Love haikus to my minivan

When our family found out we were expecting a third baby, we made the (tough) decision to get a minivan. We had been busting out of our smaller car and could never offer an adult visitor a ride let alone help out for a carpool.

Milo was so excited that he told his whole preschool about the family pregnancy by announcing, “We’re getting a van and a baby” in that order.

Love haikus to my minivan

3 adults, 2 big kids, 2 toddlers, with room to spare.

With four years of a Honda Odyssey under my belt, I love it. Whitney asked me to share some of my tips, logistics, and secret stories from life in the minivan. I chose to write these Haikus about our experience:

YES HOP IN
i can pick you up
there is room enough for all
grandmas, carpool too.

AND BABY MAKES FIVE
we love our baby
he screams in the car each time
sad i can’t reach him

IS ANYONE HERE?
we sit in silence
when boys have their kindles out
what a giant car

SCHOOL DROP-OFF
the magic button
opens all the doors for me
get out now, please go

CONFIGURATION
baby near sidewalk door
the back back is very far
boosters all over

WHAT’S INSIDE
books go in the back
i keep all the snacks close by
children everywhere

 CUPHOLDERS
cupholders are ten
only in the front seat, dude
hand spritz rides in style

ROAD TRIP
space for all our gear
room to stretch, read, sing, and play
but please no farting

Any questions?
