Thirty Things About Me That I Want My Kids to Know.

Thirty Things About Me

I think it’s a great idea because my kids are young and some day they will begin to realize, or at least I hope they realize, that I am many things in addition to being their mom. This Thirty Things challenge will be hard for me because I’m not used to putting a lot of personal stuff “out there” (weird for a blog writer?) but maybe that’s why I don’t write as much as I should. So I’m stepping up and challenging myself to do this. I’m thinking I’ll do one per week – too much introspection might put me over the edge. Baby steps.

Here are the Thirty Things topics:

1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. What are 5 things that make you most happy right now?
3. What is your dream job and why?
4. Describe your most embarrassing moment.
5. What popular notion do you think the world has most wrong?
6. Describe 10 per peeves you have.
7. List 10 people who have influenced you and how.
8. Describe your relationship with your spouse.
9. What’s your favorite holiday and why?
10. List 10 things you would tell your 16 year old self, if you could.
11. Describe a typical day in your life.
12. What are your 5 greatest accomplishments?
13. Describe when you knew your spouse was the one or how I fell in love.
