[ - ] I am on a "beach vacation" with dh and three kids. What a disaster. I can't take another minute. The baby keeps eating the sand, hasn't drank a bottle or anything else in 2 days, the older keep fighting about the sand toys, dh actually hates the beach, is sitting in his chair, brushing off any sand that touches him, and I have read the same paragraph on my book 30 times because I can't ever have a minute to read. I also have a finance job, and I f hate these markets. I would pay any amount of money for someone to watch my kids, so I could sit on the beach, but no one would. Help. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not joking. Cut it short and go home early. I did that once when I was sitting on a beach having no fun while worrying about my sick child. Such a relief to get home. I did wonder if it ruined my ability to enjoy future beach trips, but it didn't. We tried again last year and had a great time. Sometimes the stars aren't aligned and sometimes they are.

[ - ] Posted this late last night but re-trying for daytime crowd. Moving to NY from CA with husband and 16 month old. We would like to stay around $5k for rent. We have a car but may or may not keep it long-term. We've been thinking of Roosevelt Island and LIC to get more space and possibly less density (16 mo is very active and I'd love to have outdoor space easily available). Are these neighborhoods good for young families? Also, I consult part time from home so I will be spending a lot of time wherever we are. DH will be working in Midtown. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
