    Cute As A Bug!



    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.

    I like the accessory Spunky came with. It is better than a spare tire any day. Very nice new car there. Glad #1 adjusted to the stick. Except for a few bad things about driving stick (like being stopped on a hill), they really are a lot of fun.

    Oh man would my daughter be soooo jealous if she knew your daughter! She wanted a lime green one so bad when we were car shopping. She ended up with a silver Neon, but I still think it's cute!

    You are so brave driving a stick. Those things scare me. And I can relate to your car situation. We have two adults and one car.

    very cute car! everyone should know how to drive a stick, but there are two people who should never teach anyone how to drive it. one, is their father, and two, is their husband LOL

    my ex tried to teach me how to drive a stick, would yell a bit, then i told him to get out and let me do it on my own. he said, 'no, you'll strip the gears!' i said, 'if i strip that gears i think that would happen with or without you in the car!' we ended up buying a stick for our 2nd car, i had to drive it home and to work every day. that's how i learned.

    i think #1 is far better off having you teach her :)
