The process of buying this car (a 2002 Toyota Sienna) was so awful only now, hours later, am I excited about it, but... Yeah. Big changes over here in the past few days. Monsieur done got himself a job, so Le Petit Comte will be going to Montessori preschool/day care*, and we needed to become a two car family to accommodate that.

So why a minivan? Well, we ultimately want 3 kids, so we figure just get it now. It was that or an SUV, and I really dislike SUVs.

  • the monthly check will hurt, but I am still just SO PUMPED it's still way less expensive than a complete no frills daycare in NYC that I'm all "take all my monies!"
