Never say never.
Any good mom will do whatever it takes to make life easier and more comfortable for her kids, even if it means driving a minivan!
You know...several years ago I leased my favorite car, a VW Beetle. I did it, knowing that I wanted to have a baby before the lease ended, and thinking it would be perfectly suitable for transporting an infant carseat for a few months. We all know what happened next.
Next, we made the move to the Ford Freestyle, and I thought it was a good compromise. Nice and roomy, seats 7 passengers when necessary, and lots of space in the back for equipment. It has almost as much space, but it's NOT a minivan. It worked for us at the time, and I actually learned to love that car. I was clinging to the last shreds of my coolness. But...it just isn't convenient for transporting the power wheelchair.
I finally accepted the fact that to really get good use out of Eden's power chair, and to make life so much more convenient for all of us, it was time to take the leap and go for the gusto.
So now, I am a minivan mama and I am trying hard to embrace it.
After all...isn't it what's on the INSIDE that counts???
