Yes i do!!! I have 3 kids in 3 different schools!! Daughter in last yr of hs, son in middle school, and little one in kindergarten! Of course they all get out at different times. By the time i get one its time to get back in to get the other!!! Its so annoying!!!! I feel for you believe me!

Its nice to know thati am not alone. Everyday I drive and p/u my youngest of 3 from school. twice a week we have hebrew school. My odest has band practice once a week in the morning before school and once after school. Football practice on Saturday. Baseball Practice on Wednesday. Games are fri, Sat and Sun. Drum Lessons on thursday. My only free day is Tuesday. ButI'm sure that will change soon.
We actually decided to take a break from winter team sports so thatwill give me my rest to get ready for spring.

Wow do I ever... I have 2 school age kids and here is the rundown-Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Intermurals, Orchestra, Soccer, Baseball, City Children's Choir, Church youth group, Church Choir, Girl Scouts, and regular Church School. The hardest part is my other child is 2 so he is stuck in the car with me... It is hard at times, but they are only young once so let them enjoy it and be involved in as much as they (and I) can handle!! They grow up too fast

I am a single mom with four kids so I understand that feeling. I have one playing football so I signed my daughter up for cheer. Last year my daughter did dance so my 9 year old did tumbling at the same place and same time. We try to coordinate activities, but it does not always work. Many times I have to ask for help from other team parents. Car pool works great because you are in the car, but your kids are entertained with new people so they do not fight as much. I do not know if this helped you, but know you are not alone. Watch over scheduling, this leads to more stress than fun. Enjoy this time while you can, because one day they will drive themselves.

Some days I do! It makes me crazy. My car is my 2nd home! My husband always complains because it's so messy, but that's what happens when you live in your car!! I have an 18month old, too, so dragging her in and out of the carseat wears me out! I'm thinking of trading in house and car for a motorhome because at least then, I'd have a place to lay my head between stops! ;)
