May May May, Mother May I?

The month of May is just about over, lovely month. It reminded me of a game we used to play on grassy green lawns, "Mother, May I?!" which was about asking a "mom" permission to take baby steps or elephant steps or umbrella steps towards her, eventually usurping her spot as the leader by tagging her.

It seems a strange game, asking your parent permission to do something ... but many of us are still asking our parents permission to be ourselves and live our own lives.
