That’s right, me and my squeeze are finally hip. (Yes, we drive a Sienna)
All you minivan driving parents out there will enjoy this!
Just imagine how much swagger there is in one of those passenger vans!

omGOODNESS, the whole library of those videos is hilarious…but this one is the best! Thanks for posting!

My hubby LOVES those ads! Unfortunately, we require a 12 passenger van to carry our brood. Sure we only have six kids, but have you ever tried to cram two car seats and three teens into a minivan?

This is made of win 🙂 My folks have had a 15 with the back bench out, a 12 seater, then a 9 seater SUV and just in the last year or two are back down to a minivan as children leave the nest. 🙂

This is hilarious! My husband and I bought a minivan shortly after we found out I was pregnant. My brother jokingly told us, "Great, now you are going to spend all your time trying to fill it up!"
Right you are brother dear… right you are… 🙂

"I've got a swing in the front, a treehouse in the back."
I resemble that remark.
Of course I don't have a mini-van. Oh no, I have a mini, mini-van (Mazda 5). Yeah, that's how I roll, boyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

LOVE this video! Thanks for posting it. Now I have to go share it on FB with all my minivan driving friends 🙂

"Where the kids at? Where the kids at? No really where are the kids?" Classic. That happens at least once a week in our house.

This is hilarious, and it makes me feel sooo cutting edge! I've been driving a Sienna for 10 years…

Just two kids, though? If you're driving a minivan, I expect you to at least have 3. There is no need for each child to have his own row of seats. Get a more fuel efficient vehicle instead.
Maybe a follow-up video will feature a new addition to the family.

I love my Sienna! I bought it in the fall of 2008 (got a great deal on a "Limited" as no one was buying cars) just before our third was born. Now we're expecting our fourth. I tried out the Odyssey, looked at the Town and Country/Caravan, and even checked out some mid-sized SUV's, but for me the Sienna was nicer (and a better deal).
I agree that you usually don't need one for just two children unless you're open and hopin' for more.

Well, we must be way cooler than hip then 'cause we are in need of a 12 passenger van.

One of my brothers and his wife swear by their Sienna. They shopped around, but the Sienna blew away the competition, in their view at least. We're driving a Dodge Caravan that my parents gave us. They inherited it from my Dad's uncle and don't really need it anymore, and we needed a second vehicle that was more kid-friendly than the Saturn sedan my husband drives to work. I'm grateful for it, and I hope it lasts years more (it's a 1996 model). It has its quirks, but it's still rolling.
Guess I'm not hip, but I'm mobile. With number four on the way, our middle child is looking forward to being the watchful big sister in the back with the new baby in his carseat. That's about the only place left for me to sit, too, if my husband's driving, and the baby absolutely HAS to nurse on the way somewhere.
I'm not sure how we'll set things up when, God willing, number 5 comes along. The two oldest are in boosters, and youngest born child will probably graduate to a booster sometime during baby #4's first year. I'll probably be looking for something bigger when our Dodge finally gives up. Bigger and used–and cheap. It doesn't have to be pretty.
We might splurge on Scotchguard for the seats. We've tried the "no eating in the car" rule, and we've broken that rule more times than I care to count.

We have a "No eating things that make a mess rule" in our car. If it crumbles then it's usually okay. If it splatters or smears then it's not. So Cherrios are fine, but Fig Newtons are out. Also, when in the car all the children, even the six-year-old, has to use a non-spill or "sippy" cup. Basically anything that can be vacuumed is allowed.

Too bad there also had to be a plug for bottle feeding while they were at it 🙁

Exactly what I was going to say, Barefoot Mama. Couldn't the dad have been weighed down by a giant diaper bag or armloads of baby stuff or something? Grrr.
