Free book-- hot off the press

If you would like your name entered in a drawing to receive one of seven free copies of Almost Amish,  answer the question below by this Friday (make sure to leave your email so I can contact you if you win). Winners will receive a copy of Almost Amish direct mailed from the publisher. I will email the winners for their mailing address.
Here's the question:
When it comes to parenting, which type are you? If you're not a parent, you can guess :-)

Type A-You head up the PTA, preschool board, fundraisers for the team, etc. Positive- You make sure things get done the right way.  Negative--Everybody seems to lay back and let you do everything.
Type B-  You don't like to be in charge, but you are willing to pitch in and do your part for everything your kids do. Positive- It's nice to be involved and helpful without the stress of being in charge.  Negative- You can get steamrolled into doing too much.
Type C- You work a full time job and you don't want to come home to a bunch of work that someone at the school should be doing. Your job is to take care of the kids at home, it's up to someone with more time to help in the classroom.  Positive- You can maintain something of a time balance in your life. Negative- There can be a sense of disconnect between you and the other parents.
