The Y hot tub isn't some place I go for quiet; our Y has it in the locker room. I can still hear kids in the dressing area.

I'm sure that "no kids under 13" has a lot more to do with liability than it does for relaxation.


what is Y?  or is that priviliged information?

By addressing the 2 year old at all, you were engaged in a power struggle as he saw it, and he was going to win.

Unless your daughter has asked for your help, I'd back off.  You don't like seeing the little one act like that but you ahve no control over it.  It's mom's call.

The YMCA.  (Not the song the Village People sing.  ;) ) It's a great family gym in the  Northeast. It's been great going there and having DD with me. I can't wait until she  gets older so we can do Mommy and Me Dance Lessons.

lol, my dad and stepmom just came back from a beach that they didn't realize going into was going to be nudity allowed.  They kept saying they weren't told anything about it!  Probably cause it's not a big deal over there.  They wouldn't tell me if they tried going nude on the beach lol.

They've made a huge comeback in the Northeast (they all were pretty run down). Now, they have huge facilities where the whole family can go. I'm glad they've turned around from what they were around the Northeast in the early 90s.

How do they obtain their funding?  It's not all private donations and membership fees, is it?

They get funding from the state, but the membership for us is still like $60/month. They also have a daycare that charges a ton of money.

So, private donations, membership fees, state funding and other usage charges. It's not cheap. But, DH needs a softball/soccer team, I need a treadmill and pilates and I just love taking DD for a swim on some of the winter nights in their heated pool.

And they are legally non-profit.


That just means that when it all comes down to it that their financial statements have $0 income. Not really that they aren't out to make money. Just that they have to "dispose" of the money.

They have no where to carry their money either lol.   Beaches, bathhouse, lakes and anything in between are all basically left to your disgression here in sweden.
