I am most definitely a kid at heart. I have been known to jump in puddles. A preview for the latest animated movie is enough to make me giddy. Just ask Chris how I currently react to the commercials for Happy Feet 2. I prefer my drinks with a straw--preferrably a swirly/twisty/colorful one. When I go to the zoo, my excitement is the same as it was when I was 12 years old. I barely sleep Christmas Eve because my excitement about Christmas morning can barely be contained. And no, it isn't just about the presents. It is a quality I love about myself and I hope it never changes.
Today I continued to embrace my inner child by spending the afternoon at Chuck E. Cheeses with Chris, our friends Tammy and Jeremy and their two kids, Maya (5) and Declan (4). Don't be fooled into thinking it was their idea to go--it was mine. It isn't wrong to use my friends children as an excuse to go to Chuck E. Cheese. It's a win win for all involved.
