I love November. Usually it is the height of fall in the DC region and it also kicks off the start of the holiday season. I love seeing my family and spending time with them, and Thanksgiving is the first opportunity we’ve had in several months to do that. Additionally, this Thanksgiving was extra special because it was the first time many of my family members got to meet NFF Jr.
Financially, November was an ok month for us. Mrs. NFF is not back at work yet, and her limited maternity leave policy meant we went this month without any income from her. Maternity/Paternity policies in the US are truly f***ed up. We are fortunate that Mrs. NFF could take 3 months off work (half of it unpaid) and be ok, but I can’t image how the millions of other families in the US deal with it.
