We showed Elijah the Evolution of Dance video for the first time today. I tried very hard not to laugh the first time because he was doing some of the moves with the video. The boy has as much rhythm as… I can’t even begin to compare because he is soooo in a league of his own. Maybe as an entire room of kindergartners at the same time? Everyone clapping and missing beats and keeping their own tempo.
And if that wasn’t funny enough, we watched again tonight to show a friend of Kait’s who is sleeping over. This time ALL of my kids, including Seth, got in on the act. It was cute, it was humorous to watch. But when Elijah pointed at the computer and said, “He stole that move from me” – I completely lost it! I had tear rolling down my face and I could not help myself.
It’s been a good day. Kait and I had a good morning. We spent some time together, I braided her hair for her again. Elijah & Noah slept at Gramma’s last night, so the rest of us went to run errands today. At Target, Kait got a new pen, a new math workbook and a new tanktop (less than $5 total – WOOHOO!). At Starbucks, she got a free Tangerine frap (double WOOHOO) because I had a coupon. For those wondering, yes I tried it. It’s made with their Tzao tea, no I did NOT like it. Chip and Kait thought it was great though. We went to Walmart and got groceries and then home for lunch. We spent a good part of the afternoon coloring together. Once the boys got home, we all went to the library.
It was just one of those memory building days that will stay with me forever. I love days like this!
