Re: going to be a 1 car family

We have the kids school right around the corner the daycare 2 streets away and I work within a 10 walk but still 1 car can be a pain. Like last week I had to work at 5am so I walked...in rain but ok. DS 1 and 2 walked to school and Dh drive the babies to daycare at 10 on his way to work. Problem DS3 had a doc appointment at 330 and DH has the car. No public trans here. Luckily my boss let DH pick me up so I could bring the van back after dorpping him off at work. And theres any night when DH works to 9 or 10 like last night. Most times he can get a ride home.
But loading up 4 kids at 10 am for a 10 minute drive then doing it an 1 1/2 hr later for me to go to work. Getting out at 7pm picking them up just to load back up an hr later to get DH is very stressfull for me.

Re: going to be a 1 car family

We also have one car. My husband works two days a week outside the house and needs the car to do sales calls those two days. The other three week days he works from home which is nice. It never seems to be a problem for us. The only *annyoing* time is when a friend wants to have a play date or I want to get out of the house. I am stuck home a lot but that just makes me want to go on long walks and get some exercise

Re: going to be a 1 car family

We are a one car family. My DH works about 8 miles round trip from the house. Everything is fairly local to us, so when we feel up to it, we will walk everywhere. We also bike a lot, now that places are starting to put back in bike racks.
