Sydney gets her second wind every night before bedtime. It never fails, at 7:30pm or so she starts hopping and spinning around. We call these our dance parties because I turn up the music and the whole family dances around. One time I mentioned we were going to rock out and ever since then she comes up to me at night and says, "Let's rock out!"
Last night I played the real, "Big girls don't cry" along with Sydney's new favorite song, "Barbara Ann" by the Beach Boys. She loves the 50's and 60's. I attempted to show her all the dance moves her grandparents used back when they were teenagers but well, I think Syd would be better off learning the monkey, the twist, the swim and the pony by the people who really know how to do it.
That got me thinking-what dance moves will I show her from our generation? The thriller dance, the hammer dance, the moonwalk, the Molly Ringwald, and the electric slide? Sadly I can't do these very well, so I better start brushing up now. Looking back at junior high dances, everyone just danced. Tiffany, New Kids on the Block or Guns N Roses came on and you just rocked out. Okay, maybe we didn't rock out to Tiffany but you know what I mean.
Anyway, here's my kid and the hub rocking out last night to some good tunes from the 60's.
