As a mother of 5 children, just leaving the house can be a struggle with all of them.  I like to call it “hearding cats”. As soon as I think I have all of them in the van, I go out to find, one has run back into the house to grab a pair of shoes, another one has climbed out to talk to the neighbor next door, one is still up in their bedroom and never ever heard mom yelling ” WE”RE LEAVING NOW!!!”. The two who ARE in the car are fighting about who gets the middle seat.
