Can't Stop the Dance...

Just as many parents get excited about their child learning to walk, I was excited about a Lucy milestone yesterday. We had our block party last night, which was a huge success. I told Lucy earlier in the day of this party and by "quiet time" she was working on some sort of dance with her ghetto blaster* in the basement:

"Mom? I am going to do a dance show at the party tonight. Can you bring a few chairs around? Watch this one, mom...I like to call this "the cowboy."
(Does fully choreographed dance moves)
"Now mom? Can you get me some paper? I need to make tickets."

Sure enough, she brought the tickets, ghetto blaster and her dancing feet to the block party. Sadly, the older girls had their own plan, while belting out the Jonas Brother's lastest tune on the porch with a real radio. But that didn't stop Lucy...she recruited Tommy and her friend Annie to dance-off to "the cowboy song" and didn't mind that I was her only audience.

*And by "ghetto blaster," we are talking the plg radio toy she has had since she was 6 months old.

That's an awesome story. I would have been front and center for the 'Cowboy' dance-off.

This was a great block party. It is great to have all of these fun neighbors/friends.

I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian.
