Okay, I said it. Not only do I drive a minivan. I love it. I think of it as a statement car. Some people drive Mercedes, others prefer a Porsche. I like a Town and Country with cupholders for all and a double DVD system. Give me a souped up minivan and I am like a child at Christmas – automatic doors, under floor storage, rear back up system, just thinking of it makes me giddy.
Minivans make statements like “I have 6 kids in the back, half of whom I have never seen before, I have snacks for all of them and even remembered the water bottles for soccer practice”. Or a minivan may say “I’ve got McDonalds fries shoved under the backseat and the faint odor is a milkshake accident from last week that simply wouldn’t come out”. Other days a minivan says, “It is 8:20 a.m. and I have made 4 beds, fed and dressed 3 children, packed 3 lunches, 2 snacks, wrote a teacher note for a playdate, loaded the dishwasher and yes, we are on time for school.” I am woman; hear my minivan peal out of the drive, with my kid’s songs blasting through the open windows as we cruise off to soccer practice, in style.
Does anyone else share this minivan love? Don’t be shy ladies, you are amongst friends.
