise director email about the weekend plan and as our weekends became more and more complex. I realized it was good to do that. It forced me to think through it as well. Because then i start to see like. Oh yeah we have this time available. This town is not available or were gonna need to figure something out here because we have to be three different places. There are two of us so every thursday. I tend to send michael an email. I often put a question in there to check that it is being read now. I will say he does read it because he has learned that they're excellent question. If if the question is responded to there will be like is it. Okay if i throw out your fever. Ten t shirts. Okay thanks something. He would have liked to answer. Assume yes if no response you know. I have not sent the weekend emails since kobe probably should start to get. It's really it's very useful. I wasn't i wasn't sitting at during covert and then when it's like i knew things were kicking back up when i'm gonna go. I should start sending their email again. But you know it's been good. It's how we can make sure we both have some time to do things how we get to everyone's events so that was a hundred percent copied from sarah and then i mean the fact that there is a whole world of planners out there but i did not know about and it's just broadening my life in all sorts of ways as i listened to best laid plans every week been listening to i was listening. We're recording this on monday. And i was listening to it in the car this morning. I was dropping children off at school. So i've been learning about the cool pens all the different options i can have this week. It was about if i wanted a more masculine style planner. Oh you're super uptodate. All of them. Of course this morning doing press. And so if you've ever do me the honor of allowing me to buy a planner if we could discuss what you would like in. I would be very excited. Okay and even have various credit so i could do it in an easy manner easy. Oh yeah i'm all about that. I'm almost done with my current notebook from target. Because we don't wanna waste that i'm excited. Okay we'll have to discuss this off. I'm serious okay. All right we'll see a few know enough of my planning method or non method as the case may be that you cannot do that so yeah and i also just. I mean so appreciate from sarah that she still authentic on her blog. Like and you guys see that those of you who read her blog like all that she's willing to share. I am probably not as brave as she is so learning that from from sarah and just made it's been so fun to watch how your career has grown. I mean your share ability to craft your career with multiple different aspects of the things. You're interested in as i mean. Take away what. What can i do differently. What i what should i try It's very inspirational. Thank you. I think you have a pretty cool career so i don't think you need a mess with that too much but now i've been lucky and i'm also lucky that my readers are generally really really nice. They're also. I don't think i could be as open and or reckless as i. Sometimes let's call it open not reckless. Yes all right. So let's do our love of the week which is best of both worlds. Of course two hundred episodes in if you enjoy us please leave a rating or review. If you don't like us maybe just don't like us silently as we talked about earlier. That's fine if you're still lifting listening. After two hundred episodes maybe his stumbled on the two hundred episodes. Who on earth are these people. That's fine but if you like us please leave a rating or a review all right so we have a question from a listener whose this was an audio one The same pipe if you over to sarah's blog and click on best laid plans.

"Did you. You offer your nannies a raise. When a second kid came into the picture yes and no i see yes because at least <unk>. Especially back then when our second kid came into the picture fairly soon after her nanny had started with us. I was pregnant with him when she came so she kinda knew she was signing for kids. We did yearly raises in those days. And when i say because at some point we hit kind of a little bit of a ceiling where we just started adding other things like increased bonuses and increase vacation time at cetera. I wouldn't say we added specifically because of the second kid but we did increase <hes>. Compensation anyway and i will say that you know just like for a parent sometimes. It's helpful for a caregiver to have the toddler out of the house for part of it so they can focus on the other kid especially if they're going to be doing some housework duties as well so back then. When annabelle was three in cameron was one that was probably one of the hardest parts of her job. Say harder than it is now especially because for the most part all three go to school for a significant portion of the day. But i had alan in preschool at age three even if it was just for four or five hours that really broke up the de for time that she would just have with a newborn time in part. When that new warriner one-year-old even would be napping so just took the load off a little bit so sometimes it doesn't you know it's not an either or plus particularly in non cova times preschools had have benefits to something to consider. That might make things easier for your caregiver. If you're adding more than one can. Yeah i mean. I would say like in general with any. I mean you employ in your work worker at home as well. i mean. anytime someone's job responsibilities increase substantially than than raise would probably be appropriate in our case we had always <unk>. wound up in a cycle. We are hiring new people. Like as i was pregnant with the next baby so it was like. Yeah i like you the they were signing on in negotiating with that in mind knowing the number of children that would be involved in the job and then currently we actually are any wanted to trim hours a little bit over the past year. And that's that's been fine. Because michael and i are both working at home right now. I'm not travelling anywhere. And so and we'll we'll see how that all pans out when when the pandemic is over people travel again but but for now it's it's been okay

