Comments: I Did It!

I am so glad you got out of the house and had a decent time of it! I still haven't mastered getting three little ones very many places on time.

That is definitely an accomplishment. I'm glad it went well. :)

You go, girl! It takes us at least an hour to get out of the house. Sometimes it takes an hour for the three-year-old to get his shoes on. I hope the oldest two can get into and out of their carseats independently, 'cuz three carseats is really all I can imagine handling. I'm looking into a backless booster for the oldest, so maybe he can do his by himself. It's too hard for him to find the buckle when he's in the full-size booster seat (at least for the fastening part). Daniel's getting too long for his infant carseat, so we may be reclaiming Isaac's convertible for a rear-facing seat and moving him into the belt-positioning booster if he's tall enough. *Sigh* I hate carseats. I'm so glad we have lots of places we can just walk to (though that would probably be plenty tricky with five!)

Actually, even my three year old can buckle up her five point harness most of the time. Getting them to do their own carseats was a priority. She can't always manage, but she gets it 95% of the time without help, which is a huge thing for me. I know you have even more carseat issues than I do, since I can work the buckles without pain, but maybe your husband could work with the Jay to teach him to do up his buckles?
