Well, we finally did it. This past weekend we got a new car. What a grueling process, but in the end is a very happy momma.
And God really helped in this situation. I had been pretty set on a small crossover size SUV. Hubs and I had it pretty narrowed down and we set out last Saturday to conquer a number of dealerships and hopefully bring something back home.
After test driving a smaller crossover, I admitted to my husband that I did, indeed, want something a little bigger. Awhile ago hubs was wanting me to look at Ford Explorer’s and I just refused.
We then looked at a few larger SUV’s and I was madly in love with the space. The groceries, the dogs, the kid(s) and all of my stuff can fit! Although I didn’t make the mini-van move, I can kind of see where you mini-van moms are coming from. It is so darn spacious! I was sold.
I tell you what, something about driving an SUV just makes you feel that more like a mom. I can’t wait to have the soccer team or dance team back there.
After dinner out a few nights ago, Chris was driving with Audrey and I for the first time in the SUV. He had a major moment: “Oh, I’m just an SUV Dad now!” Pretty soon kids will be yelling, “Are we there, yet?”
I love it.
