When it comes to high energy entertainment, there is nothing to beat the circus; It's a rite of passage I think every child should have the opportunity to experience. As a child, I longed to see The Greatest Show On Earth, I read books with circus themes, my sister and I would make believe we were gifted trapeze artists in the circus, and I even begged my parents to let me take riding lessons because I pictured myself some day doing all manner of gravity defying stunts while riding bareback on my circus pony. (I had quite an imagination . . .)
Because we lived in the back end of nowhere, I didn't get to go to the circus until I was in early adulthood, but when I did go, it was exactly the magical experience I had imagined and I was hooked. I've been to the circus several times since that first trip, the last while wracked with nausea during the early part of my pregnancy - the circus was in town and I couldn't bear to miss it!
Yesterday evening, my daughter and I watched Bellobration, a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey souvenir DVD, and it was fabulous! She was thrilled by the Bengal Tigers and I just can't wait to take her to see the real deal, she'll be mesmerized! I know it will only be her first of many family pilgrimages to the enchanting world inside the Big Top.
