Today, I have a question for you…
My dilemma involves Michael’s commute to preschool which begins tomorrow. My family lives in Harlem (in the 140s). Michael’s preschool is in midtown (the 40s). That’s almost a 100 block difference. By subway train, the commute is 45 minutes to an hour each way.
-If I come back home after dropping him off, my daily commute will be 3 to 4 hours. (Note that Michael’s class is only 2 and ½ hours – the irony isn’t lost on me. Obviously, I REALLY like this preschool or I would not be in this situation!)
-If I stay in the midtown area and wait around for the 2 and ½ hours, I have to figure out what to do with Sean. It just so happens that Michael’s preschool time coincides with Sean’s nap time. It’s not such an issue during the warmer/good weather days. I can walk Sean around/let him nap in the stroller (added bonus – natural workout!). The challenge is when it gets colder. So far, I have three thoughts:
1. Hang out at a local library
2. Hang out at the Time Warner Center
3. Hang out at a Starbucks (there has to be one nearby)
I do not really love any of those options though. What would you do??? Please leave your thoughts in the “Comments” section below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
