Okay so here's the scoop.
I saw this topic and I am in a similar boat as Christine. We have two small cars, a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire and a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. We plan on buying a mini van once our credit card debt is paid off in October 2012 and before baby #2 arrives which I am hoping is sometime in early 2013 the way things look now.
That way we can fit the two car seats and a dog. We have a Miniature Schnauzer and even with him it would be really squished. I usually sit in the back seat when we go on trips to see the family in Ohio with David and the dog (5 hour drive) and it is a pain but in case David gets fussy especially when he was younger. And, we don't want the dog to go through the windshield if we were to be in an accident. He has a seatbelt too.
We are renting a SUV when we go to Florida to see my in laws at the end of April so we have tons of room. That would be way too long in our small cars.

I'm not planning on buying anything for at least another year or two (or more), but I want to give DH some things to think about since he likes to think about things for awhile, LOL!
Can I thread-jack and ask what you guys would recommend for me?
Great topic, Molly! And your subject line is too cute - heehee!
We have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT Coupe
I actually had thought of that, Sarah, and decided it wasn't too big of a deal for us.
Thanks everyone for all of your responses.
