Large Family | Leaving the house



     There have been two incidents when one of our children was thought to be in the car, but was in the house still, and therefore was left behind. Thankfully it happened with an older child and we didn't get far, but it was still highly unsettling. I had to come up with something to help make sure everyone was in the car before we left...



     So I started doing roll call. Yep, just like they do at school. I call out "Roll call!", everyone settles down and waits quietly until their names are called.
-Simon!
-Here!
-Stanley!
-Here!
-Thaddeus!
-Here!
-Anthony!
-Here!
-Avigail!
-Here!
-Timothy!
- A child, who is sitting next to Timothy at that moment, calls out, "Here!" in a baby voice. They all love this part haha.

     If you're a large family, how do you make sure everyone is in the car before you leave?
