My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.
a mom-umental survey
I must admit that over the course of my every day routine, I often times find myself thinking “I wonder how so-and-so does this?” or “…figured that out?” Naturally, most of these thoughts surround parenting, and a lot of them are what some would call trivial questions. But I think it’s always fun to know what other moms (and dads!) are doing and thinking! I know that we all have different philosophy when it comes to child rearing, and that most definitely plays into our major, and even sometimes minor decisions, which is why everyone’s answers will be different. I would love it if you would take some time, and answer any of the questions you feel inclined to below… some I have figured out my own answers to, some I still need your feedback on! All of them I know that other parents would definitely benefit from hearing the answers to. I hope you’ll join in on the fun…. I’ll even go first!
(if you have a question you would like to add, please send me a message via facebook at My Journey Home and I will add it!)

How many children do you have? Will you have more children?
