Well, I never thought I'd see the day that I would be the proud new owner of a........
.............Minivan, yes a MINIVAN! It is true.
I just never thought it would happen. I had so many reason why it wouldn't. But now those reasons just don't matter.
SO.....................If you think I look like some 30-year-old, Mom's Club-going, mother of three.....that's OK, because I AM.
If you think I must be one of those people who care more about convenience and comfort, than I do style.......that's OK, because in this case I AM.
If you think I have become someone who is more excited about double-power sliding doors than I am about anyone thinking I have a "cool car".......that's OK, because I AM
If you think I am tired of driving around with a HUGE double stroller as my front passenger, because there is no room for it in the back.......you're right, I AM.
If you think I am tired of lifting three children up into my huge, tall vehicle, into car seats numerous times a day.....right again, I AM.
If you think I could be a famous contortionist with some of the positions I have been in getting my children into or out of their car seats, and getting to them without having to get out of the car........that's so true, I COULD BE.
And, if you think I am eating my words right now about "never driving a mini-van",........that's OK, because, I AM.
I realize I have definitely reached a new era in my life, being a "mini-van driver". And while you won't catch me in "Mom jeans" or with a bumper sticker that says "Honk if you love your mini-van" any time soon, I am OK with this new era of my life. I have come to terms with it.
**In case you're wondering it is a Nissan Quest- SOOO the coolest of the minivans! Ha!..........
