On Wednesday I took Katie to gymnastics as normal. While she is off doing her thing I was sitting in the bleachers with the other mums listening to music and reading a book on my touch phone, when i heard two mothers behind me talking, i don’t normally eavesdrop but when they are practically in your ear its hard not to. they were talking about “that big girl” and how she shouldn’t be there with the other smaller kids. The “big girl” they were talking about was my darling wee Katie. I listen a little further to make sure they weren’t talking about someone else when they carried on about how badly she was dressed (shorts and a t shirt just like all the other girls) and how her mother did her no favours by bringing her to gymnastics as she would never be any good. I just about blew my top, how dare they. I turned and quite calmly informed them that it was my daughter they were busy running down and why was it they felt she didn’t deserve to be amongst her own age group. two very embarrassed ladies (and I use the term loosely) stumble over an obvious unfelt apology and looked everywhere but at me. they took the first excuse to move to the other side of the room as quickly as they could. While all I could think was those nasty bitches, how dare they run my daughter down. Yes Katie is big for her age but she is also the most caring, loving little girl out of all those in her class and her teacher has told me that often. So she will never be a gymnast, but doing the sport gives her the confidence and agility that she needs to play other sports.
why are people so nasty, i have always known little girls can be the nastiest creatures on earth but obviously some of them get it from their mothers!!!!
sorry to vent like this…..but I am still so angry….how DARE THEY RUN MY BABY GIRL DOWN!!!!!!
