“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing.” Charles Schaefer

Today I had the pleasure of watching my 3.5 year old Great Nephew as well as my 16 month old Granddaughter.  My house was chaos!  The living room was a mass of pillows for Batman who was jumping from couch to ottoman to the floor destroying the world!  The dining room chairs were covered in blankets for the fortress.  The kitchen “tupperware” cupboard was emptied on to the kitchen floor as Batman’s destruction continued!  Of course, the baby just followed along loving every moment of it!  I decided early on there was no sense in fighting it.  I captured this moment on the kitchen floor just before nap time as the three of us surveyed the “mess” (Baby Girls description).  I’m trying to remember how often I sat in the midst of the “creativity” of my children, savoring the moment – like I did today with my Granddaughter and Great Nephew.  How much more aware I am today of the preciousness of every fleeting moment . . . the memories created.  How important just being in the moment is.  Treasuring it.  Relishing every second of it.  

This isn’t the most creative, or technically perfect photo.  It’s taken with my little point and shoot.  However, I think it is 100% perfect from an emotional standpoint.  At least from where I’m sitting!
