The Greatness of the Minivan

Can I get a shout out from all the minivan driving, minivan loving, minivan living mommas out there? I mean, does anyone else realize how much of our lives as moms are spent in the minivan? No. They don’t.  Minivans are the Renaissance Men of today. If a minivan were a person, it would be […]
