Have you "mothered" in two different countries?
I can answer some questions for you - I am British but have had two children since we moved to Sweden. Actually, we are just about to move back to the UK, so I could have answered better in two months!!
1. Which two countries have you "mothered" in? How long did you live there? How many children did you have and how old were they?
I have two children and they are now 3½ and 14 months.
2. Did you learn the language?
3. Did you work? What did you do?
No, I have never worked. One of the reasons we are moving back to the UK is because it is very hard for non-Swedes to work in Sweden and I want to go back to work.
4. Why were you living in another country?
My partner is Swedish and I had always loved the country when we came on holiday. It is a lovely place and ideal to raise a family.
5. Was the plan to move there permanent or was it always going to be a temporary living situation?
It was going to be permenant. I never imagined we would leave, especially not after my children were born.
6. Did your children attend an "American School" (My dad did), what kind of school did they go to?
My eldest goes to a Swedish preschool.
7. Did you find it was hard to maintain family traditions living abroad?
No, not really. There are some things they just don't celebrate here (such as 5th November) and Christmas was a little weird because their main day of festivities is on 24 December.
8. Did you pick up new traditions there?
You begin to adapt so much to your new country that it is very hard to remember where the traditions come from!
9. What difficulties did you encounter living abroad?
The language is the biggest one. Just doing the simplest of things can leave you in a cold sweat. Although I can speak the language, I don't feel it is good enough and have never feel confident when speaking it, especially to strangers. Another one is not being able to buy things you are so used to - simple things like potato chips are just not the same here. And TV was another big one - I missed my soaps!
10. Do you think it benefited your children? How so?
It has only benefitted my children - they are now bilingual!
11. How did being abroad affect your relationship with your partner/husband?
It's been tough - I don't work and for the first time in my life, I have had to rely on someone else to pay for things. At times I have felt lonely and estranged.
12. What sorts of different customs did you notice between your approach to mothering and the mothering of locals/nationals?
The biggest one has to be breastfeeding. Here EVERY woman is expected to do it, no questions asked! And when women breastfeed, they do it everywhere - they are not self conscious at all. Which is of course how it should be, but it was a bit of a culture shock for me! Also, very few women become SAHMs - most Swedish women go back to work a year after giving birth.
Whats a must see in Quebec?
You did not mention if this was the province of Quebec that you were visiting or Quebec City specifically, nor how long you were staying so here are a few ideas for you from all the regions.
This city is the largest in Quebec, and probably the most culturally diverse. It is a modern metropolitain area, with excellent subway, train, and bus service. Montreal has many museums. The old port section is similar to Quebec City, but much smaller. It has horse-drawn carriages, cobblestones, and beautiful architecture. The food is fantastic, and there are many child-friendly restaurants. There is a casino, LaserQuest indoor laser tag center, the La Ronde (Six Flags) Amusement park and water slides, and in July, they have an international fireworks festival that happens on Wednesday and Saturday nights. The nightlife is more tailored to the young club-going singles than a couple with a child, but if you have someone who can watch your son while you are here, going down to any places between Bishop and Peel Streets may be something of interest to you.
This is argued to be the oldest city in North America, and is celebrating its 400th anniversary this year. The city has lots to offer in terms of historic sites. The walls of the old fort are still showing in parts of the city to this day. Walk around the cobblestone streets, take a horse-drawn carriage ride, visit the port, take a whale-watching river cruise, go see the re-enactment of the 18th century battles on the Plains of Abraham, and visit some of the museums in the area. Quebec City is mainly French, but most hotels, restaurants, and taxis will understand English even if they are not fluently bilingual.
Not too far from Quebec City is the Montmerency Falls. It's Quebec's most famous waterfall, and offers a spectacular view on a sunny day.
A few hours up the river to its mouth and you are in the Gaspe Region, famous for its great seafood and Perce Rock. The region is mainly francophone, but you may find some English-speaking people in the tourist areas, or at the very least you will have other tourists who might speak both languages.
The Laurentians, with its mountains that are ideal for hiking in the summer, and skiing in the winter. Hiking trips are best in September, when the leaves are changing color.
The Eastern Townships were settled by Irish farmers and French trappers, and the culture in the area is similar to Maine or New Hampshire, yet distinctly French Canadian. Certain areas like Ascot Corner, East Angus, Stanstead, and a few others, have retained a high anglophone ratio and is not uncommon to hear both French and English in the region.
