A new addition to the family

Posted by

When you finally find THE ONE and you are together for a while, the question everyone always asks “So when are you getting married.”?

You get married.

Then it’s “When will we hear the patter of tiny feet”?

You have a child.

Then you get “When will he have a brother or sister”?

You have a second child.

Repeat infinitum….

At some point you have to get to a point where you feel your family is complete. So after much deliberation, convincing ourselves it was the right thing to do, we decided to add 1 more addition to our family! So please let me introduce you to the newest member of the DWB family…

Our new car……

Love his pose.

Wait what? You thought it was another kid? HA HA HA HA HA your crazy…luckily we’re not and we are very happy with the two beautiful children we have.

It was a big decision cos these bad boys don’t come cheap, even if they are used like the one we have. Our old car was great, it served its purpose brilliantly, but we literally have outgrown it.

LBs feet pushed up against the chair. With 2 car seats in, you were restricted to only 1 passenger in the front because the gap between the seats was too small to sit someone comfortably. If we went on holiday in the UK we could just about fit 1 suitcase, some towels and a packet of pringles.

So, we decided it was time for an upgrade and upgrade we have! The ford grand Cmax is a beast if a car and although it’s a little weird driving a bigger car it’s surprisingly comfortable.

7 seats
DAB radio
Keyless start.
Sliding back doors (no more banging them in car parks!)
A MASSIVE boot (if the last row of seats are down)

It basically has everything a growing family needs and although we wont be growing in numbers, these boys are getting bigger by the day and this car will hopefully be there to take them wherever they need to go in life!

Did you ever feel you family was complete?
Did you buy a family car like this?
Should I do a review?

As always, thanks for reading


  1. Having a decently sized car makes such a difference!

    We upgraded to a Galaxy people carrier from an estate car and with 3 kids (yes we are one of those crazy families) it has been a gamechanger

    Enjoy 🙂

    1. We are loving the space. We are going ona caravaning holiday on Sept so it will be tested well!

      As always, thanks for the comment!

  2. Fully endorse purchase of bigger car. As the father of three sons, I can only say that carrying their sport paraphernalia and teammates will become your future job – one which you will do lovingly while forcing them to listen to YOUR music in the Mirthmobile.

    1. We originally looked at those but the fact it felt even longer and loads of people warned us off them we found this. Only driven it home but loving it so far!

      Thanks for the comment!

  3. Awesome car, awesome space and awesome automatic folding mirrors that literally freak out your colleagues.

    1. Thanks for the comment! It is awesome. Luckily most if my colleagues are a but simple so easily freaked out.

      Cool name by the way.
