I believe the above summary is incorrect--they didn't have five kids. The baby, the 3rd kid, made their total family no. 5.
For as short-lived as this series was, it is memorable to me because I myself was practically a "baby" when the show aired, and it was one of the first TV shows I remember "having to watch". Had the TGIF era occurred a bit earlier (or if this show came a bit later) it probably would have been longer-running. The show may seem rather trite now compared to the advancing sophistication and mature nature of programming; but it fell in line with all the other sappy family sitcoms of the day, and it was enjoyed by families with young kids. Perhaps not all members of the family liked it, but often the sitcoms of that ere were "for kids" anyway.
Peter S. seems ageless, however, in that 20 years later he would play opposite his Newheart costar in Listen Up--still appearing young enough to play the same exact role if there were to be a Baby Makes 5, Part II.
