You’d Never Guess That_______.

24 September 2010 40 Comments

When you become a mom it pretty much takes over your whole identity. Almost everything my friends and I talk about, read about, buy, and do has to do with motherhood and raising children. Every now and then I remember, oh wait, I do have other interests…there was life before motherhood!

Share something about yourself in the comments below that no one would ever guess about you. Something that doesn’t have to do with being a mama. Have you climbed Mount Everest? Been to India? Love swing dancing? We want to know!

One person who comments with something funny, interesting, or cool about themselves will win 4 Bottles or Cups of their choice.

Bonus Prizes

If you bring a friend who is new to the BornFreeMom.com community and she posts as well, both of you will win and receive bonus prize.

Let us know that you shared this with your friends by posting on our Facebook wall “I shared the ‘You’d Never Guess’ contest with my friends!”

Good luck!

The winner is Katharine with the email address Kat****@yahoo.com! Her comment “I shot myself while fishing.”

    I have 6 tattoos and a full sleeve. Most the time they are all covered up so a lot of people don’t know I have them!

    You’d never guess that…I am one of Santa’s little helpers. Between the end of October and Christmas I personalize somewhere in the ballpark of 2500 ornaments. I take it very personally…thinking of each baby, engaged couple or whatever the occasion and how those people will cherish that ornament for life. It’s very gratifying.

    You never guessed that I rode on an ostrich while vacationing in Malaysia. I was the only one out of the whole group who did not fall or slide off. You had to squeeze your legs and hold on to the wings to stay on the bird. It was the wildest thing I ever did.

  • Monika said:

    You’d never guess that I have two Master degrees, because I apparently can’t spell in the above post! (I’m also 38 weeks pregnant, and a brain full of mush).

    You’d Never Guess That_______.

    My 4 year old son had gone to visit my parents for a week, so I took a vacation to Hawaii by myself to see some old friends. We had a lot of fun and harmless (aside of going skydiving) adventures that week, but one night we decided to go skinny dipping in the ocean. We arrived, stripped off our clothes and jumped right in. Shortly after getting into the water we hear a roar of voices. To our surprise it was a party of people coming to do the exact same thing! It looked to be approximately 50 people or so. No sooner than most of them started jumping into the water, we rushed out to get away from all these naked strangers. We reached the shore and suddenly we were being blinded by a really bright spotlight. It was the cops!!! Eeek! Frantic to find our clothes in the midst of this chaos along with 50+ other people scrambling to not get busted. Naked bodies EVERYWHERE! We finally found out clothes and got out of there. I could not believe how close I had been to getting hauled off in a paddy wagon for “indecent exposure” on a beach! How would I ever come to explain that one on my record? Lived and learned. I will never do that again. lol

    That although I still have some Xmas decorations out, I hated Xmas for years and seriously contemplated boycotting it at one point. Now I love it but there was a period of about 5 years where anything Xmas related made me cringe.

  • Sarah said:

    I broke up the band my hubby (Boyfriend at the time) was in. Think Yoko Ono and The Beatles.

  • Heidi S said:

    You would never guess that:

    I am the only child out of 5 that does not have cancer, both parents and all my siblings have cancer and so far I am the only cancer-free one in the family, praying to pass it on to my two daughters as well.

    I saw the changing of the guard at Lennon’s tomb in what is now St. Petersburg, Russia when I was in high school!!

  • Jessica said:

    You’d never guess that…I used to hunt deer and antelope every fall with my dad. We would head west and stay in an RV in the Black Hills for a week. It was so much fun!! I miss it and hopefully as my boys get older I can join “the boys” again. =)

    For 3 years I was the State Champion in my age category for 22 rifle shooting in Kentucky. I’m an outdoors girl and wish I had more time to enjoy it! :)

  • Christina said:

    I love the few stretch marks I got while I was pregnate. After 5 months of bedrest and 6 months of non-contractions pills each litle stretch mark was just another step closer….

    You would never guess:

    That I broke my wrist and 2 weeks after I got my cast off I ended up falling and breaking my other wrist :(

    You’d never guess I have my Christmas shopping done for my 3 month old daughter, and started listening to Christmas music in my car!

    The heart of your writing while sounding agreeable initially, did not sit well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you might do nicely to fill in all those gaps. In the event you can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly be impressed.

    Even as WASA currently claims the lead content is not harmful, this is still questionable to many parents, activists,
    environmentalists, andd ldad experts. As the medical negligence for miscarriage is increasing then misdiagnosis
    negligence caims are also increasing with the same stampede.
    A defect in a path or road does not mean iit is a hazard.

    …Listen to some great music here…

    [...] Look for AXA – one of the most interesting BiH rock bands from the late 90′s – early 00′s. The band later changed it’s name to INGRAY, went to USA and released several unique materials for different publishers. It’s founder, established creat…
