  • If I do a lot of prep the day before and my DS who has Asperger's has plenty of warning and hasn't gotten wrapped up in something else I have to fight him from, about 15-20 min. If DS is not mentally prepared to leave then it can take up to 45 min to get out of the house.

  • At LEAST an hour. It really depends on where I'm going and what I'm going to be doing and what I have done ahead of time.

  • About a half hour... And that's only if I have to get everyone dressed and packed up.

  • If they are dressed and fed, it can still take as long as 30 minutes. From getting up in the morning, the quickest I can get all 3 out is about 1.5 hours.

  • I would start getting everyone ready at least a half hour ahead of time and most of the time we ended up being early ....LOL. If not, we would be late and I hate to be late for appointments, etc.

  • somewhere like to the store, about 2 minutes, somewhere where we are going to stay over night it could be an hour or more depending how early they have to get up

  • As long as it takes them to throw on some clothes and shoes. 10 minutes maybe longer if I have to change and dress the baby right before.

  • maybe 1 hr...depends on how long it takes to get them ready to go out......

  • It depends on where we're going. Most of the time I am the only one getting all three kids ready so it takes about a hour for them and a half hour for me.
