New Jersey. Top public schools for children. Lots of resources here. Access to two the largest US cities. Lots of jobs. Shoreline in the summer. All seasons. Mix of many cultures so lots and lots of food options. Plenty of public transport and large highway system. If you want something less expensive try south jersey btw.

New Jersey is an excellent state. I wish I appreciated it more when I lived there. Took me some moves to realize it’s the 2nd most underappreciated state in the Midwest/north east (to PA)

Austin, TX. No state income tax and tech heavy with opportunities for local candidates.

Chicago you can enjoy the outdoors 3 months of the year.

Raleigh is great for families and no snow.

My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate). She also doesn’t get why we have a cleaner and dog walker and seems to imply we’re wasting our money by outsourcing funds on things we can do. She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.