So the unspoken point is that his clarity Zukas matters more because he brings in a larger share of the household income. But the reality is at fifteen years microfiche. My income is not inconsequential, either most importantly, she likes. Her job wants to continue to grow and move into school leadership which sometimes feels like impossible goal will sleep deprived. They've also been discussing having another kid on which is that sessions on the table. But she feels it would be a hit to our career to have another year or two working on low levels asleep. So she says unsure uneven split of sleep motivates many women to opt out of their career some guessing your answers with resonate with many of your audience any advice would be appreciated. Well, so Sarah. Yeah. Great question. And I think you know, there are some nuances depending on the child's age in everything. But I do think Laura, and I are pretty much in the same page. I will tell you. I mean, I don't you didn't mention. Exactly how old your child is now on I don't know if you're still nursing 'cause obviously that can change things a little bit. When I was doing that. I did a lot of the night duty. But once I was done with it. Or if there were upper -tunities where she was up on a new she didn't need to eat than it was a much more even foot if not slightly skewed to my husband because I was doing so much more during those nursing periods. I firmly feel that this is the responsibility of both parents are taking really if you both work, but even if only one person is working in a traditional job because of somebody else's caring for kids all day unless unless it's just like one baby naps in you can nap. I mean, really it's gonna make you crazy if you could never have a reasonable night of sleep. And there's got to be away that it thinks can be shared. So that you can have some compromise. But that you both can remain functional. I mean for my residency experience, I gotta say like you can have like two two or three terrible night's sleep in a week in kind of being okay human being, but you can't have six to seven. So there's two parents. And therefore, I think this needs to be like logistically figured out. So that you both can share some of this responsibility. Whether that's alternating nights, or maybe one of you does kind of like one of you, go sped early. So that the other one would deal with any cups from like nine PM to one AM, and then the other one deals with kinda like the early morning wake up. So then that second person sleeps in so kind of slowing the night that way like I don't know that there's one right way. But something and and I think I'll let you talking to second.

"Learned a lot about sort of how whole milk production thing works as I went along over time to like for some reason, I was trying to get an extra sessions and like try to pump for that resource apply at night like at the end of the day after the babies went to bed with my first child. And then the second baby I'm like, oh, right. You're supply in morning should pump extra in morning. And then I didn't even pump just fed baby on one side and the other one into a bottle on the other while he was eating. There was an mixed remodel a Melker whenever so that's amazing. But it's so funny. 'cause like also I think it's such a like there's so many individual differences physiologically about how it works for different people. Like what you just like that would never worked for me. Like, I can't even imagine. Like nothing would have come out. But. But then it's just so easy to be like, well, obviously, you know. So I just the individual needs to be emphasized. Yes. And what you talked about that permissiveness of like, you can nurture your baby in many different ways. There's no one. Yeah. An answer can be a great Asians in this to like, I believe I mean, you're still breastfeeding your baby if you're breastfeeding in the morning at night, maybe you're pumping once a day during the we're not pumping all that you would need to supply the baby, but you're pumping som-. Like, I mean, that's that can be fine to like, I mean, you know, I a baby who is getting one formula bottle in for nursing sessions a day still breastfed baby, you know, like, it's. There's no you don't get at all. I don't know. I mean, I maybe somebody else's that's sort of online fragging forum where you can talk about. I would personally say away from that for I'm if I were you. I'm just taking out. So there's lots of great as sends than as you can you can nurse even if you're not nursing exclusively. You can, you know, introduce bottles at some point if it helps, you know, there's lots of ways to think about this and that can make life a lot less stressful as well for the record of sixty six percent of my baby's got multi Joel. Yes. Six percents. Great. And everyone's okay, everyone is exactly the same as so. Anyway. Away from pumping. You had another question, Laura. I think about like a what about longer maternity leaves? How do I wondered if anything changed based in your advice based on sort of how long the person has been out for? I mean, I would assume the majority are right around that kind of like twelve we returning that seems to be pretty US standard. But then there's was I know the legal world, we're certainly seeing a number of firms sort of expanding that's more like in the six month range, you know, and some tech companies as well. So I wondered if there are differences for for different links of time that you've been out or somebody maybe took a year off if there's other things that you thinking about. Yeah. That's a great question and people take the mind for return program from all over the world to so I've had plenty of people from Australia and UK where it's much in Canada where it's really I'm standard to take a much longer period of time off. I think what surprised me most. Or what has the price me? Most over the couple of years of teaching this courses universality of the worries like e. You know, it may very well be that your kid can walk and might not need a bottle anymore. But you're still worried about leaving your child with someone you don't necessarily know even though you've added them, and it worried about reintegrating into some of your projects. There was a really interesting Harvard Business Review article about that longer leave a couple I think it was in September. And how you know a longer leave can be more challenging career perspective to come back from right because you've been gone longer and the world the work quarrel might have changed a little bit more. My course it self. It really doesn't vary depending on your length of leave. And I think as I said the concern seemed to be universal..

