There wasn’t some big sign that said “GET MARRIED NOW”.

Plowing through this interview sheet of 38 Interesting Questions To Ask Your Mom Right Now has been so much fun. I hope my answers are letting everyone get to know me better!

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


21. (If she got married): When did you know that you were ready to get married?

There wasn’t some big sign that said “GET MARRIED NOW”. I don’t know that you get into the mindset to be married or not, but when I met my husband I was already in my thirties and while I wasn’t quite feeling the pressure to get married from any outside sources, I felt like if I was going to have kids I wanted to have them in the next five years or so. I think at that point I started looking more for husband material boyfriends than the fling type relationships that we all encounter in our twenties.

My parents were in their late twenties when they met so for me marrying later in life seemed to be normal. My brother and his wife had met a few years before and just about the time I was starting to settle down they had their first child so everyone was in a family based mindset and I fell right into place.

22. When did you know you were ready to have kids?

In my early thirties I knew that I wanted to be a mom. I didn’t have a set date planned out but I knew that I should have them in my thirties if I was going to have them.

My husband and I kind of did things backwards. We bought a house, got pregnant and then got married. It wasn’t the most traditional approach, but basically from about the first day we moved in together I figured we’d be together. thirteen years later no one is paying attention to the calendar of events.


What’s your marriage and kid story?

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 365MomMe 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.
