We asked Canadian Writer, hockey mom, and YMC Member Rebecca Cuneo Keenan to test drive a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. Read Rebecca's story...
So hockey season is here again! And this year I will have two kids in hockey! And if I add enough exclamation points to my writing, I will sound really cheerful!
I actually am excited about Irene playing hockey. She's naturally athletic and competitive and I think she will be great. I also want to encourage my girls to pursue physical activities that celebrate strength and skill without added body image pressures. The local hockey league has a girls-only practice that will help her fit in, Ed will coach the team and she has a pink helmet. What more could I want?
*cough cough* MINIVAN. *cough cough*
Okay, fine. You guys win. What do you want from me?
When Mary was first born and I could have earned an engineering degree fitting three car seats across in our backseat everybody kept saying, "Get a minivan." But I was determined that we'd be just fine as long as we could fit the seats in. And we are just fine if fine means really, really cramped.
I didn't even realize HOW MUCH MORE ROOM a minivan has until the good people at Chrysler were all, "Here, try this Dodge Grand Caravan out and see how your hockey gear fits."
