Meet Kronk

The month before Adam was born we welcomed Kronk into our home, because our previous model had seen better days. With a child on the way, I needed to be practical about my surroundings and I certainly needed a change. I needed a strong, charismatic and reliable companion to aid me throughout my adventures. Little did I know what I was getting myself into. Little did I know that my new companion Kronk, would become such a vital member of our family. 

He has spent the last 5 years and 9 months, putting up with a lot from our family. He has traveled many miles with us, he has endured being slobbered on, thrown up on, soiled by milk/juice sippies, kicked, mud filled, mud covered, being pushed beyond limits, and other stressful acts. However, no matter how rude or harsh we are to Him, he remains faithful and true. However, we do love him so. He is bathed regularly, and we even freshen him up, after he has been soiled by one of the children. We give him the yummiest of liquids, to fuel his need for speed. We truly DO love him. 

Little does my buddy know, that we are contemplating his replacement. 

I know that it doesn't seem fair to replace something so important and loved by our family. But the time has come. His old age is debilitating and is leaving us with bills that are unacceptable. It's not uncommon for others to kick their loved ones to the curb MUCH sooner than we are with our dear Kronk. I am sure there are others out there who would agree. 

So, with that being said, I introduce you to Kronk: 

I'm not sure what I'll do without him. 

We brought home all three kids in Kronk.

He has taken us on many family trips. 

He has made it through many hard times. 

He is a fighter. 

But he's also a teenager, and well... teenagers are trouble.... we have spent far too many nights scolding Kronk for acting up, than I care to count. 

Therefore- It's time. It's time to say goodbye. 

Time to upgrade to a newer and shiner model. 

Farewell, ol' friend! Farewell!

You know how I feel about *Jeeps* (withering tone of disgust)...:-D
And as for teenagers...can I trade mine in too? I would like her back when she's over herself though :-D
Hope you get a good, reliable new vehicle. (Hint: DON'T buy a Jeep!: hee hee hee)
