I used to drive a Volvo......that I was in love with. When we decided to become foster parents, we knew we needed something with a third row. The Tahoe was our answer to needing more space.
And, I don't love my Tahoe. It's not even close to love. It's really not practical for us. There is no storage behind the third row at all. It doesn't really work for us and really won't work once we have a baby in tow that will need baby stuff like a stroller and diaper bag and all the "stuff" babies need.
The only thing that works for us in the Tahoe are the bucket seats in the second row that allow Addison to get to the third row easily. Other than that, I'm not a fan. There is no place to change a diaper. I know that sounds crazy, but it's important to a momma with a baby.
I don't know what the best answer is. We are considering a few things....a Ford Explorer,
a Ford Flex (that's Brian's pick).....I think it looks like a lunch box
a Toyota Sequoia
A Honda Pilot
Possibly even a....dare I say it?....a van....like a
Honda Odyssey (which apparently you can put a spoiler on to make it seem cooler)
It's so hard to make a decision. I feel like I may have to drive a million cars to find one that I like. Don't I sound picky?
There are just certain things that I care about as a momma.....like space to change a diaper, room for a stroller when the third row is in use, easy access to the third row (where I wouldn't have to move a car seat from the second row). Plus, I want something safe that drives well and will last.
Oh goodness.....finding something new is often tough....I'll keep you updated on the search. It should be interesting.
Do you have any advice to offer? Thanks for all your comments on Facebook. It's so much fun to see everyone's suggestions.
