I commend writer Alejandra Silva for her column about being a "cool minivan mom." She hit it right on the head.
It has never made sense to me how minivans got to be thought of as "uncool." All you have to do is put a couple or three kids in the minivan, and they will think it's the coolest thing they have ever seen. And when you have a van full of kids, being seen as "cool" by a bunch of teen-agers or some guy on a motorcylce should be the last thing on your mind.
Alejandra, you are right. We minivan moms are the coolest.
