A few that I love:
*buttons on my door and key chain that open the doors and sunroof automatically
*Extra mirror up front to view EVERYONE in the back.
*pull down shades and tinted windows
*The ability for each of my kids to have their own personal space with plenty of storage.
I knew I was destined to be a minivan mom, but I held out for as long as I could, and honestly I don't know why. I'm still NEVER going to be one of those moms with the bumper sticker that says, "This is how I roll" or "You laugh at my minivan, and I laugh cause I passed you". And although I was tempted to get the family sticker for the back window (You know, the ones with a stick figure for each member in the family, including the dog, with their names below) I decided it was dangerous. I'm not sticker crazy, I'm crazy over protective. I'm not thrilled with the idea that any stranger can see my kid get out for school and then yell their name and wave.
Now for a little minivan humor with a few things I found on the internet...
Miss Thang was hoping for the convertible model:
The scientist was hoping for this one:
Let's just hope this isn't him in about 10 years!
And finally, Where there is a kid in need of a ride, When a soccer team is stranded, when ever a vacation must be taken and taken now.... I'll be there!
*The wind is keeping me from doing much in the backyard today, but I have a bit of cash and really want to cruise the strip in my new ride. AKA go to Sonic. You know I love those Javachillers, but I've heard the Moolatte at DQ is better. Dare I try it? Is it even sane to want to sample something MORE addictive than a chiller? Ooooh yeah...
