Yes, it finally happened. I became one of “those moms”. Helloooooo beautiful.
The truth is, I’ve been pining for a minivan for a while now. Okay, maybe pining isn’t strong enough. Lusting might be a more descriptive and accurate word.
It’s not that I didn’t love my little Corolla. I have loved that thing since I drove it off the lot 10 years ago. However, now we have two toddlers, a double stroller, diaper bag…it just wasn’t very comfortable anymore. It was hard to say goodbye, but it made it a little easier knowing we sold it to an awesome single mom with a little baby who had been praying for an affordable four day car for her family. Love that.
My kids are REALLY happy with the new minivan.
The Mini Athlete always asks to ride in the “big car” and he gets downright giddy when we use the automatic doors. It’s like magic!
Little Miss was pretty happy when she found she pit perfectly into the center console. Too bad I had to inform her that wasn’t exactly up to safety regulations…
In case you’re curious, we ended up with a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. I love when things fall into place and you just know you have found the right vehicle for you.
I like to call this “my” minivan, but in reality, this is all about the kids. And since my husband is the one that takes them to preschool and picks them up most days, he has informed me that he thinks that he will be driving this pretty new thing most days. Sigh. Can’t really complain about that though…he looks mighty good driving the “man van” as I’m affectionately calling it.
Does your family have a minivan, or are you “anti-minivan” like my sister-in-law is? :)
