I've been promising the girls that if I ever sold my book we'd get a new car. We were way overdue. My van and Da Man's CRV are both over 10 years old. So, with the fabulous news of my book deal, the first thing out of the girls mouths after "Hurray, that's awesome!" was "So can we buy a new car now?"
The new car is a Mazda CX9. We did a lot of research and test driving before finally settling on it. And we were smart. We got a great deal on a brand new 2010 just as they were bringing in the new 2011s. But the best part of the car is the seatwarmers. The girls call them buttwarmers and they are bummed that only the front 2 seats have them.
So as we were waiting outside for Da Man to come out, Angus sat up front and cranked up the buttwarmer.
Angus - Ah that feels toasty warm! You're so lucky, Mommy!
Me - Uh huh
Angus - Uh oh. My tummy is rumbling.
Oldest - Don't you dare!
Angus - Mommy! What happens if I fart while sitting on the butt warmer? Will I explode and die?
Oldest - No, but we will!!
