I don’t know how people with kids manage without having family close by.  I mean, I’m sure you do but we have always had family close to help us with our kids and I can’t imagine not having that.  My kids never went to daycare or spent an evening with a babysitter that wasn’t a blood relative.

There might be an argument whether that is good or bad but it always put my mind at ease knowing who was taking care of them.  But we also paid the family members for watching them so we never felt like we were taking advantage of them.  It was a win-win.  We had the peace of mind of knowing someone was watching our kids who genuinely loved them but they were also getting extra income that helped them.




dude, that is GOLD

Ordinarily you are closest to the people you face challenges with. It's one reason we often have great childhood friends that we never see--because we endured teen angst together. The bestest of my best friends do not live nearby, so I truly value the opportunities to see them. But I have new friends I've met through my community here, who I also treasure. But those relationships take time, and--at least for me--aren't as deep as with my teen, college, and Army buddies.

And as noted above, it helps that SFIrish is a true friend. We've always enjoy hanging out together (we're spouses, so we still argue over who cleans the bathroom and why the kids haven't done their chores, but you know, life).

We're getting ready to move, and the house is nearing completion (likely May/June), but we're going to go out to Maine this summer.   My oldest really wants to do it, and I'm down with it.  Will likely parlay it with a game at Fenway, same as I did 23 years ago when I went to Maine the last time as a young adult

Gotta have a few sitters in the rotation.   The biggest key though was getting a verbal commitment for a summertime nanny at the end of last year.  That's such a relief, not to be scrambling.

Interestingly enough, the youngest son is getting married this summer (SUMMER DAMMIT!!!)Hey at least it wasn't football season

. Aside from the fat check I had to write, I'm happy for him and I like his choice (other than her parents have no money). Anyway, the fiancé already had a conversation with Mrs. 847 about having kids and babysitting and all that. Mrs. 847 subscribes to my philosophy on this. We are not babysitters. This is our time now. Sorry.Hope that isn't a harbinger of things to come.Suggesting directives isn't getting off on the right foot.But I'm sure you were tactful & kind in your smiting

I'm proud to say I've never fallen victim to even a sip of that stuff. I know better than to mix Tito's with anything but ice and lemon twist.

Awesome! I'm really itching to get out to Acadia and Katahdin.
