Getting delirious

I LOVE this thought so I thought that this would be perfect for my first "Wednesday's Words" post.

"I want my kids to see my eyes shine when I play with them.  I want to enjoy their play as much as they do.  I want to crouch down on the floor ad get delirious over the seemingly simple things that delight them.  I want to look at the world through their eyes.  I want to be theirs while I can. 

"I know that no matter how much I write about the funny things I want to remember, no matter how many pictures I take and stash in photo albums, no matter how much I will time to slow down and beg my kids to quit growing so darn fast, this time with young children will still slip away.  But the joy that I let myself feel while I'm in the moment with my kids will not fade with the years like the pictures and the memories; it will become part of me.  It will become part of my children." 
- Shawni Eyre Pothier; "A Mother's Book of Secrets"
It seems like the moments that I remember the most are the times when I get "delirious" with my kids.  Sometimes we just have to let our inhibitions go out the window and get down and really play.  It is so fun to just act like a kid...why don't I do it more often?
