When you think “suburban mom,” you probably picture a woman wearing Lululemon pants carrying a travel coffee mug and driving a minivan so she can kick ass at carpool. Me, I try to change out of the workout pants by noon, but I do make sure to I stop at Dunkin Donuts mid-afternoon and I have been in a lot of carpools (but I drive an SUV—just saying!).
When carpools work, they can be fantastic—good for you, good for your kids, and even good for the environment. But a bad carpool is worse than no carpool at all.
