I’ve always been a delicate sort of girl. I like things simple and safe.
- A picky eater, like toddler picky
- Someone who gets sick every time I leave my time zone
- Someone who sunburns in 20 minutes
- Someone who can’t go #2 away from home, well it’s true
- A law-abiding citizen who swears to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth
I don’t like:
- Anything too physical
- Loud noises
I have never:
- Had a broken bone
- Been arrested
- Had so much fun that I can’t remember
- Danced on a bar
- Kissed a stranger
So it’s no secret these adorable traits have made my world pretty small. Since your itty bitty grandma is probably more fun than I am, I decided to start living my life in reverse a bit. It’s high time I got a little dirty, had a little fun and lived to tell the tale without facing jail time.
Now lots of you have live very full and adventurous lives. My Mommy Friend Kathy was a skydiving, motorcycle-riding, world-traveling police officer up until a few months ago when she became pregnant. I can’t compete with that; I’m not even going to try. I realize I’m lacking the adventure gene and I’m pretty sure I’ll never have to deal with a faulty parachute in my lifetime if I never skydive. I can live with that, live being the operative word. I’m not ready to pen a Bucket List at 33 years old, but I am ready to step outside my comfort zone and share my experiences with you. Aptly titled, “Mommy Friend Gone Wild”, I am already feeling like I want to back out. I also realize this is why it must be done.
Please offer your suggestions on my quest to “go wild”, but please, go easy on me. As I continue this series you will realize just how much I haven’t yet done. Suggestions involving wet T-shirt contests and amateur stripper night will be politely ignored much to Big Daddy P’s chagrin; I have parents people (and a healthy dose of shame).
I have adopted a new mantra, sure to come in handy:
Check in on my progress as this fraidy cat attempts to live a more adventurous life.
P.S. I want my mommy.
