Lilypie First Birthday tickers

I have a headache that won't quit in the face of Tylenol & an infection on one of my fingers. I will be glad when it's time to go home. In other news, the Mazda5 debate 2009 continues - do we buy a new car now when we have (in all likelihood) at least a year to pay it off before Wren arrives, or do we wait until we need one & risk losing the car allowance? Do we get ourselves into more debt now or later? The car allowance will cover about two thirds of the price of the car & insurance, we just need to make sure the other third fits into our budget. Gah, decisions, decisions!

Buy now. If you are anything like us, once your child comes you want to not have to worry about that kind of stuff (we didn't replace my old car, and I am regretting it.) Plus, we went into a fair bit of debt with the adoption and me being at home, not to mention BDH taking leave, so it would have been smarter for us sooner rather than later.

You make a very good point. It's hard enough to hold my attention for the whole car buying process, let alone trying to keep a baby or toddler occupied at the same time. And I know from buying cars - we've had 2 cars stolen in the last 2 years (within 10 months of each other, actually). The car we have now is the 3rd new car (well, the second stolen car was new to us, but not new per se) we've had in 3 years.
