Then there is the spoof of it called "Mom My Ride". This one I have seen. This group of auto professionals take an ordinary mini van and "mom" it out with dents, spilled milk and other fun stuff.
Here's the link in case you want to (you have to!) watch it.... http://www.webtvhub.com/mom-my-ride-minivan-gets-pimped-out-mom-style/
And now, a true story about my car and how it has been mommed.
Once upon a time, we bought a nice new minivan (2006). 3 short years later, it is trashed.
Here's a pic of it today.Looks okay, right? Let me show you a closer look (do I dare?!!!!)...
The drivers side door panel is popped off - from mommy slamming the door in irritation of a screaming kid. Not my proudest habit and one that I have since broken. The dealer said it would cost $750 to fix. Husband tried tape, but it didn't work. I guess I'm stuck with it.
Here's a typical view of the carpet..
I thought about vacuuming the car out before posting this, but in the interest of true photo journalism, I opted to show you as-is.
There are mystery scratches on the side and front bumper. Don't ask me... I have no idea where they came from!
I found this little guy hiding. I don't blame him.
The change/drink holder in front was broken when my 3 yr old stepped on it while it was open. It's holding on for dear life right there so I opted not to pull it off just for a photo.
There isn't anything gross in this photo, unless you count my icky diaper bag that needs to be retired. But I wanted to show you the clever "errand" basket that I keep in my car. It's great! It typically holds school paperwork, mail, notebook paper and pen, etc. It really comes in handy. I think every car should have one!
There are a few other things not pictured, sadly. Stains on the carpet, and a letter "B" that was written on one of the seats. The back window occassionally gets stuck open, presumably from being played with too many times by my daughters toes while I drive. And there's probably more too but you get the picture.
My ride has officially been mommed. Lucky me!!
