I have to say the first two weeks of ownership have been blissful. The Prius has a lot more room than one might think. We got just under 33 miles per gallon on the very first tank. Currently we’re at 35 mpg on present tank.
Granted the Prius doesn’t handle corners nearly as well as the MINI Cooper, but it does have many creature comforts we didn’t have with the MINI including: navigation system, Bluetooth, and a roomy backseat. Don’t worry, we’re not going to put some obnoxious environmentally friendly bumper sticker on the car. A smile to a HUMMER does the same trick… or a friendly wave.
In other news Anna is enjoying her first few full days at daycare. Wednesday night she rolled over three times while we were Skyping, yes I made it a verb, with my wife’s dad. I think our daughter is going to be quite the social butterfly. She loves her class and picks up lots of new developmentals by watching the older kids. We did have a couple brutal nights early this week. Anna didn’t want to sleep soundly unless we held her which makes for a long night. I may have slept on the floor in her room a couple times using a Boppy as a pillow. Good times. I’m happy to report she slept for ten solid hours without any middle of the night cuddling. Yeah!
*his – we think we’ll name the car "Al" for Mr. Gore and because of that Paul Simon song from the 80s. Have a great weekend everyone!
