We have to get up and go three days out of the week. On those days, we have very little time for anything spontaneous. I'm like a task master cracking the whip--"Hurry up and eat, get your shoes on, brush your teeth, etc... but this day was one of our take our time, enjoy the morning, days. I turned on the radio to hear the weather on a local station. Both of the kids were at the table eating breakfast. A fast song came on the radio. The next thing I knew both kids were up from the table just dancing for all they were worth.
"Woo-hoo! It's dance time!"
Notice Abbey's "rock" face
It was so cute. So, I just had to join in. We danced together for the rest of the song. Then they went back to their breakfast.
After our impromptu boogie, I thought about how much fun it had been. How wonderful it is to be able to dance with my kids. And equally, how wonderful for them to enjoy me dancing with them. (A few years from now, they would be mortified to dance with their mom). Life can be so sweet! I'm so very thankful to have a lifestyle that allows me to take advantage of times where we can indulge in some child-like, unrestrained fun. What a wonderful way to start a day ~ with a joyful little jig!!
