  1. Very creative! I love your lists.

    1. Thanks so much, Alisdair! I've tried to condense things I've heard over the years...and, I'm just as guilty as the next expat!

  2. Very funny as usual! Like!

  3. In my defence, I don't drink coffee so am indifferent to Starbucks, I have never eaten yam butter and have not skied in Japan (yet). Because of the importance of 'having a car', my children are spared of the pressure from me to speak to cab drivers in Mandarin. I will never be found at boot camp. But other wise, guilty as charged.

    1. Love this answer-keep them coming!!
      Boot camp...what's that? Otherwise, I am sooo guilty!

  4. Discussing IB results when their children are 9 years old
