The Newest Car I Suddenly Want
Driving home tonight with a screaming baby in the back seat of our VW Rabbit I thought of the Volvo XC90. When I first saw the concept art for the 2016 I was blown away by what a stupid idea it was.
They took out the front seat and replaced it with a rear facing infant car seat that will swivel for easier child removal. That’s right, mom (or dad) gets to sit in the back seat staring at their child. Why would anyone in their right mind think this was a good idea?
This evening I would have given anything to be in that car. Edward was hysterical on the way to Granny’s house to pick up Victoria. We stopped to feed and change him and as long as he could see us he was happy. As soon as we closed the back door he’d start again. He was being sucky and lonely. I know he just wanted Andrew’s or my company but there was nothing we could do.
Our VW has be an amazing car for us, it’s driven halfway across the country and back. But all I could think was how much I wanted to be in that Volvo.
