Well, it is officially. I am a minivan mama. I never thought that I would say those words…. I have always sworn that I would NEVER drive a minivan (see how saying “never” can bite you in butt?) and here I am, the proud new owner of a minivan.
I have been searching for a new car since November, and I have been unable to make up my mind on what I wanted. I had been going back and forth between an SUV and a minivan. I test drove a few of each – some were more memorable than others (see The MiniVan for a VERY memorable test drive!). I was also torn over what I wanted and needed. I knew we needed space, but I really wanted 4-wheel drive – I get very nervous driving in the snow. In the end, space won out, and you cannot beat the space of a van!
V was thrilled with our new car, and E seemed in awe of all the space he had. Both kids wiggled and kicked their legs, while laughing gleefully the whole way home from the dealership. Jay loved that I had finally made up my mind, and my mom was excited by the fact that when we went places she would no longer be squished in the front seat.
If I had any hesitation about new ride, Christy at Orange Hero Mama has changed my mind! She shared this video with me, and it has forever changed my view of minivans!
So, to make a long story short, I will be getting my swag on as I cart my kids around in my new minivan… I mean, my new swagger wagon! 😉
