So I wrote a post last year trying to convey my jealousy of the toaster drivers in the carpool lane.
I meant every last word of it.
As much I loved my 2002 Toyota 4Runner and the coolness factor it provided – it didn’t accommodate three kids, friends and stuff. We tried to make it work while I coveted the other mom’s rides, but sadly it didn’t.
So this Winter I traded in the vehicle that transported our family for nearly 10 years and was ankle deep in goldfish crackers, and sold my soul to the suburban mom Satan and bought a Toyota Sienna.
My life is now changed forever.
Everyday as I back out of the garage I kind of scream “OHMYGOD I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS VEHICLE!!”
My intention was to write a post as an ode to my minivan that was equally as awesome..but now I felt like only a song could really do our new Swagger Wagon justice.
And at 43 I finally have my own garage band.

*I apologize to Gotye for any butchering of your song that we did. I will never be a singer(whoa my ears hurt from listening to that again) but you have to admit the instrumentals were pretty damn good
*I asked the girls what song we should spoof – Astrid(SHE’S 2) was actually the one who mentioned Gotye’s song. True story. Esther wanted an Adele song – but whoa..depressing. Eloise mentioned Taylor Swift but my twang is even worse than my regular singing. Hard to believe. I know.
*Isn’t Eloise totally awesome on the piano.
*True story – I used to play the drums and would dream of having my own band and perhaps being Sheila E. But then I dropped the drums for cheerleading because nothing says ‘career path’ like cheerleading.
*I have the BEST KIDS EVER for doing this with me and having a ball
*I love my Sienna(Toyota does not know me nor did I receive compensation for mentioning them)
*I promise to NEVER sing for you all ever again. Unless I’m drunk.
