Party for 5

If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would be the Co Captain of a minivan, I would have laughed in your face. My husband, the Captain, would have probably laughed harder. NEVER would we drive one of those obnoxious cars that I constantly sped passed. Even if I had kids, I would drive a cute sporty SUV. HA!! My older self laughs in the face of my younger self. I had a cute sporty SUV, leather seats, sun roof, the whole nine yards. That was TWO kids ago!! I traded that in for a much more spacious means of transportation. Do you have any idea how convenient the sliding doors and captain's chairs are for THREE, yes THREE car seats. Not to mention all the space in the back for the double stroller, pack and play, and a trunk full of groceries. You'd be surprised at how much stuff you can fit into the back of a minivan. Leather seats?? Who needs them. After all, the purpose of a minivan is for practicality. Think of all the juice spills, crunched up cheerios, throw up (yes, my van has been puked in many times), why spend the extra money on such luxuries. So, cloth seats it was!

So, that's what I did...traded my old life (cute sporty SUV) for my new one (blue minivan). I wouldn't trade back for anything!!
