Jeanine and I are about to embark on a new phase of our lives together, namely that of parents of a school-age child. How did we get to be this old already?
So now that our oldest is starting school, Jeanine has started a full-time out-of-home job, which means our youngest will be cared for by total strangers in a large, germ-filled and noisy childcare center. Just kidding, Iâ€™m sure it will be fun for the little guy, because heâ€™s pretty social. Anyway, the point Iâ€™m making is that the daycare center is in the opposite direction from where I work, and to get there we have to go through a few busy intersections, and one in particular, by the high school, is going to take several lights to get through, Iâ€™m sure. So on the days when Iâ€™ll be dropping the boy off, Iâ€™ll have to leave for work a good half-hour earlier than I would otherwise.
So my question about this daycare dropoff schedule is will I ever be able to ride my bike to work again?!
