I have just started taking my youngest child to primary school, and what a eye opener it has been! I don't live in the nearby village where the school is situated; instead I drive my son there each morning and pick him up at lunch time as he is on half days.
School mums - I obviously don't belong in their clique
As I stand at the school gate with the other mums I have come to realise that I obviously don't belong in their clique. To be honest I think they are rude, unfriendly and even a bit arrogant.
I have often tried to smile and make conversation with them, but the very next day when I try to make eye contact I end up hitting the same unfriendly brick wall again.
It is so disheartening and I just can't understand what the problem is. I am nothing special, average in height, looks and weight. I'm not one of these "stuck up" mums with the 4x4 and an attitude to match. I am just an ordinary and I'd like to think, nice and friendly person.
I'd say I am pretty much resigned to the fact that I won't ever be able to break the ice with these particular mums. Fair enough I suppose, but life is too short.
One thing I know for sure, if ever I see a young woman on her own that may be just moved into the area or looks as much as a social outcast as I do, I will not be as shallow as these mums and ignore her!
