Parenting in San Francisco can get a little ridiculous at times. Prices are out the roof, the city is crowded and right now people are making money auctioning off parking spots.
I hang with all types of parents in this city from the incredibly affluent to those on welfare. There are a lot of things that get said in those social circles and then there are things you will never hear.
Inspired by the post from The Bold Italic , here are the things you will almost never hear a parent from San Francisco say.
This preschool is so affordable!
Go outside and play, see you in a few hours.
I wish my kids had more diversity in their lives.
I love my huge SUV.
I would never pay $12 for a kid’s meal.

Living in San Francisco isn’t that financially challenging for families.
I love waiting in line for the grocery store parking lot.

I wish I had more opportunities to expose my kids to art.
Go ride your bike.
I love my lawn.
Sure! I’d be happy to give you my affordable babysitter’s number.
