In ten days, the twins will be 9 years old. About 9 years and a month ago, we ditched SoonToBeAGoodMom’s Cavalier and bought a 2002 Mazda MPV.
We drove all three of the kids home from the hospital in that sweet ride. We’ve driven the kids to emergency rooms, vacations, our for ice cream, to basketball practice. We’ve stopped in random parking lots to make kids sit on the naughty chair…more like naught concrete in those situations, I guess. We’ve stopped in random parking lots to clean up the kids throw up on the way home. Two of those times were different trips home from the Wisconsin Dells.
BeAGoodMom have used that car for anniversary trips, date nights, and for one of us to sneak out for ice cream after the kids go to bed.
So today, when we left the MPV in the parking lot at Carmax and drove home in our new to us 2009 Ford Flex, you could probably imagine me being sad. You would be wrong.
The Ford Flex is way more comfortable, way quieter (assuming kids weren’t in it), smells way less like the faint aroma of up to 8 year old milk, and just looks way cooler. Plus, the Ford Flex is making BeAGoodMom happy.
