Maybe you all remember that #1 got her driver's license about a month ago. We have spent the last few weeks trying to make 2 cars work for 3 drivers. What a pain!
So, yesterday, we became the proud owners of a Volkswagon Beetle! Woot!! I've always wanted a bug since I was a little girl. My dad drove a lime green one with a moon roof in the '70s. Ever since then, I was hooked.
The only issue we have with the new car is that it's a 5 speed and #1 didn't know how to drive a manual transmission. Being the super cool mom that I am, I took her out (after her father had screamed and yelled and totally intimidated her) and taught her how to drive that little beauty. She was impressed that I could burn rubber. That car has some get up and go.
We live in one of the busiest cities in Michigan so I'm not quite ready to let her go just yet. I'm taking her to work with me today so she can practice in the country.
In the meantime, I think this will be my car for a bit. I've named her Spunky. I think the moniker fits.
