Adventures of Mom: The Beginning
“Mom, tell us your adventures.”
My four-year-old son said that to me over breakfast, milk dribbling down his adorable little chin.
I think my jaw dropped. I wished I could regale him with tales chasing pirates, running from Indians, and all that good stuff of Peter Pan fodder. I may not have had such tales, I’ll leave those for his bedtime story-books though I suspect I ran with a few pirates (whether I knew it or not), and most definitely got chased by wanna-be guides (Morocco), had moonlight escapades across the moors, hitchhiked across Europe…
I loved seeing his eyes widen when I began with, “my sister and I chased rhinos on elephant-back- no we were the ones on the elephants, not the rhinos- in Chitwan National Park, in a country in the Himalaya mountains…” and thus the Adventures of Mom were born.
