I am going to invest in new jeans when I loose a little more baby weight!
After much discussion and the long debate, I won and got my "top-of-the-line" minivan. I wrote my parents yesterday and described myself as "giddy over a minivan - GOD, I am all grown-up and such a suburbanite mom!!!" The great news is that I love being this person. Some people go into motherhood wanting it, but still dragging their heels on my changes that come with it. I usually embrace them. That is why we waited to have kids until we had been married fours years (dated 3 1/2 before) and were 27 years old (both our parents had children much younger, by the time I had Loo - my mom had three). We felt that we were ready to give our lives to those dependent little blood-suckers they call children!!!! LOL! Plus, we were financially stable at the time we had our first, but doing even better for the second.
I love my new wheels!
