Champagne tastes for the apple juice kid

J has decided we need a new car.

This is not the first time she has decided this.

Last time we needed a new car that had a windshield wiper on the back window.

This time, her tastes have evolved somewhat. I'll get to that.

About a year or so ago, J developed a fascination with cars. And asking me what kind of car every car on the road was. She quickly learned to identify Vancouver's favourite car, the Honda Civic, or Figic as she called it then. Since then she has developed quite the repertoire and can rattle off a whole slew of cars, makes AND models for a lot of them. Where did she learn their names? Well, I can I'd tell her when she asked. The various makes with numbers and letters for models (BMW, Lexus etc) I've avoided, but she can still identify them and she knows the difference between a sedan, a hatch back, a mini van, an SUV, and a station wagon.

Which brings us back to last night.

Last night there were tears because we aren't getting a new car and according to J, we need one (for the record, our car is perfectly fine) and someone might take the car she picked out for us. It's special. It's not flat (I'm not entirely sure what that means) and it has a roof rack. But most importantly it's a black Mercedes-Benz GL-Class (like this one) with a roof rack.

That starts at over $77K.

Yeah. We drive past the Mercedes-Benz dealership on our way to and from daycare in the morning, but she's dreaming.

I guess she's got good taste though.
