    Considering how hard it is to get the vaccine appointments and not to mention the hassle of rescheduling. Itíll suck this up, and just do either scenario of leaving your 13 year old in charge of one of kids. And take your 1st grader with you for DS1 appointment.

I don't want to take a chance to miss out on the shot! I might consider having DH go super early to his site and see if he can get a shot that way... then come get DS and take him. (Or even come home and take over for me!) But I can't imagine showing up late! We've only been waiting for this for a year now, right?
    Yeah, agree with this since DH's site is close. Have him go super early and if he's able to get it and then take DS to his appt on time, then great! And have your plan B in place, but definitely have plan A be something your DH handles on his own . YAY FOR SHOTS!

    Just be sure your appointment sites allow an extra sibling tagging along. A lot of medical places around here forbid extra siblings.

    I would rent a car and have your DH go in early. Around here I think as long as you have an appointment that day you can go whenever you need to, my parents went a couple of hours early and got their shots. If your DH is home in time, you are good to go, if not, leave the 13 year old in charge and the kids to fend for themselves (if they miss a school class, just let school know why). I would also let a neighbor know the kids are home alone and post their number just in case. Hopefully, your DH will be home before you have to leave (or soon after) and it won't be an issue (except the car rental fee).

    My DH would do the same thing. I had a really important medical screening scheduled last Spring that was 2 months overdue (he knew about it) and he scheduled an in-person meeting with his boss at the same time. I was livid since I almost had to reschedule the appointment AGAIN. DC ended up going with him and missing a class (not optimal)!

    Have DH Uber to the appointment and try to go earlier. Missing one zoom class isnít going to put anyone behind. Vaccination is way more important.

    As for DH and messing up the dates, do you have a shared calendar? DH, DS and I all have a Google calendar that is shared with all of us. My DH has finally learned to use it, as if itís not on the calendar, itís not my problem if something is forgotten or double booked. Heís great at remembering dates, so was resistant to using a calendar until I showed him my color coded calendar for work and home, way too much going on for me to remember it all. When he talks about an event, I ask ďis it on the calendar?Ē

    Yikes! Maybe I should leave them home. I can only imagine what shenanigans can ensue. I think I'll just have DH go really early. If he can get back before I have to leave PERFECT! If not, at least the gap won't be too large? I'll contact all three teachers (and the resource teacher, and DS1's teacher/school) to let them know what they might expect from us.

    I think we'll borrow my mom's car. She won't have driven it for a day when DH takes it. And she's been vaccinated. That's safe, right? DH can ride his bike to her house. He volunteered since it was his error!

    Yeah, so I'm the one resisting the calendar, lol! DH is ALL about the google calendar. Though that doesn't seem to help if you can't remember Thursday from Friday! I have a paper calendar hung on the back of my kitchen cabinets. I should probably get with the program!

    Totally safe. And itís fine to leave the kids home for a short while. (Definitely donít bring them. Every appointment weíve been to says NO EXTRA KIDS). I leave mine all the time while they are doing online school. Teachers understand parents arenít always available to help out and keep kids on track.
