This week we ask…
What would your kids be surprised to find out about you?
Olga of The European Mama: That I can sail a yacht and took ju-jitsu classes.
Aisha of Expat Log: Haha! Where to start! That I used to be known by a different name… that I smoked marijuana in a convent… that should leave ’em speechless!
Natalie of Afterschool for Smarty Pants: That I’ve been married to someone who is not her father. And, believe it or not, she doesn’t know that I have a blog 🙂
Cecilia of Spanglish House: that I studied in a military school, I am in the Bolivian Military Reserve actually. and that I did not use to be as conservative as I am now.
Galina of Raising a Trilingual Child: That I can also cry (my kids are 2.5 and 4.5 yo)
Thereza of A Path of Light: for some time I was goth, almost got suspended in HS for drawing the anarchy symbol on top the school’s logo in my uniform, tricked all passengers in a coach bus pretending to be the ticket collector, and other stories! But what’seven better is that I already told my kids and we evaluated those choices together.
Varya of Creative World of Varya: That I used to perform contemporary Indian dance.
Frances of Discovering the World Through My Son’s Eyes: I wanted to be nun. I was so determined that I went to the convent for a two-month retreat. On the 2nd day I knew that it wasn’t my calling. I called my mom, and she picked me up the following day. 😉
And mine? For me it would be that I once dyed my hair green and used to have a nose ring. Perhaps some of you would be surprised to know this too!

Haha! Great to put some mystery and misdemeanors to the faces behind these well-known blogs! Thanks for including me x
Green hair? I think I’d need to see a photo of that to believe it.
What a fun post!
One thing that always surprises people when they find out is that I was a DJ in a gothic nightclub for a few years back in my early twenties! I was never really a goth though (just a little “gothically inclined” as my DJing partner used to describe us!) so even at the time it surprised people.
My kids are a little young to know about nightclubs but I’m sure my past life will surprise them when they’re older.
Oh, and that green hair and pierced nose? Me too!
What a wonderful post! I love the honesty 🙂
