The Mom Car: Where Coolness and Life Collide

The Mom Car:  Where Coolness and Life Collide Remember, remember the deep unquenchable need, the need for speed?  Truthfully, there was only .000005% of the population of teenage girls that were granted that most coveted of wishes, a pink Camaro with vanity plates, secretly staged in the driveway.

They know. And the stuff they know, some of you know too. Because I am known for being… candid. Perhaps too much so, according to the one who calls me, “Baby.” However, he’s too quiet.  Which is why we make a great couple.  He rarely says anything, and I say …
