Oh my gosh, yes! I’m the biggest wimp about fessing up to things they wouldn’t approve of. The worst was when I didn’t tell them for months that FH had moved in with me. I knew they wouldn’t like us living together outside of marriage. But they actually took it pretty well, then changed the subject quickly.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes it makes me laugh and think to myself “You’re twenty-friggin-seven, for goodness sake!”.

I am the same way. When I was pregnant (at the age of 23), I told my mom via a text message (with me sitting across the room from her.) I BEGGED her to tell my dad but she would not,lol. I’m such a wimp!

I’m with you; I’ve hid a tattoo for 7 years and they still dont know my Fiance + I live together (I’m out-of-state) so I figure I will tell them after the wedding. I went sky-diving last weekend, and didn’t even tell them until after! I’m not going to change their minds on things, so I save myself the headache by keeping it to myself…haha

My sister got a tat of a grateful dead bear in her bikini area. Our mom found out about it when my sister had her first kid! Beat that for awkward lol.

Every time I do something parents wouldn’t approve of, I take a moment and relish in the glory that is being an adult.  No guilt here!

Me!! I’m 26 and just married and when we get pregnant I know I’m going to feel slightly weird telling them! Is like they KNOW you had sex… It’s so irrational but I can’t help feel that way lol

@MrsPom:  Not irrational at all! I have the same fears.. It’s just weird to think about. Just like I pretend my baby sister who basically lives with her boyfriend is a virgin, lol.

This post made me giggle. ๐Ÿ˜€

I don’t think I have that anymore, but I remember when I was in college and a guy took me on the back of his motorcycle for our first date (hottest. first. date. ever.) and I didn’t tell my parents for YEARS.

I have this fear every now and then lol! I think we just never want to dissapoint our parents lol. Although I have done many things they have not approved of in my 23 years. Like moving in with my SO and not telling them for like a year! 

@Mrs.DBee:  You are not alone!

I think they are used to my antics though, like getting my nose pierced, both the side and septum, and my tattoo. I didn’t hide these things because I have been financially independent since I was 18 and haven’t live at home since I was 17. 

I would feel so weird telling them I’m pregnant if and when I am. Like PP said, I’m sure they know I have sex but ew I rather pretend they have no idea that happens lol.

I’m not this way about everything (like, I’m pretty sure I’ll have no problem telling them once I’m pregnant).

But I have a tattoo I want to get on my foot some time this year and I dread the day they first see it because I know how much they don’t approve of tattoos.
