Last week I was talking to my sister-in-law and we were discussing our vans. The mileage was one topic. I was happy to announce we only had 30,000 miles (maybe that's a little pathetic but we'll be driving it forever) and Sonia said they had 50,000 in 3 years. Well I was wrong about the number. We haven't even hit 30,000 yet! The odometer says 29,921.
There are days when I would love to trade in the van for something smaller (and a little less mom-ish) but then I remember how awful it would be for the kids to actually have to sit next to each other, possibly touching. I will try to be happy with the blue bus for a few more years. At least until one or two of the kids are out of the house. Then I'm buying myself a nice little, fast car.
