Sometimes You Just Need to Get on the Floor and Play
There are few things that are better for you than laughing and there is nothing that can make you laugh like a child. My wife is out of town watching our other two grandchildren so I have been in charge of the boys when my daughter is working. I pick them up from school and we play all day until their mother gets home later in the evening. These two boys are a blast and even if you think you aren't in the mood to play...they find a way to make you.
Yesterday I was sitting upstairs doing some work when Zander and Zayden appeared in the living room and just stood there looking at me but being careful not to bother me while I was working. I finally looked up and said "did you boys need something?" Zander said they were just wondering if I "wanted to fight for awhile." I said I was busy but I would holler if I had some time.
After they went back downstairs I thought to myself..."what is wrong with you? play with those boys. There is nothing that I am doing that would be a better use of my time than to fight those boys". I called them up and said I had talk to them about something. They came upstairs and the fight was on. I grabbed them and we fought and wrestled for about half an hour. I haven't had so much fun and laughed so hard for ages. What a gift children are. Do not ever pass up the chance to have a child sit on your lap and listen to you read them a book or pick them up and playfully body slam them on the living room floor. Children are medicine. Make sure you get your daily dose.
