no… I did not get the mini van…. I got an SUV. Although I was quite tempted to get a minivan even though at the tender age of 5 I swore I would never get a minivan due to how “uncool” they were. I now see how useful they can be! With the sliding doors, no kids can’t swing open the doors and hit another car, it’s much easier to get the car seat in and out of the van and so on… But alas, I stayed true to my 5 year old self and stayed away from them. I’m pretty happy with my choice, it’s just big enough without being too big! Yay for a happy mommy mobile!
