Driving a Mini-van?

The Mini-van. The Queen of all Mommy cars. Do you have one? Recently, I purchased my first mini-van. Honestly, I don’t mind being a soccer mom. In fact, my macho husband drives it even more than I do. I was concerned at first when we got rid of his old Jeep to get a mini-van. Was this equivalent to neutering a male dog? Besides, he already has to live with three girls with lots of pink and polish- now he has to give up his masculine car for a mini-van. Luckily, it wasn’t an issue. It didn’t hurt his male ego one bit. If I could choose my vehicle of choice, I would choose a VW bug! I’ve always loved those little cars.

Isn’t it great that with just one click on the internet, you can research the car of choice? Being a great tool for researching safety, price, etc., I’ve used these sites when searching for my new and used vehicles. One great site that my girls and I were exploring today is called They had fun exploring different types of cars and selecting their own car.
I showed them a few different vehicles and then got their opinion about each car. Peanut liked the Toyota Yaris because the model shown is “shiny and blue.” Great reason to buy a car. He, He. Sunshine on the other hand, chose a more expensive model, a Lincoln MKS. “Do they have it in a convertible? I want a convertible.” She better start saving now for this pricey car. On the other hand it did get a better rating than the Toyota Yaris. Lastly, I showed the girls information and photos of the Chevrolet Cruze. They both gave this model a thumbs down. It wasn’t “cool” enough for them. Car "window" shopping with them is too funny!

If you are in the market to buy a new car, be sure to check out or if you want to have fun dreaming like me with your curious kids, you can do that, too!

Take Care!

We have had a mini van for a while. I love the space in it, the ability to move around and have some room. I think I may be hitting my mid-life crisis though, I really want my two door BMW convertible:).

Nope, my husband just won't go there. We got an Expedition when it was time for us to have more room. We're both happy with it, but I'd love a minivan :)
