My MIL has a Honda van and she LOVES it.... and actually, she has no grandchildren around her and her kids are grown, so I'm not SURE why she bought a van...lol

Congrats! That's exciting! You're going to need it! Welcome to the minivan mommy club! I just got a Mercedes R350 (kinda looks like a minivan) and I am actually really enjoying it! Only problem is DS1 doesn't want to sit in the way back when baby comes. I guess we will deal with that when the time comes.

Great wheels! It will be SO nice to be able to easily fit everyone inside! We have been wondering how we're going to fit everyone in our little Jetta. It might work for us 4 (once baby comes) but when DSD is visiting I'm not sure we'll ever be able to all go anywhere together. Perhaps once baby is no longer in an infant seat. We'll see. I'm not sure I'm ready for a van though...maybe a bigger car? LOL. (Yup, I'm in denial!)

Congrats on the new ride! We need a bigger car before baby comes (sadly my WRX won't fit any three seats across even Radians)

Hoping sometime this week. I hopefully (fingers crossed!!!) have a buyer for my beloved, trusty Corolla - will find out for sure on Wed. So if all goes well with that we can call the leasing company and have the Odyssey within a day or two!

I'm sure you'll love it!!! It's looks really nice! We've been talking about mini-vans too but will probably wait a couple years. Right now I have a Toyota Matrix and I really love it. It's like a small car but it has tons of space in the back so two kids will be no problem and I love the all wheel drive. Don't think I could give it up, if I get a van it would have to have all wheel drive. I think the Toyota Sienna has it but not sure about the Odyssey?

Is it new or if not what year is it?
Heather, we used our Jetta for a few months with both kids but trips were really hard because it just wouldn't fit everyone's stuff. So we got a minivan when Noel was about six months old. It's nice because we can leave the back seat down (at least until baby comes!) and haul a lot of stuff plus take extra people. I think it's worth it, but that's just me. And minivans have come a long way and don't look nearly as minivan-ish as they used to.

We'd be leasing the 2013. Trying to decide between the LX and EX (EX is a little more/month but the LX doesn't have auto sliding doors and with trying to get 3 little ones in and out of the car multiple times a day, I think it's a 'luxury' worth paying a little extra for...

Woohoo!!! We have a Honda Odyssey and I freaking LOVE IT. And let me say that I was AGAINST a mini-van all my life. I hated them. But omg, the convenience is AMAZING. The one thing I always hated about vans were those stupid sliding doors. I'm kinda small/weak/no muscles (lol), so it is like WORK for me to man-handle those things. But with those power doors, omg, I am in HEAVEN. And the dvd player with the tv in the back for the kids... I want to freaking kiss the person who came up with that idea. LOVE IT. Ours was new when we bought it, but it's a 2010 now. I know they've since updated it, so I'm sure it's even more awesome now. Enjoy!
