Five Kids: The Survey

Hi, Friends.

I’m looking for some feedback, and I’m wondering if you’ll help a girl out.

Will you take a few minutes to click here to participate in Five Kids: The Survey?

I’m incredibly grateful to you for reading this blog.  I mean, I completely understand that there are a million other things you could do with your time, but I just really love the company on this crazy journey.  I’m looking for ways to make your time here better.

The survey should take you less than 5 minutes to complete. Unless you’re long-winded.  For example, it’ll take my dad 10 minutes.

Since your answers are entirely anonymous, let me say now… thanks for participating!

  1. Thanks to everyone for your survey responses! Nearly 100, which was way more than I expected! I’ve been culling through them… expect some survey-related posts to come.


  2. I LOVE that you were brave enough to publish this. Too funny!

    Beth, you make me laugh, you make me cry. You encourage me and I’m sure so many other moms “out there.” If you can have this much fun and keep and positive outlook with five, certainly I can try to do the same with just two. Thank you so much! I’m not laughing AT you — With you. I promise. ;P

    Thank you SO much for your wonderful comment on my blog. And really, thank you for the links you offered too. I’ve been wondering how I can help — more directly — and your links are right on the money. I hope I can actually DO something for those in need now that I have that info. So thank you so much.

    Take care and have a wonderful beautiful sunshiny weekend. TGIF. I’ll still be lurking here in the dark shadows of your blog.

    Hugs to you dear Beth!

    • Thanks, Holly!

      I’m so very grateful to you for letting me repost your 4/8 story!

      Hugs right back at ya.


      • I forgot to ask after reading the ‘papaono story’: how come your kids call your dad ‘papa’? Is it a souvenir from your Indonesian times? That was my educated guess at least, you know, with all the Dutch influences over there. Over here ‘papa’ means ‘dad’, but I’m kinda guessing you already knew that, didn’t you? 🙂

        • Papa is my kids’ name for my dad. I can’t remember how we decided, though… maybe my dad picked it?

          I had a Papa who was my grandfather, and a Bapa, who was my great-grandfather. Bapa (or Bapak, more correctly, except the “k” isn’t really pronounced) is the name for father or mister in Indonesia.

          It’s a mystery!

    • Yay, Kelleigh!

      Nice work. And I totally caught that you can’t keep yourself anonymous. Love that about you. 😉
