    I absolutely love this. What if we approached motherhood as the people we were when we were camp counselors or babysitters. Wow. Interesting concept!

    Oh no! I did the camp thing in the Poconos back when I was a teen. The things I learned, my dd is NOT ready for! I see where the writer’s going with this and I really like the raising the hand bit but the first thing my mind thinks of is: how to make a fake ID and how to roll a…well, let’s just say it wasn’t hard-boiled eggs!

    Thanks for sharing the link to my camp counselor memories. I’m trying to continue to recapture my inner-camp counselor (along with the girl who loved hiking, skiing, etc).

    But I do agree Monique – I (and my brother) learned most of my worst habits at summer camp.

    Between being a camp counselor/babysitter and being a mom of camp-aged kids lies a vast wasteland of being a mom of babies and toddlers, during which it is quite easy to forget tricks like this. I look forward to the day when I’ll have kids old enough to know what a scavenger hunt is, much less be able to do one independently.
