My Child’s Life Has Become a Children’s Novel

Two letters from camp from Chestnut.

In the first letter, she mentions that they have encountered…quicksand. For real. Real quicksand. My lifelong dream/fear/nightmare. Spoiler alert: she did not struggle, and thus has not been sucked under to her doom. Phew.

In the second letter, she drops that she saw a bear. BEAR. The kind with fur and teeth (in case you were unsure). Behind her tent.

No word on whether it was looking for a hat.

Stay tuned for reports of talking animals, magical items, and lifelong friendships formed.

  1. QUICKSAND??? Where the hell is she? Gilligan’s Island?
    That is frightening. And the bear is scary too.
    I can’t wait to hear about the other things that she has survived.


  2. How lucky she was to see a bear!
    I saw three bears once, in Montana–mama black bear and her two cubs. She very graciously chose not to eat me. 🙂
