Eco-Blogger Kristen Chase is soon expecting her third child, and has
become quite aware of the difficulties inherent in trying to negotiate
automotive seating for two car seats and a booster - and let's not
forget to leave room for the parents, and storage for the necessary
strollers and baggage that little ones require.
We agree with Kristen when she says nothing puts a hurting on a budget like a new car -- and an eco-friendly one at that! She enthusiastically proclaims, "add in the fact that my husband and I really want something that's eco-friendly and doesn't have the word "VAN" in it and we've got ourselves quite a dilemma."
As part of her research, which has also included test drives of GM's Acadia and Tahoe Hybrid, and Volvo's V-70 Wagon, Kristen invited Askpatty to join her on a recent parenting podcast to discuss eco- and family friendly cars. You can tune in to the archived podcast at blogtalkradio.com/motherhooduncensored .
a former musician and college professor now pilot widow and
stay-at-home-parent, talks about all things mom (and not-so-mom) in her
bi-monthly podcast. Her "no-more-mrs.-nice-mom" take on motherhood is
not for the faint of heart. Weak bladders, however, are welcome.
