... and maybe 2 hours with my 5 year old daughter "helping"..

You're starting them young. I had one of my sons (17 at the time), help me with the brakes once. After we were done, he asked, "is that all there is to it?" He's done his own brakes ever since and has always done his own oil changes.

The only tools I have are for the old rear drum brakes, the tool for removing and mounting all the springs. Oh, I did invest in a vacuum pump, so I could bleed the brakes by myself.
