Hippie Dance

Tonight was a REALLY fun night for me. McKenna was in bed early and Matt is out tonight, so it was just Maddie and I hanging out. She was playing, so I decided to do a little updating of my playlist songs. Usually, Maddie has no interest in "my" music. If it isn't something from the Disney Princesses, our local Makin' Music CD's, or a soundtrack to a movie, she generally isn't interested.

So, as I sit here updating the songs on my laptop with the speakers turned on, I see her little feet moving to the beats. So cute. But the best was when she jumped up when Depeche Mode's "Just Cant Get Enough" came on and started totally rocking out. Now, yes, I will admit that the song is MADE for dancing to, but the fact that one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands of ALL TIME (I was a Depeche devotee in high school!) got her to get up and jam was awesome! So, I decided to get up with her and we were dancing like mad together and it was so much fun.

As we were dancing around, she was giving me pointers :-) "Mom, you have good moves. Now, do more hippie shakes." So, I started shaking my hips a little more and she said "Mom, good job. You are a good Hippie Dancer." If you only knew, Madison :-)

I see many more dance sessions coming our way :-)
