Since having kids, my car has taken on a life of it’s own. No matter how hard I try, it becomes a landfill in a matter of hours. Between school drop off and pickups, traveling to Cub Scouts and dance lessons, and of course, constant trips to the grocery story, pediatrician and pharmacy, we spend an average of two hours per day in the car.
My husband and I have a
long-standing argumentfriendly debate about how to keep a car clean. As in, he thinks we can and I think it’s impossible. He believes we should empty out the car of all personal items each and every time we get home. Ha! Doesn’t he know that at any given moment, I could have an urgent need for baby wipes, sunscreen, or a granola bar? He even went so far as to implement a surgical booty system in his car, in an attempt to keep all the sand/dirt/mud from our shoes off the floors. That system lasted for 2.5 weeks before he had to concede that it was not only inconvenient, but also ridiculous.
I swear, between all the stuff I deliberately keep in the car and all the stuff the kids accidentally leave in there, we could survive a zombie apocalypse in our car for weeks!
We once did a MomCave LIVE episode all about the state of our mom-mobiles. You can check that out, here.
