Is it Time to Give Up the Minivan?

Is it time to give up the minivan

When I had my first child I fought the Minivan. Then, I had another, and another. I started to carpool, haul sports equipment, vast amounts of groceries, and god knows what else. I became attached to the Minivan and what it symbolized: motherhood, family, good times. Then, it happened. The teenagers started to grow up. No more carpools, no more hauling. And the question arose: Was it time to give up the Minivan?
