They could have at least faked their interest

If you haven’t been following along I’m going through this list of questions I found in a post called 38 Interesting Questions To Ask Your Mom Right Now.  As I’ve started to answer more and more of these questions I realize just how right my post Open The Gates For Personal Development As A MomMe By Using Enneagrams was about my personality type. I handle most of these questions the way my enneagram says I should!

My other posts that are answers to this list of questions are:

19. What was the moment I hurt you the most when I was growing up?

I think I covered this topic in one of my other posts. I don’t think this moment wreaked my life or anything but it definitely had the biggest effect on how I act towards other people now. When I was little my crush asked me to be his girlfriend and about 10 STEPS LATER HE BROKE UP WITH ME.

20. What was the moment I frustrated you most when I was growing up?

It may sound like a simple thing, but the moment from being a kid that frustrated me the most was the time I tried out for the higher level soccer team in my town. There was a team that was having a tryout and from what I’d seen it should have meant that there were 15-17 positions open on the team. Well that wasn’t the case. We showed up to try out and the people running the tryout eventually told us that something like 12 girls were returning and a few girls were moving up from a lower age group so really they only needed like 1 new player on the team. Now as an adult I find this a fair way to describe a tryout, but as a kid it was extremely hard to go out and tryout when really the coaches already knew who they wanted on the team and had no intention of watching anyone on the field to find any new talent. At one point the coaches had their backs to the field and weren’t even looking at us. It seemed like they could have at least faked their interest, right?

Yes, another moment of my childhood that “scarred me for life”. It opened my eyes again as to the unfairness and shadiness of life.

As always I’d love to hear what your answers would be to these topics!

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
