The Mountain

Standing on the top of Mt. Wachusett, while more skilled skiers took photos and enjoyed the view, I pondered how on earth I was ever going to get down the mountain without maiming myself and whether it would be more embarrassing for C to look up from his ski lesson and see his mother crawling down from 2,000 feet up or being ferried down by ski patrol.
In the end I made it down - on skis - and marveled again at a child's ability to force a parent out of their comfort zone.