"It can really be helpful to reach out to some of your colleagues a few weeks before the end of leave and remind them that you're coming back and ask what projects you can start to dig in on whenever you do return. So that you can start to be billable from the time. You you come back. I've also talked to some moms who didn't line up work, or for whatever reason were sitting at their office with not a whole lot going on this first few weeks, and they found that more infuriating because it could have been with their baby right there. I'm sitting here at my dad's not doing anything I'd prefer to actually be productive. So I think, you know, having that communication plan is really is really helpful. I think another mistake that I made. And I see a lot of them in. My course Minic again. I don't know if it's a mental if it's a mistake so much as sort of a. Mental bias. But we assume that our kids are somehow gonna forget us or thinks that we're somehow less of apparent because we're trying to go back to work, and the one thing that I say to the moms in the courses. There's no one like, mommy. There's never going to be anyone like mommy that kid is going to run screaming into your arms at the end of the day. And that smile is going to make you so happy, and I think a lot of the moms thing, but somehow by being gone for our many hours during the days that they're just gonna forget them. I think that's a serious error in when we need to work on correcting just for our own sanity. Awesome. Yeah. So at a high personally found by far the most challenging part of my return to work related to the pumping. Like if that wasn't anytime don't even think I'd have any issue. But that was like a huge painful experience for me for nine months in somehow. I did it anyway. So I would love to hear your thoughts on that the choice to do it versus not any tips. Any I don't know you now have a lot of experience talking to many women about this. I'm sure so I'd love to hear your insights. Yes. So the pumping thing I did it until each son was about thirteen months old. So there were I don't know one time I sat down and calculated like a thousand pump sessions or something. So there was a lot of fun going on in planes trains automobiles my desk. I think one thing that was the most helpful to me was to block my pump times on the calendar for a full year in advance. And I know it's not always possible depending on where. What type of cetera by it was helpful to me during mine leave to walk those times. So that no one else would steal them from because it's much easier to lock it out to try to steal it back from someone later. It helped me to realize that each child was really different as well. Like with my first child I had to pump three times a day. I pumped like nine thirty to ten while they're you one three to four or something like that. To keep my supply up, and I was sort of eking out every ounce, and I know stress reduces your supply and that probably contributed to it. But with maybe number two, whoa. I did not really need third session. I was reducing Melk lake. Nobody's business and I had to on sessions during the day one in the morning when the afternoon, but I didn't take that third session off my calendar..

"But before we close to give our I love of the week for twenty nineteen. What is your love of the week where she got to look at my list. Now, we're gonna put my list. We're probably watching tons of this right now. So one of the things I've got for my kids for Christmas is popular mechanics for kids the DVD's for a season three and four. So we've long had the DVD's for season. One two we got them before. One of our epic Indiana drives in the minivan driving from Pennsylvania to Indiana at its it's what is something that all four of them are willing to watch. It's it's not so popular mechanics of kids. That's hard because you have quite the Spanish agents has a watch and see like, you know, they they studied how aquariums worker how rockets worker how you know, like stunt cars in movies were or something like that it so episodes that are different, and it's kind of funny, and it's led by kids were like eleven twelve years old, right? Are the hosts of it. So in relatable in that sense. And so yeah, we had season one into the DVD's. We're getting scratched repeat 'cause shockingly minivan wear is a hard on movies. But so I bought. Three and four which the kids got for Christmas. And we're probably enjoying that. Now. So cool we own no DVD's. Streaming. Then the cloud. It's all. We don't watch. The physical media. We just like to be able to pull it up from Amazon or like, we although we didn't we have our movies on I tunes half of them on Amazon and like random ones are on Netflix. So it's not like not do. Maybe we have an older car is that we'll know when we don't have a thing in the car like if we're going on a long trip, we just give him I patch. And they don't do like don't have a thing. Yeah. Josh was really against that for some unknown reason. But I mean, we give them my pets. Get the time on it. Because it's sometimes it's total misery, right?

But when is being trip, and they're quiet. We could have adult conversation on the front seat. But that's funny when you said DVD's 'cause I was actually in target, and I was like who buys is.
