Tales from the Minivan

Multitasking moms spend a lot of time on the road. It starts with shuttling our kids and/or their friends to school and sports and ends with the hundred different errands we do on a day-to-day basis. We eat in our vehicle, get up to date on the news, listen to our favourite music, and, if you're like that one mom we saw in the parking lot at school, sometimes even catch a quick cat nap. Oh, and occasionally we use it to do something for ourselves like a trip to the spa.

 

Learn the basics of car pool etiquette, how to turn your minivan into a home, and more with these articles written by moms who live the minivan life. It’s guaranteed to turn your daily trips into a smooth ride for the whole family.
