Ok. I have to confess something right off the bat. See, if truth be told, I have never actually been asked any of the Frequently Asked Questions About My Blog. I know, it is a real shocker. However, since my blog is new, I imagine if I were to be asked any questions about my blog they might look something like the following questions. There, I got that off my chest and feel better already.
1. What is a Eurovan?
A Eurovan is a van made by Volkswagen and in my opinion is one of the coolest vehicles around. It is especially great for parents with young kids in car seats. It features backwards captain chairs and a pop up table. Here is how Wikipedia (the free encyclopedia) describes it: "The 2nd row of seats face the rear and are removable, the 3rd row converts into a bed, a folding table in the passenger area, window curtains, and a fluorescent lamp above the table."
All this to say you can ride in a Eurovan and feel like you are on a train in Europe when in reality you are on a highway somewhere in Texas headed to the HEB grocery to pick up toilet paper.
2. Do you ever get unusual stares from people when they see your van or have you ever had any unusual experiences as a result of owning this van?
Good question. Most people are simply fascinated by the van. We get a lot of "Cool!" and "Awesome!" from people when they see the inside. Also, we do get the peace sign on occasion. There is definatly a perception among people in general that those who drive VW vans are hippies. Unfortunatly I am not a hippie, although I do strive to be hip.
3. How did you come up with your blog title?
I spend a lot of time in the van driving our kids 25 minutes to school and back. Being in the van so much gives me time to think (When I am not telling the kids to quiet down or I am singing along to the Jonas Brothers with them) and it provides plenty of material from the kids and their interactions and actions.
