Inappropriate Kid Car

Dear Diary   

Today, on the eve (sort of) of one of the biggest car related weekends in Austin, it seems only appropriate to talk about cars. And specifically, the cars that some parents chose to drive their kids around in. Ok, so as usual, I don't want to offend anyone, and honestly, I understand if for some reason these parents/car owners are stuck in their vehicle. But the other day I saw a woman driving a 2 door rag top Jeep Wrangler with two young children in car seats in the back. It just struck me as completely ridiculous and not a bit selfish! Obviously, I'm all about being selfish as I don't even have children, and live my life like a college student, but it just seems weird. Surely that Jeep isn't convenient to drive with kids? I used to own one and it certainly isn't comfortable. What's the deal? Are those parents just holding on to what little 'coolness' they can? Are Jeeps actually a good car for kids? Am I just being a busy body? These questions and more are what keep me up at night...
