10.30.10 The Fake Van

So I had to take the van in to get the leather installed (finally!). Jeff and I traded cars so he could take it in for me. When I went to pick up Jakob Thursday in the Caliber (my old car), he threw the biggest fit ever. It took me like 5 minutes to get him off the pavement and into his carseat because he was fighting so much. I was so embarrassed. All the way home he cried and said over and over again, "". The dealership gave us a loaner car while ours is getting worked on, and this is a picture of what it looks like. It is a brand new Dodge Nitro. I really liked the look of this car when we were shopping around, but it does not have a third row seat, so we never really looked at it. After driving it a few days though, I do not like it so much. When I picked up Jakob on Friday though, I told him we had a fake van today (because of course he asked about the van the minute I walked through the door). He seemed okay with this idea, and got peacefully into the Nitro. Now all weekend when he asks about the van I tell him "No honey, we have the fake van this weekend, remember?" When we go somewhere he talks to himself and every once in a while I hear him say "fake van". He cracks me up.

  1. That is absolutely hilarious. You totally need to do a VAN scrapbook page for him!
