Whoopsie

My wife and I have two adopted daughters; one just turned two, and the other is six months old, so my time in the garage has been little bit limited. Well as of this morning it looks like itís going to be even more limited:



Woopsie. Any tips or tricks will be happily received.

Congratulations. That is awesome.

My tip is to find a good reformed Baptist church they tend to have a lot of big families.

Congrats

Oh dear. Time for a 3 row SUV.
If someone tells you get a minivan tell em to shove where the sun don’t shine. My wife is just over 8 weeks now and I’m on the hunt for an SUV for myself.

Btw .. congrats! You are very blessed.

Congrats!

A friend said twins were 200% of the work up front and 50% later. Four years later, I am still waiting on the 50% part.

Twins jokes get old fast

A minivan should be in your stable. Just too many features for your family dynamic to not have one.

Keep the Jeep for when you do need something to do for yourself.

They will only be little for a small portion of your life, enjoy them every day as they are our future.

Minivans are the ultimate vehicle....I love them. I miss mine after going to an SUV.

Congrats on the twins! Kids are awesome. We are fostering after raising 3 and 1 is still at home.

Mothball the Jeep if needed. Donít sell it if tempted!!

Congratulations!

Only two choices to consider.. Sell now and re-enter the market when it makes more sense or with a less expensive Jeep so you can have both(+minivan) if money is tight.. Or put less money and mileage on your current rig and get back to it when it's time.

I chose the first option and I still miss the one I sold. That said, my son loves his backseat of the new rig. We've been able to keep up with our new tradition every year of his life, a drive in a Jeep on fathers day.

Best of luck,

Jeff B.

Thanks everybody! Iím afraid the minivan discussion is already being had. I may lose that one.

The Jeep definitely wonít be going anywhere. My oldest daughter already has a big interest in it from watching me wrench on the engine. Iím hoping the other three like it as well. We are blessed to live in a tiny town and my commute is only a mile, and my wife is self-employed from home. Itíll be ok.

And for any of the eagle eyed people out there, there are actually three in the picture, but the doctor says one didnít take. I guess I will consider that a dodged bullet. Haha.

Thanks for the thought! Something tells me Iím about to have 4 daughters. Haha.

I hope theyíre all into Jeeping like yours is. For fun, but also so they know how to fix things and figure things out.

A son would sure be nice though. Congrats. Don't fight the minivan thing. I know it hurts the image, but everything else about them is good. I had a couple Chevy Ventures when the kids were little and I used them like trucks. They hauled a ton of stuff and towed reasonably well too.
