Then tonight after a friend's soccer game we came home to watch a movie and eat junk food. The badminton set was right beside one of the couches (which face each other), so of course we ended up playing badminton in the living room and food absolutely got involved. It was so much fun. And then later after our friend got up to leave, we busted up laughing at his butt, which had a melted m&m smeared all over it. There were the necessary "mess in the pants" jokes, and they left around 2 a.m. Ever notice how the later you stay up, the sillier you get? It's a beautiful kind of euphoria that reminds me of being a kid. When everything was simple and little things were funny and we didn't care about what we looked like or what people thought of us. Now if we want to be "silly," we have to really let our guard down and work at it, which is sad. However, "a little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men."
So try and get a little more silly into your life. There's a great article about it at http://www.hiphomeschoolmoms.com/2011/03/the-many-benefits-of-being-silly/
