Do You Dance Enough...

To me, dancing is a sign of happiness.  An expression of joy.  A letting go of inhibition. We dance a lot in the Michaud household.  We have an antique radio on our kitchen counter and play it often during meals and meal prep.  My kids use the kitchen as their dance floor.

You should see the choreography they create.  They will often hear a favorite song during dinner and get up and dance.  It makes them happy and makes Steve and I laugh.  I love to dance and will use them as a excuse.  Spinning, dipping, sliding...causes the giggles.  In those little moments, between small, uncoordinated moves...I feel very centered, blessed.

Such a simple act makes me realize there is joy in the little things.  I would much rather my kids remember me one day as the mom who used to dance with them as opposed to the mom who took them to the Wiggles concert or who bought them some toy.

Then they can take joy in a little thing!

Here they are...dancing...well, more like posing with dance moves.



I used the Crate Paper Dec. sketch for this one!  I love these colors.  Crate hit it out of the park this year and I can't wait to see their new release!

Now my kids are caught on film.  I hope their love for dance continues.  And that they are forever happy enough to let go and engage in it!
