One thing kids have that I don’t is ENERGY. They need to move, they need to get it out. I need to lie on the couch and have someone fan me. But that’s not important right now. So at least once a week…everyday if you want….I stop the world and we dance. I can be vacuuming, sewing, sweeping the porch and a couple of kids will be hanging around, needing to get their energy out. I stop and say, hey….let’s dance!
I’ll whip out my phone, turn on some playful music and we’ll dance like crazy for the whole song. Be silly….be wild….bust a move! Hold their hands, spin them, dip them, toss them in the air. For the older kids, dance around them like a chicken and pull out the old Charleston steps you learned when you were a kid.
This shows them that you understand their need to move. They need to know that you’re not just about laundry and clean floors….you’re about life and joy!
Dance Moms at its best!
