With the comment, “we still may be too far away”, I completely agree!! How close is close enough? Especially with time and gas being big factors. For me it feels like under ten minutes, which is so hard to obtain! It also makes me wonder if the COVID driven “work from home” will help improve some of this dynamic? I guess if it holds.

I agree, 10 minutes seems about right. My oldest kid is only 2, but I feel like my idea is that we'd be close enough that she can go to her cousins' houses on her own in a couple of years. But yeah, that's so hard to get.

I have also wondered how the work from home trend during covid will impact this. Probably positively, though anecdotally I (unfortunately) don't know many people who took this opportunity to move immediately adjacent to their families. But I guess we'll see!
