Okay all you Mommies out there, I need your advice!
So we are only a family of 3 right now – planning on at least 1 more addition to the family in the future – but we are already feeling the squeeze when it comes to transportation.
Let me explain.
2002 Honda Accord 4 door – I love it!! Great gas mileage and it has been a very good little car for us for the past 8 years.
And it does us well. The 3 of us can scoot around town and have no problems. That is until we have more than 1 other adult with us in the car.
That “Big Boy” car seat sure does take up a lot of room in the back seat. Yikes.
Now this usually isn’t a problem but we noticed it a lot this weekend when Jeremy’s parents were here for a visit. In order for the 5 of us to go anywhere together we had to either take 2 cars OR borrow my parent’s minivan. Umm…annoying!!
Now, I realize that they do not come to visit THAT often so this isn’t that big of a deal BUT let me give you another situation – going to dinner with my parents.
Well yes, they have a minivan but my dad is getting rid of that soon. What will we do then?
I know that we cannot afford a HUGE car payment and I would really miss my small little car and I feel rather stupid driving/buying a big car for 1 child! Plus with gas prices going sky high – Oy, I just don’t know! HELP!!!
And I worry that most SUV’s have just as much space in the back seat as my car.
Any suggestions on maybe a larger sedan or is our best bet to go big or go home? LOL
Here are some other cars that Jeremy has brought up to me.
So there you go, now it is your turn. What do you drive? Want to drive? Or HATE to drive?
