If you have more than one child, what order do you put your kids into the car if you're taking them somewhere without another adult?

Zach puts himself in and buckles himself, I put Ryan in and generally put Bella in last. Really its more like both boys get in by themselves while I place Bella's seat on the floor of the van. Zach buckles himself, I buckle Ryan, then set Bella's in her seat's base.
mom of: Zach (10), Ryan (8), Bella (5), Mason (2), and pollywog #5 due 12/04/14

Is it sad I've been thinking about this already and wondering if there was a "right" way to do it??

I guess Liam will go in first since I will be holding them, and I'm hoping Reagan can climb in and then I can buckler her (not sure though, she'll be rearfacing still).

I tell them all to get in and then I put Natalie in. When this baby comes, I'll have to see what's easier, putting Natalie in first or the new baby.

Thank you Amber (Lovinmygirls) for my signature

We used the buddy system for a long time and there are days we still need it. The older ones would help the younger ones.

When I only had 2 or 3 of the kids at a time, one would hold my hand while I carried the baby car seat in the other. If the weather was decent, I'd put the baby seat on the ground, help the other one in, get the baby in and then snap the toddler in.

Christian is 4, his seat is in the middle. He climbs in and over Chloe's seat. Then i help Chloe climb in and buckle her and then help Christian if his buckles arent agreeing with him (that is getting hard with my growing belly). Cameron ( the unborn) will sit on the other side of Christian. Once he gets here I will open the side for Christian and Chloe to get in, walk around to Cameron's side, put him in and then go back to the other side to help them with buckles.

I don't have an order so much as a position. Cameron is behind the passenger so he can look out of the window facing left (he's got torticolis and a little flatness on the back of his head and needs to practice turning left). He looks out of the window more than look at his brother sitting to his right. Kiefer is behind the driver because of where Cameron has to stay.
