Fast-forward a few years and I am married with kids. I figured someday we would have a minivan but I thought that day would be when we were expecting child #3 as we had a SUV that worked well at the time. Not too long after we had Miss A we got our van. A gem of a find on Craigslist. Needless to say, I was thrilled! Only two kiddos and we had our van. It would be a few months later we would find out that Miss S was on her way. HA!
Anyway, the story of how we got our van and why is not the reason for this post. One thing I noticed on the road is that minivan drivers sometimes were going super fast. (Or sometimes super slow) But I would notice them fly by me at times (and I was going a bit over the limit...ahem). I would get so uppity because they had their kids in there and they were flying by like a bat out of... well.. you know. Compromising safety, blah, blah... like those in minivans were held to some other standard.
Well, I think I know why minivans go speeding by....
...the kids are screaming and they are just trying to get home as fast as they can because whining and crying in a car sounds about 10 decibels louder than it actually is.
...there is a preschool aged child that has frantically notified her mother that she needs to go to the bathroom and WILL NOT use a public bathroom. She will, however, relieve herself in her car seat should you not get home fast enough.
...there is a woman in the back about to give birth.
Now, I may
It made me laugh.
Do you have minivan musings??
