We really are a truck-needing family. We’re always borrowing Ry’s dad’s truck… needing to haul something, dump something, load something…. and with 2 kids, the quad cab is a must. I’m excited to take it camping this summer!
However… its come at a price- we traded in the Pacifica.
I didn’t think I’d take it as hard as I have. I kind of despise it right now. Kind of despise Ryan’s truck. Tears were in my eyes as I unloaded my carseats from the Pacifica. But… I know its what is best for our family right now (both space wise and financially). And, its about time I did a little sacrificing for Ryan to drive a vehicle he loves.
Honestly, though, I’m kind of excited about my new ride… probably just because now I can cram a friend and 3 more kids in with me! As much as I cringe at how uncool my van is (Jesus H. did I just say “MY van?”), it really is quite convenient. And, I’m sure the embarrassment will fade in time and I’ll grow to love my kid-cart.
*sigh* We’re now a “typical suburbia family”… hubby has his man-truck, wife carts the 2.5 kids in the mini. (Ok, so “cool” suburbia families would have a truck and an suv…. but whateva!!)
I just hope this is the end of car swapping for awhile. I hope we stick with these vehicles for more than a year… or two. Right, Ry? Right???
