I am gonna be REAL honest with you. When I had a third child, I had to stuff 3 car seats in the back of a sedan and let’s just say I pinched my delicate fingers a few too many times! We were saving money for a minivan because I HATED shoving three car seats in the back seat, AND because I was dying for a power door. Seriously, when your hands are full of a baby carrier, power doors are the STUFF OF DREAMS.
So here’s the honest part. When my youngest was 4 months old, we spent every penny we had to pay cash for a 6-year-old minivan and it was the BEST money we’ve ever spent. I LOVE cruising around in my swagger wagon! Now it’s 12 years old and it STILL rocks my world! Power doors, leather seats, DVD player—oh yeah—it’s the finest technology one could get in 2004.
I love this parody from The Texting Yoga Pants where “this is how we do it” becomes “never thought I’d do it”—but for me, hooking myself up with a minivan was a NO brainer! I pity parents of three or more who haven’t made the leap! Enjoy these funny minivan mamas, and enjoy having a new tune to sing while you cruise in your swagger wagon!
