timing is everything

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, I’m sure it will be fun for the little guy, because he’s pretty social. Anyway, the point I’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, I’m sure. So on the days when I’ll be dropping the boy off, I’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?!

    Family commitments may be the number one reason I don’t ride to work more often. Day care, school functions, visiting friends, band practice – they all require a car for me to ferry #1 or #2 around.
