Flashback Friday

Yes you are seeing right...There are 2 girls in this competition and one came in 1st and one came in 3rd. That lucky 3rd placer is me. I wasn't even good enough to get 2nd place in a two person competition. (Maybe it was the bu font hair do) I never really thought about this until I saw this picture much later on in life. Like why couldn't these judges just give me 2nd place. Not like I'm a professional figure skater. I was just so happy that I got a trophy. ha

Figure skating was a big part of our childhood growing up. Bridget was actually really good at it and would have probably been pro if she didn't' stop. Instead she is a pro mother. Me on the other hand was not gifted with the talent to skate. They would give me the same routine every single time. Now I know why. Cause I couldn't even master that one routine. I eventually stopped skating. I would still go to the skating rink almost everyday. While Bridget skated her heart out and I played Pac Man and drank my chicken broth.

Word of advise....If your child is not good at something please do them a favor and tell them instead of letting them be humiliated like this later on in life :) haha jk Mom!

LOL I remember thinking she was sooo cool cause she was a good ice skater! Seriously, I don't understand why you didn't get second but it is kinda funny. Maybe the judges were confused...
