Dear Honda...

Dear Honda,

Let me start by thanking you for making perhaps the greatest mommy van on the planet. The Odyssey's ability to withstand such preschool art materials as crayons, markers, pudding, etc. is just fantastic. Who knew a headliner could be so resistant to chocolate pudding stains? And giving moms a carpet that can absorb both orange juice and jello simultaneously while maintaining that lovely shade of grey is just heaven sent.

But, might I add one slight improvement? I think a pane of soundproof privacy glass between the front and rear seats might be just what the Odyssey needs to ensure it's place in the "History of the Best Inventions for Mothers." It could take it's place right under the epidural.

And, you know, I'd be happy to test that improvement for you. Consider it market research. I won't even ask that you give me credit for the idea.

You had me at soundproof. Joy.

Amen! I too know the joy of the perfection that is the Odyssey! I named mine Magic. I fell in love with her before we had ever met in person but only on the internets. My hubby drove down to Atlanta to pick her up and make sure she would be a good purchase. I have never been so happy with a vehicle.

She is my first van and I LOVE her....but I could be in on that whole soundproof window thing!

You go girl! And if Honda needs more test marketers---where do I sign up!?!?

LOL! Josh and I have fantisized about the exact same Honda Upgrade. We should start a petition. "The limo of the minivan world" had a nice marketing ring to it :)

My husband thought of that when the boys were like 2 and 3. I so wish we could have gotten it done. I couldn't get my car engineer friend at GM to consider it. I guess I should have unloaded the kids on him for a whole day of errands....
