One of the countless things that I love about my mom is that she was never afraid to look silly while she was having fun. Look at her here in the this giant ball pit at Chuck E Cheese. She must have been the only woman in her 50's in the pit. I think I was about 12 and I was probably pushing the limit as far as age goes, but look at her and that smile! Whether she was in a sea of colorful plastic balls,
attempting to become the next limbo queen,
or even that one time she got to drive an animatronic panda,
she was never afraid of looking silly and I love her for that.
