10 Suburban Things You Desperately Miss When Raising Kids In The City
When I was living in New York with a small child, there were things about my suburban upbringing that I started to miss so much; things I never thought twice about when I had them. There are certain things that make a parent’s life so much easier, that you don’t really appreciate until you don’t have them anymore.
1. A hallway.

2. A garage.
Nothing like having nowhere to store the baby clothes and toys you’re not sure if you are going to need again.
3. A trunk.

4. A supermarket that has those shopping carts for kids that look like race cars.Â
Two kids. One shopping cart. Those things exist in suburbia.
5. A car.
You mean I can schlep all of these groceries home without losing feeling in my fingers?
