Mom Confession Monday

I’m a little late this week for no good reason at all so I’ll spare you some dribble drabble about lack of sleep, lack of computer time and general laziness. :)

When I was growing up I had a list of 3 things that I would NEVER do.  Like NEVER!  My sisters and I would discuss, at length, our never list.   But as the old saying goes, never say never.  My older sister said she would NEVER become a teacher and she is one.  My younger sister would NEVER move to Manhattan and she is loving living in the big apple.  My list…

1. I would NEVER date/marry a guy from Staten Island –  total ick if you are from NJ or basically anywhere in the NY/NJ area.

2. I would NEVER date/marry an investment banker.

3. I would NEVER drive a station wagon or minivan.

Well….

1. I married a guy who grew up on Staten Island

2. The hubs is an investment banker

and….

Yup,

van

Obviously taken before our monster snowstorm last night.  I was on time with this post, I promise :).

My new minivan arrived at the house on Saturday morning and I love it!  It has so much room, a fridge, many cup holders and smells new.

It’s official, I have done everything on my NEVER list.  I’m a card carrying suburban stay at home mom and I love it.

    I swore I would never drive a Volvo. The month before my 1st son was born, we bought a used Volvo station wagon. When I told my best friend from high school, she said “I think I might cry.” It ended up being cool in a nerdy sort of way and was the safest car I had ever driven…someone rear ended us when I was pregnant and our car didn’t even get a dent. Theirs looked like they drove into a brick wall. Enjoy your new van!!

  2. Love it! If you have more than one kid, you need a minivan – especially if you want to travel. I can’t believe they com with fridges now!
