I have added two new videos where I show some of my favorite travel products that are available online. They are travel games by Melissa and Doug toy company that I really like. My family has played with these for years, and as a bonus, you can finally see ME in these videos telling you about the items!
I’ve been working hard on my Youtube channel recently and added a lot of new videos. I would love for you to check it out and subscribe to my channel, or at least leave me some comments and hit the “thumbs up” on a few of the videos if you like them. Please let me know what you’d like to see more!

OK, seriously, who else has done this? I cannot be the only person who has actually gotten into the wrong vehicle by accident. With all the look-a-like minivans around here, surely someone has even gotten into mine!
The first time it happened to me, I was chatting away with my friend Devra on my cell phone as I left the grocery store with one small bag in my hand. I was immersed in our usual hilarious banter and her delightful puns as I opened the door to my silver minivan, sat in the driver’s seat, and started to set my bag down next to me. As I looked in the rear view mirror, I was stunned to see the hatch was open and there a man loading groceries into my van! What the ?! Then it happened — my brain kicked in. This is not my minivan. It’s his.
I grabbed my bag, slipped out of the door, and started to walk back so I could apologize to the man. Then I realized that he was so immersed in loading groceries into his man-van that he had NOT EVEN SEEN ME! I began laughing hysterically to my friend on the phone. From her perspective I had just taken a double dose of crazy as I cackled like a hyena, and I could barely even tell her what had just transpired.
I gets better. If you were reading carefully, you may have noticed that I wrote, “the first time it happened…” This bit of foreshadowing tells you that it has happened again. My poor Sylvia (the name I give my current Mother Ship) must be suffering from an identity crisis, and I am getting a reputation for not recognizing my own car! There have been several other times I have walked up to the wrong shiny silver van with keys in hand, frantically clicking the unlock button until I realize my mistake. I swear that I am not even on the phone when I’ve done it, however, I do get the urge to call Devra when it happens. Sometimes I do. And we laugh.
Seriously — Has this happened to anyone else?

I love driving a minivan. It makes me happy. Don’t get me wrong — I’m not a mom who thinks parenting is a competitive sport. I am just a practical person.
My children have grown quite a bit from when I first started driving a minivan, but my family still hasn’t outgrown its need. In fact, now that my kids are bigger, it suits us more than ever. With more friends and even more activities keeping them busy, I can haul kids and all their stuff around town like a pro. We have an endless array of sports gear, camping gear, bikes, groceries, or even a van-load of my kids’ growing crowd of friends. I recently posted a picture online of my minivan loaded with Girl Scout cookies just to make my friends salivate.
However, even though I’m a practical parent, I still want to be pampered while I am at the helm. Fortunately the minivan makers are aware of my desires, and the new minivans are more luxurious than ever before. Let’s start with the best. US News and World Report ranks the new 2012 Toyota Sienna as number one out of the nine minivans it rated.
On their website, referring to their new Sienna, Toyota says, “Who says parenting requires sacrifice?” and I have to agree. Looking at this new minivan makes me salivate. I picture myself with the 8-passenger option with a removable center seat for the middle row. It has a two moon roofs, and a split screen DVD player for the kids. Those captains seats recline into loungers with a foot rest. I would plug my ipod into the USB port, or crank the satellite radio option while I drive around town with pure pleasure, knowing my family is safe and comfortable too.
The minivan is here to stay and is still a great choice for a family. If you’re looking for practical purpose and luxury in a vehicle, reviewers recommend the 2012 Toyota Sienna. To find one near you check out Toyota Sienna Deals. Yes, even a minivan can have style.

Testing my mobile blogging settings, and embarrassing my teens at the same time. I’m a lucky mom!

It does exist! We signed the book along with all the others who have left their mark at the mailbox at the very end of the island.
