Five Question Friday

Filed under: Five Question Friday — Amy @ 6:00 am

1. If you could have been (could be) any profession you wanted (brains and $$$ no problem) what would it be?

Where do I begin???

I love my career, so teaching is a no-brainer.

If I wasn’t a teacher, I’d (obviously) want to be a writer.

To write full-time?


If I couldn’t be a teacher or a writer, I’d want to be a professional singer.  I wouldn’t have to be a rock star (although, seriously…I’d be okay with that) but just someone who got paid for singing and could sing all the time.

I love to sing alone and I love to sing in a group.

I stopped singing in the choir when Tiny was born, or actually, when I was pregnant with Tiny because I was just too darn tired and rehearsals ran late, but lately, I’ve been thinking about rejoining or finding another adult singing group.

I really, really love to sing.

2. How often do you clean out your car?

When stuff starts falling out when we open the doors?

Is that answer okay?

Because it’s kinda true.

I just don’t think about it, otherwise.

When I put Tiny in his seat, I freak a little at what I see, but then I get in my seat, up front where it’s clean, and I forget about it.

And in the way, way back?

I have no idea what might be back there.

It’s possible we actually have 5 kids, but just lost one of them in the third row.

The good news is, we don’t really eat in the car, so it’s not biological crap that’s in the car.

It’s thirty-thousand pens, five-hundred and seventeen Mad Libs pads, three-hundred and three workbooks, etc.

But seriously, it all adds up.

3. Do you wish there was such a thing as fashion police or are you deeply relieved?

Who cares?


Who cares what other people are wearing?

The do’s and dont’s of fashion drive me nuts.

As if there aren’t enough things we judge other people about, the clothes they wear have to be something, as well?

And, you may be thinking, “Yeah, whatever…she says this because she’s completely a fashion don’t,” and you may be right, but fashion has never been something I’ve been too concerned with.

I wear what I like and I wear what I can be comfortable with.

4. What’s your go to food/drink/activity when stressed?

Chocolate and peanut butter.

Every time.

I can eat a Hershey bar smothered in peanut butter faster than it would take most people to even unwrap it.

I realize I need to substitute running or something for the chocolate and peanut butter, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.

5. If you had twins, what would you name them?

If it were completely up to me and Real Man would love any names I chose?

Boys:  Jack and Sam

Girls: Emma and Olivia

However, in the real world, Real Man would definitely have a say and I’ve been loving those names my whole life and I have four kids, none of whom are named any of those names, so I don’t think it would happen.

Plus, there will be no more monkeys, so it’s all a moo point.

(A little Joey Tribbiani reference…anyone?)


  1. I was baffled by the sentence ending with a preposition and then got to the moo point and thought, ‘she didn’t sleep well last night.’. So, thanks for the Joey clarification.

    And as for the preposition…..everyone may have have one…(me-a few more-but it doesn’t mean I am unaware).

  2. It’s funny you mentioned rock star. Jill and I were watching some you tube footage of Bruce Springsteen’s concert in Hyde Park. We were both thinking about how amazing that would be to have that experience.

    BTW – Olivia is Parker’s middle name.

  3. Love Jack. I have a Sam 🙂 and a car full of crap ( kids magazines , stones and quite often a branch or two among the sticks! ). Love the 5th child comment.

  4. Stopping by from Five Question Friday!

    I hate when stuff starts falling out of the van doors. I teach preschool and we have a system where we put the kids in the cars. I use to be horrified with how some of these vans looked . . . stuff all over the place! Then I had kids. Yep, I’m that van now.

  5. I’m with you on the “cleaning the car” question….the front is clean so I don’t think about the back 😉 Have a great weekend!!

  6. I totally agree with you on fashion! People really do need FEWER things on which to judge others.

    I never thought about adding peanut butter to my stress feast. Although if I’m stressed and there’s a peanut butter cup near. it’s mine!

    • Peanut butter makes everything taste better! Much like bacon!
