Since three car seats won't fit in my car.
When did I get soooo old?

I'm 21 and I feel like I'm 30 year old soccer mom.
I like it but I am not like anyone around my age.


And I'll need that van when I plan on number 4 in about 3 years.
Just sharing the wonderful changes were looking forward to.


Share your own changes if you'd like.

Vans are great, versatile vehicles! I sold my minivan a couple years ago that was all wheelchair accessible with a power ramp and stuff, I wish now I had kept it cause it would make life easier now that we're expecting a little one. Right before we found out I was pregnant we had sold our beautiful mustang convertible for a more practical, very fuel efficient VW wagon hatchback because we needed more room for our growing german shepherd pup, little did we know what a good choice that was!

I miss my Passat, it was my first car, a '92 and it had heated seats. I haven't had heated seats since then
I have the same dilemma SydneyRose. I really don't want a minivan, I'd really like a Honda Pilot or a big SUV thing, but my man wants to stick with our Equinox

We got a 2013 jetta sportwagen TDI. Gets over 40 mpg on the highway. Just the right amount of room for us and my wheelchair can actually go right in the back without being folded down or taking the wheels off, it's great! I think it's going to work great for when the baby arrives as well.

My hubby is a auto tech specializing in diag. What I want and what I get are very limited because he sees all kinds of cars and flat refuses to work on any European or German cars. So I have a 1998 Subaru outback (he didnt like this choice either but i went with what i wanted in our price range), I am also limited as I want fuel economy, and I need all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive as it is icy 3-4 months of the year up here on our curvy steep roads to get anywhere. I would love to have a 4 door truck but it would cost too much to drive it. oh well I am happy to have a safe car that runs good to drive
