So He Thinks He Can Dance

One of the great things about running is actually having the time to just listen to music (oh yeah, and the fact that running gives you a great tush). A lot of the time that I spend training for San Francisco, I have actually not been listening to music, I've been using that time to think about fundraising, my mother and father, and just different uplifting ideas. But sometimes I do listen to the Pandora App. on my iPhone while I'm running. I love it.
Well, tonight I plugged it into our stereo system at home and we got to really "jam out" to some great "running" music. Well who knew Drewbie was such a dancer! We laughed and laughed while watching him just let it loose to Yaz and Royksopp (mind you, this is my running playlist). It was so funny. I wish I would have gotten a video of it, especially when he and his daddy were dancing, but I was just laughing too hard to even think about it.
Drew was just making up all kinds of crazy moves. Do you think it's possible that a 2 year old instinctually knows the "lawn mower?"

I think there is nothing more fun than dancing around the lounge room with your children. I try to do it on a regular basis. My DS seems to have picked up breakdancing from somewhere. It's hilarious to watch.

Sounds like a really fun time! I used to run (not able to any more) and loved the time to think & organize my thoughts too.

The pictures of my youngest son (8) dancing at my oldest son's wedding were pure JOY! Luckily, there were cameras everywhere! THere's nothing more wonderful than when our children are young and dance--it's pure JOY coming out of them infecting us all:)

I love it when the boys bust a move. They don't do it often so when they do it is a treat.

Which race are you training for?

Happy SITS Day!

Gotta get some video of that to put up. Sounds hilarious. What's the Pandora App?


Best,

Jo said...

Hehe my little guy just started to dance in recent weeks and it's so cute to watch him bob up and down. Congrats on being featured today!

Pam said...

Congrats on being SITS FB. Enjoy your day in the sun.

Maybe you HAVE to be two to know the lawn mower. I"m 45 and have absolutely no idea what you're taking about. Boy do I feel old!

MoxieMamaKC said...

That's so funny. My hubby's an actor and our daughter when she was about 3 and a half would beg to watch videos of some of the musical theatre shows he was in. My daughter knew all the choreography (sort of) to some of his big numbers...It was cute, but totally strange.

Mary Beth said...

Thanks y'all, for your wonderful comments. I have been so enjoying them on my very special "feature day!"

Helen - hahaha... the funky chicken, huh? I will consider myself lucky then =]

Blue Cotton Memory = it's so true. It's just pure joy that they just can't contain. Don't you wish we could get rid of our "filters" that keep us from acting on our pure joy?

Kelley - hahaha! "Holy Pajamas" is my new favorite saying!!! It did go something like that when I logged in and saw all of the wonderful comments.

Rachel - Have fun tonight!!! I can't wait until my little Emma is old enough for dance class. She's only 6 months though, so we've got a while still!

SE said...

Congrats on your SITS day :) Enjoy it :)

Congrats on being chosen the SITS FB today! Happy Monday

Mary Beth said...

Fabulous Finds Gal - Thanks for the encouragement.... some days I REALLY need it!

Sara - Yes, it really is the best release. At first it was hard to get motivated to go, especially with a 2 year old and a 6 month old at home, but now I couldn't imagine life without it now. Thanks for the comment on my banner.... I love that picture of him.

bec4 - I'm right there with ya!


Steph - I bet that's a sight.... too cute!!! I'd be laughing like crazy.

Lucky Mrs. T - So true! I wish I still had that!

Trendspotter- Pandora i an app on the iPhone where you put in a singer, song, or genre and it gives you a playlist of things you might like according to your search

Pam - it's so funny.... imagine the motion of pulling the cord to start a lawn mower.... that's the dance.... hahaha

Meg said...

Happy SITS day!

I think it's probably possible for males in general to be programmed to know the lawn mower and probably the shopping cart.

Mary said...

Visiting from SITS - congrats on your feature day!
