You won't believe it..........

We bought a freakin minivan!!!!! Yes, you read that right. We got a 2005 Kia Sedona. I traded my bright yellow Mazda Protege5 for a mom mobile!! Yikes!! The thing is, we needed something bigger, and lets be honest here, 2 carseats (God willing) will not fit in the back seat of a Mazda. They WOULD, but it would be a TIGHT fit. We just went with the intentions of driving a van to see which one we wanted when the time came that we needed one. Well they basically gave us a deal that we could NOT walk away from, so now we have a van. Man that sounds funny.

So when we got home with the van, we could barely fit it in the parking space because of the Ghetto Expedition on one side and the Ghetto Taurus on the other side. Both parked pretty much ON the line. They seriously better not hit my van.

I can't believe this is where my life is now. I went from the punk chick with green hair and peircings, to minivan mom with 2 kids. Gee and if you really want to add a shocker to it, one of my kids is dead. Wow. I would have NEVER guessed this one.

Funny how the punk rocker with green hair and piercings ended up in almost exactly the same place as the band geek who never dated!

Welcome to the world of the minivan mama! Life will never be the same.

cath, i was the geek without the band as an excuse. actually, i was more square and generally rah-rah. my irony is i am way more punk now than 20 years ago.

julie, i'd love to see your peri-punk and post-punk pics to compare!

Julie, my friend with 5 kids has one of those cars. Over here they are called Carnivals - appropriate I feel, as it can get decidedly like a bloody circus in a car that can fit that many kids in it! I would love to have a van but K refuses on the basis that they are too 'Mumsy'.

When you say you have these Ghetto cars next to you, are they brands of cars or just belong to your neighbours who have trashed them? Oh - and get them towed.

I saw your picture on your FF siggy. I was impressed that you were wearing black/cammo at the beach!! Bears out your metamorphosis perfectly! Still a little bit 'punk' I reckon;)
