You know how people like the christen their yachts, right? Well, we thought we would do the same with the new minivan. Not only that, but we christened it good! Last week we went to the National Zoo and on the way there, the Little Man got sick... all over the carseat, the car's seat, the floor, and the back of the driver's seat.... yummmy.
This was not exactly what we had in mind, so we thought we do it the way a captain would with his ship. However, instead of a bottle of champagne we used another car, and instead of being really happy about it, we were not so very happy. Usually the captain gives the boat a name as well... in all our excitement, we failed to do this step as well, but we did get the name of the person who helped us in our time of need... Ms. Katharine.... with an "a". Well, I am sure we'll come up with a name fitting of a kidmobile, but in the meantime, we are hanging out in our less than stellar Grand Caravan. Not that I am knocking the GC, but the are many parts inside the vehicle that aren't quite 'new'... the head rest is broken, the floor mats are permanently stained, it smells, it is black, and frankly, it just isn't as pretty.
