As a young mother who still wears her jeans below her belly button, not much about my physical appearance screams "mom-material." But now, whenever I roll up to the Babies R Us parking lot, there will be no mistaking who I am. The reason? My new ride:
That's right- my new whip is a minivan. And I am darn excited about this.
Thanks to the generosity of my amazing parents, we traded in the old pick-up truck and I am came home from Thanksgiving with this silver bullet. It seats 8, has 12 cup holders, a DVD player and plenty of room for baby girl to stretch her growing, chubby legs.
Making the switch to a minivan is the kiss of death to some women, the final sign that motherhood has swallowed every last bit of your hipness and old, cool ways. But don't be fooled.
A minivan is still a sweet ride. This thing has a dashboard that looks like it was ripped out of the Millennium Falcon. It has a six-disc CD changer! Granted I have to fill it with Baby Einstein and The Wiggles Greatest Hits, but the swag factor is still there.
And to all my Lexington friends, I know what you are thinking, and don't worry- the answer is yes. I will be happy to give you a ride anytime.
