When it comes to parenthood, you should never say never

Yeah, not so much.  Taking my kids to the grocery store is a last resort, period.  If I’m forced to take them shopping, there is no couponing going on, period. Don’t ask me how two four-year olds can turn coupons in to weapons.  They just can.  We were once “that family” who sat in a nice-ish restaurant next to a child-free couple obviously on date night.  They didn’t glance our way once…because our kids were engrossed in their tablets.  Go me.

Parting shot:

“I might break every single one of my ‘I never’ rules, but I will never, ever, ever, drive a minivan.”

While a seats-8 vehicle with a built-in DVD player does not yet grace my driveway, I’ve succumbed.  We’re officially on the minivan hunt.  So, if you have any opinions on the Odyssey versus the Caravan or maybe just a shoulder to cry on while I mourn the loss of the lass bit of my hipness, give me a call.
