You remember that moment when you said, "I think I need to buy a minivan."  It is one of those pivotal moments in life where you realize that "cool" and "trendy" are taking a back-burner.  You are now in minivan mom life.


If you've been dreading the minivan purchase, don't!  The minivan is the vehicle for Minnesota moms.  And actually, I've owned 3 minivans in my life and I will say, having side doors that opened remotely, a game-changer.  I could reach the kids super easy and didn't have to try to finagle and wedge my body in between seats to get to them to buckle them in.  It was almost like someone in the vehicle world knew the struggle moms were dealing with each day as we went from point A to point B with our kids and they made a miracle vehicle to help us out.
