Heh.
Not long ago I read an interview with a woman who summed it up perfectly. She said when she was pregnant, she pictured her life, with a baby in it. But in reality, the baby IS her life. Everything else loses priority.

My dad always had a pretty cool sports car and my mom drove the station wagon. Your budget gets adjusted in other places when you are totally car-oriented as my family is.

(DH could also name every sporty car (V-8, turbo) that had a backseat that would handle car seats.)

We did, just for fun, go to the Porsche dealership to take a look at the new Panamera. Four doors and four seats! Anybody have an unlimited budget?
me too! I was brought home from the hospital in a 911. After that my dad still had 2-seater sports cars for years. On the rare occasion he had to take us somewhere, one of us kids would sit in the hatch back!
