Do you drive? Do you have your own car? If not, do you ever drive your SO to work & keep the car all day then pick him up when he is off?

  • No and no. We have the one car, and I never got around to getting my license. It'll happen one day, but for now its not really a priority. :)

  • I have a minivan, and some days I feel like I spend all day in it. My husband has two work vehicles, mostly because if one of his is in an accident or is having mechanical trouble, he can't take my car and leave me stranded.

  • Well, I'm a FT WAHM, and yes, I drive. But no, I don't have my OWN car, even when I was working outside the home we only had one - or none a lot of the time. My DH isn't working, but when he was I never would have driven him in, if he needs the car, he needs the car, I can find a ride or walk - just like he does when I have the car.

  • I own my car and drive it! There were a few months where SO took my car to work because his car needed repair. But he recently bought a truck and I have my car back :)

  • We have been without a car for a few months, but before then I would sometimes drive DH to work and keep the car. I'd try to plan the girls' doctor appts in the same day as necessary grocery shopping, etc and try to get it done on a specific day of the week. It was always a nice break, too, because I'd take the girls to the park and out to eat or something special like that, and they always got excited when it was time to "go pick up Daddy"!

  • Yes I drive, No I don't have my own car. And No I do not do that.
    However I'll start when my daughter gets older. =D

  • LMBO... I honestly think stay at home mom is a mis-nomer. I dont know ANY stay at home moms that actually stay at home. And being that we are in So. Cal. you could not function with out a car. Between 3 kids in 3 different schools and 3 sports teams I probably drive about 250 miles a week not even leaving my neighborhood.

  • We have one car, one mini-van, and two motorcycles, so there are always enough vehicles to go around.
