Dance n' Beats with my "Amazing Dancer"

This week brought about some pretty treacherous weather. And by treacherous I mean weather that Southern California is not used to or prepared for but that is probably quite normal for other places.

Because of this hail and wind and rain, we've had to stay inside a lot. Staying inside a lot leads to cabin fever, especially in four year-old boys who have a lot of energy to burn. 

I took out the Dance n' Beats for this month's theme of baby animals, and the kids whirled and twirled and were able to work out a lot of that energy. They even went through it a second time, right after the first. 

Tiny B was sooooo disappointed that I didn't get our dress up clothes out of the garage and therefore she was unable to wear her tutu just like the girl in the video, but after some deep sighs (she would have rolled her eyes at me if she knew how) she was able to get right back into her dancing. 


Four days later we went to Disneyland where there was an outdoor concert. Strong B told me that his "brain sent me a message and told me that I was an amazing dancer" and I must admit that I attribute Mother Goose Time and Dance n' Beats for his new found confidence! I love these cute little stories about them and wish that it was possible to record every adorable anecdote in a book without me going insane. I don't think that's possible, so I'll have to remember the stories that I can and write down some of them here, in my blog.

I keep hearing that their childhood is over in a blink. So don't blink.

It doesn't feel like that but I have to trust that these people who say these things know something. I'm so thankful for things like Dance n' Beats which allow me the opportunity to create sweet little opportunities, and therefore stories, in their life.
