I want them to grow up and meet the love of their lives

In the home stretch of this project and again I’m feeling that a memoir is in my future! I have gotten a whole bunch of blog post ideas from this and it looks like I’ll meet the goal of writing every day in October for #blogtober. So here goes the next installment of 38 Interesting Questions To Ask Your Mom Right Now !

Anyway… here are more of my answers:


29. What do you want or wish most for your kids?

Is it bad that I want different things for each of them? I guess not, but for a moment it seems like I’m not being fair if I want something for one and not the other.

For my son: Battling dyslexia is going to be a challenge for him his whole life. I want his confidence to not be shunted by the fact that reading will not come easy for him. I don’t have a clue what he will be when he grows up but I want him to be the best at whatever he wants to turn out to be.

For my daughter: I want her to make it to adulthood without being too scarred by the experience of growing up. I know that sounds so vague, but after a conversation with her the other day I have found that there are incidents in my childhood experiences that at the age of 43 and 10 months I still haven’t gotten over. I don’t want that for her!

For them both: I want them to grow up and meet the love of their lives. I want them to go into jobs where they love what they are doing and aren’t upset by having to go to work every day. Whether it be a garbage man or an NFL football player, I want them to live their best life not matter what it is!

30. What do you want your funeral to be like?

With a few major deaths in my extended family in the last few years I definitely have given this one some thought. I don’t really have anything specific planned out for it, but I think my biggest fear is that no one will show up to send me off into the unknown. Probably a common worry for people, but I think the worst thing that could happen would that my funeral would be unattended.

My hope for before that time comes is that I can check off some bucket list items. My most urgent one is handling my finances. I’m just now starting to get a real hold of how to handle them and while that seems crazy, it’s given me more peace of mind than anything in my life!


Have you ever thought about your funeral or are morbid things like that too much to handle?

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.
