How did I go from a new BMW X5 to a used Honda Odyssey? First, I test drove the BMW. My response was “whatever.” Then, I test drove the Odyssey. It was amazing! It called to me. No, it sang to me. It had every feature a mother could want, including a bottle cooler. I’m surprised I didn’t start lactating the way they played on my hormones. (I did start dripping while buying groceries the other day. Poor cashier. They milk started to spew just as I handed over my credit card.) Next, I thought about all the money I could save with a used Odyssey. And I wouldn’t have to worry about throw up and messes because it would already be a mess. Also, in some perverted way, I think if I save enough money I can retire earlier. Doesn’t make sense, I know. So, now we have narrowed it down to a used Odyssey. Still looking for the best buy. FYI – I test drove the Toyota Sienna and didn’t think much of it.
On to picking the right school. Any one have thoughts on Montessori schools? Are they worth the expense?
