    Where tf do you live to have such crazy commutes? Unacceptable for both people to have these. Optimize for one person.

    I recommend moving closer to work for at least one of you. But it is still hard

      Agree 100% - it's really hard to be rich and cheap - just remember you are in it for the long run - it's a marathon and not a Sprint - do the math on bringing a parent or two here, if they are not already here vs hiring a nanny

    Is moving closer an option? If not, au pair? Part time nanny?
