I'm thinkin' something with lots of seats...

I've had the same vehicle since I was expecting my first child. I remember the excitement of getting my first "new" vehicle. I had owned only "used" vehicles previous to this purchase. It was very fun and exciting to go shopping for that one vehicle that I had dreamed about. I ended up with a Dodge Ram Quad cab pick up truck. This truck is now on it's sixth year in our family and when I bought it we were really happy with the extra room we had, but now since we are expecting our third child I am leaning toward something with more room. I would like to have some sort of SUV such as a Blazer or Sequoia and possibly one with three rows of seating. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have some cute little car like a Dodge Magnum to dress up with all sorts of cute Dodge Magnum accessories. But, I'm at a point in my life where that is just not practical. So, any ideas from my loyal readers what a mom of three would need...NO, NOT A MINI-VAN!!!!

I fought and fought against having a minivan. I loved my SUV. Finally, I had to give in and get a minivan. Guess what? I love it. It drives easily, and the kids and their friends and all of their STUFF fit easily and comfortably.

Plus, it makes road trips a breeze.

Yeah.. we don't want a minivan either. This is one time when always renting a car for trips has come in handy though. We've decided on a Chevy Uplander. It's almost a SUV/minivan hybrid.. all the room of a minivan, but it looks more like an SUV, at least in the front. Very fun!

Humph, no mini-van, huh? I'm just gonna say that I LOVED my Dodge Grand Caravan, but we ended up selling it to my mil and bought a Volvo station wagon. (Yes, I am quite the fashionista when it comes to vehicles.) Anyway, I kind of like the looks of the Acura MDX.

I used to have a Tahoe and I loved it! Now I have....a minivan! Ha! I love it, tho!

We have a minivan that I LOVE...but I digress....
The Saturn Outlook has a third row and it's pretty nice, so does the Toyota Highlander. I really like the Arcadia, too, but I'm not sure it has a third row!

We went through this a few months ago when we had to replace our totaled minivan...we went with another van but looked at every car known to man with a third row!
Good luck!
