The other day DC experienced some serious winds and rains. Trees in the back alley were bending to and fro, all the while Tom praying that one land on top of my car. Why you ask? Because Tom is convinced we will be the proud owners of a mini van. The only thing that stands between me and the ultimate mom car is the current vehicle I drive.
Hear me say this, the mini van is practical, affordable, spacious, and wise. I think folks that dig mini's are super, and do not question their personal enjoyment or navigation of such an auto. However, I can not do it! I will give up driving all together (ah the bonus of city living) and do without before I grace the driver's seat of such a car that strips me of my cool factor(or the one i pretend to have). Now I have been more than amenable to Tom driving that phat ride around town and have access to it when we need to make the ten hour car ride to see grandparents. But wouldn't you know that does not seem to be a good "solution."
I will admit I am too Eco sensitive and cheap to go for the Tahoe or Suburban, not to mention the cost of gas would limit us to one tank every other month. So if you have a workable compromise to our predicament we are open to suggestions. This is not a fight in our house, but could be if pushed to test a towne and country. Please tell me you've seen the video of "mom my ride." I can see the mystery sippy cups growing underneath my seats as I type.
