Before backing the van out of the garage, you should:
*Make sure daughter #1 has a right shoe and a left shoe, not two matching right shoes.
*Make sure daughters #1 and #2 are in their assigned seats so there is no fighting.
*Make sure son is in his own carseat, not sitting, grinning, in daughter #2's seat.
*Go back inside and grab the diaper bag.
*Check to be sure you have your wallet and military ID.
*Go back inside to fill and hand out water bottles to all four kids...it's gonna be a hot day.
*Go back inside and get one for yourself, too.
*Go back inside again to get the cold bags, re-usable grocery bags, and milk crate full of empty bottles.
*Make sure daughter#3 has her seatbelt on properly, and while you're at it,
*please be sure to notice that she is also wearing two right shoes, and
*go back inside to find the matching left shoe.
*Grab your car keys on the way back out, and since you are going grocery shopping, you should also
*go back inside and get your grocery list off the fridge.
*Get in the van. Do not look at the clock to see how long that took you!
Have fun grocery shopping!
