At Least One of Us Still Drives a Mini

When we were browsing Babies “R” Us for our baby registry what seems forever ago this bouncer really caught my eye because it looked just like my MINI. We added it to the registry and were fortunate enough to have someone buy it for Nadia.
Shortly after she was born we realized that the Prius was too small to haul the stroller and well, anything else. That meant that if we wanted to go anywhere we were going to need a bigger vehicle. A few days later I was trading in the MINI for a Hyundai Santa Fe.
Esther and I eventually traded vehicles. The Prius is a great car with all of the amenities but it’s nothing like the MINI. I get envious every time I see one on the road and there are plenty of them around here so it’s pretty much a daily occurrence. I guess for now I’ll just have to live vicariously through her for a while.
