This is Why UBER Should be on Every Kid’s Smart Phone

I’m at a party with my friend Laurie and we’re talking to this really nice guy who has a seven month old daughter. I’m typically really cautious when I talk to new parents because I don’t want to scare them. Especially Dads. Especially the Dads of daughters. We totally failed when I started talking to Laurie about how unpanicked I am about leaving Jane to wander Century City with her friends. “She has Uber.” I said. And sort of shrugged. Then Laurie and I started talking about why every kid …

Review: 2013 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring FWD

We took the Mazda CX-9 to Jane’s last soccer tournament. It was a few hours of driving with anywhere from two to four teenage girls, their soccer bags, their pillows, their overnight bags, their mounds of miscellaneous crapola and a bag or two of fresh food (I know, I have issues).

With three rows of seating the CX-9 still manages to feel like more of a …

2014 Kia Sorento Review and First Drive

Starting a Kia Sorento is an adventure taken in style. Starting a family is an adventure. Many might say it is the greatest adventure of your life.

Buying New Cars on a Whim

I’d really been looking for a larger sedan for Mr. G but then I turned on the diesel engine and felt the power and… well…. the rest is history. My father in law had just explained to me how he’s bought all of his cars on impulse. My father in law has impeccable taste in automobiles.   My tennis partner loves when I show up in new cars and she delights in driving each of them but this is the first time she’s been tempted. We’re going shopping in an hour. She …

2012 Kia Rio Review

  I got an email asking if I wanted to drive a Kia Rio. After I stopped giggling I was like, “Yeah, send her over.” I tried to envision myself in a Kia Rio and had a tough time. I’m a little princessy and I’m ashamed to admit it but I define myself by my car.  My daughter, on the other hand, was FREAKING OUT. She’s aware that my next car will likely be her first and she has a lot invested in me getting her a very cool car. …
