We are a family of 5 living in Idaho, USA. Kendra (mom and “I” in blog references), John (dad), Bird Nerd (age 10), The Boss (age 8), and The Entertainer (age 4; I promised that I would state, for the record, that The Entertainer wanted his blog name to be “Wildcat Grasshopper Karate Fighter”–I simplified). In Summer 2018, we will be selling nearly all we own, including our house, and traveling to parts known and unknown throughout Latin America.
About the blog name: A(Broad) With 4 Kids. I’m sure you’ve noted that we have only 3 kids. When trying to come up with a name, I thought of several, all of which were promptly and emphatically shot down by John (they were pretty bad, for the most part). I challenged John to come up with one that included either the words “abroad” or “travel” in it, and he immediately spit out, “Abroad With 4 Kids. Get it? A ‘Broad’ With 4 Kids and ‘Abroad’ With 4 Kids! You’re the broad and I’m your fourth kid, and we’re abroad!”
Yes, I laughed, because I have no defenses against his terrible jokes and puns. He says I shouldn’t laugh at them so often, because it only encourages him. It really isn’t that funny, but Bird Nerd thought it hilarious, and to be honest, I couldn’t come up with anything better. Anyway, it suits us–John does act like a child sometimes, and we do like bad puns. And so, A(Broad) With 4 Kids was born. You’re welcome. Or I’m sorry. Not sure which.
