We’ve started a new tradition in our household.  The dance party.  It’s been just the thing to get us through the late afternoon slump.  Occasionally, it prevents WWIII over a particular toy.  We’re not picky about the source: iPod, YouTube, radio, cd, spotify, etc.  We crank it just loud enough to cause the neighbors to stop and wonder…..and then we DANCE!  We sing, we shake it, we play air guitar/drums, we conga line, we twirl, and sometimes we jump on the bed.  Okay that last one’s not really dancing, but it’s freestyle so who cares.  The point is…it’s FUN!  Today we cranked this tune: “press play”  and spun around the living room.  I took to the cedar chest to avoid the kamikaze cart wheels taking place.

We’ve loved sharing music with you this month.  Hope you continue to crank it loud and let it move your soul as we celebrate Summer during the month of July!

    Not going to lie … this is how I get a lot of cleaning done. Tunes, some hippy-hippy-shake, and a clean house! Love the look of joy on the kids’ faces.

    My aunt does a dance party with her two toddlers a half hour before time to put on pajamas. While the 5 year old boy prefers to breakdance, the 2 year old girl enjoys doing gymnastic like things and using all heights (and floors) in her interpretations. Little do they know that it’s really more to get them to calm down and get the “wiggles” out – and provide good entertainment for the older folks in the room!
