be-a-clown-2.jpg    When was the last time you went to the circus?

We took our then-4-year-old daughter Cera when Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey stopped in Raleigh last year, and my husband and I may have had as much fun as she did. From the elephants and tigers to the aerialists and motorcycle daredevils, the three of us were completely mesmerized. Jerry and I came home a lot lighter in the pockets (thanks to severely overpriced refreshments, including a snow cone served in a keepsake clown cup that makes it look like you’re eating the clown’s brain – so odd – and a light-up dragon sword, which our daughter chose over the light-up tiaras that every other little girl seemed to be wearing), but we were filled with a sense of childhood whimsy that we hadn’t felt in a while. So I guess it was a fair trade.

The circus currently is back at the RBC Center, with shows remaining tonight, Sunday and Monday (you can learn more at All four of us are going this year (not sure how it will go with our 2-year-old – don’t know if he can sit still that long) and I’ll post our “review” after we get home tonight.
