Morgan and Taylor need a new ride.
Well, actually, their parents do. We have been a one car family for over a month now, and up until this point, it has been do-able. When I was still pregnant, we decided that we would need to get a newer and bigger vehicle once we had the twins, and so, we sold Mike's car to his sister and he took over my car. Now that we have the girls and I am going back to work in August, it is time for us to get a new vehicle. I have to admit that it will be sooooo nice to have another car again. Not that I am going to be going too many places with the girls, but it's the fact that I will have a car available if I need it.
Which brings us to the discussion of what kind of car to get.
Everyone keeps telling us that we should be getting a mini-van. If only you could have seen the look on my face when I heard that. I am not really a fan of the mini-van! I am way too young to be driving a mini-van! Right? Well, that's what I was thinking, until I thought about the pros and cons of driving a mini-van versus a car. The idea of more space is so appealing! But we have also been considering an SUV. Do we really need all that space right now, or should we wait for a couple of years and then get a mini-van?
I don't know yet what our decision is going to be, because we are still considering the pros and cons. But I do know that I feel a little better about the idea of driving a mini-van. I guess it's about being practical rather than driving a "cool" looking car.
