Congratulations!

I'm not sure what it says about me that my first thought was 'wow, that's great' and my second was 'well, that explains the minivan!' ;-)

I almost posted the minivan question as an FAQ! :)

We almost didn't buy the minivan because Seth's car died the same week I found out I had triplets (the week before they told me I had twins). We felt like it might be jinxing the whole thing (at that point I really DIDN'T want triplets anyway, but I wanted at least ONE of them to survive!). But on the other hand, even if I weren't pregnant at that point, we probably would have seriously considered a minivan anyway, knowing full well that I was in the midst of fertility treatment and knowing that we weren't going to want to buy a car and then have to turn around and buy a van if I got pregnant.

No, it makes sense even if you were only having one or only even still planning on one. Minivans are just easier with multiple kids (multiple, including two) and having the car die meant that you had to plan for the future RIGHT AWAY.

I was just being a smartass because it comes more naturally to me than 'OMG babiez!' ;-)

Rest assured, you are not the only one to say "that explains the minivan" to us! More than one person figured I must be pregnant (with one) when we bought the minivan. Though we are by no means the only people in our neighborhood with one kid and a minivan. (Ian & Alida, for example bought a minivan when they had only one kid... now she's expecting their second)

Heh. No wonder it almost made it into the FAQ, then.

I honestly didn't think anything of it at the time other than 'damn, I hate driving my Mom's minivan, but whatever floats their boat.' ;-)

Our minivan rocks. It drives like a car. I always hated driving minivans before, but driving this one was easy.
