I drive a Honda Odyssey minivan.? I actually like it.? Why shouldn’t I?? Because it’s not manly?? Please.? It’s not like the 4 door Civic I drove last year, before getting the minivan, was any more manly.? And I don’t care what car you’re driving, snot on your shirt and cheerios stuck to your pants are not going to be cool.
The minivan has leather interior, 5 CD changer, and doesn’t struggle when you drive up a hill with the AC on.? It’s a shiny new car.? So why is it so bad for a dad to drive one?? I don’t get it.
When I pick up the Things at preschool every day, most of the cars are minivans.? But I never, and I mean never, see dads driving them.? Except me.? Are all they all laughing behind my back?? Or maybe they’re secretly jealous.
When we got the minivan, SuburbanMommy didn’t want to drive it.? She didn’t want to be one of those moms who drive minivans.? So it became mine.? I’ll say it again – I like driving a minivan.
If you are a dad with a minivan, where are you?? Come out of the garage.? Be proud.? Drive it like a man.
