I have an overwhelming urge to buy a table.
Not just any table but a long one. Or one that comes in multiple boxes.
If not a table then I want to carpool. I want to drive all the kids in the neighbourhood somewhere or maybe just have a car party where we never actually go anywhere but have a good time doing it.
These are the things that are run through my mind, every time I climb into the Dodge Caravan Crew.
I’ll be driving along normally and then I’ll check the rear-view mirror and have these random thoughts about the things we could do with this van.
It’s the first time I’ve ever had THIS much space!
It’s not an easy thing for a chick who is used to using the brain muscles to figure out which child needs to be left behind in the grocery store parking lot if I want to get the watermelon home.
Suddenly I’m filling the extra deep cargo bin (it’s the space where the third row stow n’ go seats tuck away when I’m not using them) in the trunk with all my purchases and still finding there’s room for a few suitcases.
And when all of the seats are tucked away I could easily move a hockey-playing surfer’s entire apartment.
When the kids are in the car they do their best to spread out and make use of it all. They’ll opt for different rows knowing they can have a TV screen each, and if I put the loudest one in the back my sanity gets a boost too.
It’s not just me. It seems my neighbours have noticed too.
“Look at all that room! You need to have more kids,” one shouted to me as I unloaded groceries from the van on the weekend.
And that’s why I’m sticking to the table.
I think we should get a table! Don’t you?
