- Wedding: October 2014
Although we haven’t really begun talking about when we’re going to officially start TTC, I did hit a milestone with Darling Husband last night about the topic. He really needs a new car, after his alternator went out on Friday, and the one they put in on Saturday was a lemon and caused more problems for him yesterday. So, I picked him up from work to bring him to the dealership to pick up his car… and we drove through the lot looking at the 2015 Ford Explorers (he’s a Ford guy and has a 2003 Explorer currently).
He said that the 2015’s have the option of either a bench seat or bucket seats in teh second row. I got to thinking, and although I know a bench seat is probably better for a car seat, the bucket seats would make it easier if we had more people in the vehicle, along with a car seat, so you could actually get to the third row of seats. He thought that was a good point, cos at some point soon – we’d have to worry about that, and it would be easier to get into the back if we had more people in the vehicle than just us and a kid. A smile grew on my face, since he really never brings the topics of kids up (although, yes… it was my thought process). But, I took that as a step to him thinking about the future and what we’d need in a new vehicle for our family. He mainly drives when we go places, so we need something that works for every day and to expand our family.
I don’t know how soon he’d even get a new vehicle, but with the problems over the weekend and the SUV being 10+ years old… it’s about time. We’d share the payment amounts, so it wouldn’t all be out of his pocket (we have separate bank accounts still). But, it’s the little things and may get the ball rolling faster. I know I am ready. 🙂
