Oh the mom-mobile. The row of family members and school logo stickers in the back window, extra room for friends, all the space you need for a Costco run – it definitely gets the job done. But does anyone really want a minivan?


I have strong opinions. I would not minivan if I didn’t have to. If I had three kids, I would stuff three kids in the back of a Honda CRV or even in the back of a Honda Civic. In fact, that’s exactly what we did until we had four kids. The only reason I succumbed to the minivan was the fourth kid and needing that 3rd row. I hope to get rid of it as soon as I possibly can. I’m not really sure where I’ll go from this, maybe an old station wagon, but I hate the minivan.

I have friends who have two kids and they get a minivan and I feel like, “Why would you do that? Why would you drive that thing if you don’t have to?” And in case there were any questions about how I came upon the name for this blog…now you know.

Yeah. I could drive that. Source

How about it? If you have kids, did you join the dark side? Why or why not? And are there any childless folks out there rocking a minivan?
