Stephanie Torgerson, 32, of Pataskala, Ohio, said she simply can't put her three boys in her husband's Mazda 626. The 1-year-old needs a car seat, the 5-year-old needs a booster chair and she doesn't feel comfortable wedging her 8-year-old between the two. Sure, she could probably get better mileage in a minivan, but she doesn't like the stigma.
"I don't want to be labeled as a soccer mom," she said.
That is a great lesson you are teaching your kids. Better to spend extra money on gas and use up a valuable resource than to be labeled "soccer mom".
Great job lady.
