Today the girls and I danced 'til we were breathless while listening to Multiplication Rock on our cassette player. I found it at the Broomfield library yesterday. We all really liked it. We were all shouting out the answers when they were singing about multiplying by 3's. Shannon just sat and laughed at our silly dancing until I told her she had to either join us or find another room to hang out in. She joined us and we just kept right on dancing and multiplying.
I love School House Rock videos and songs. I'd like to have a whole collection of them someday. I think Shannon thought I was a little crazy dancing unselfconciously with my girls. I don't mind looking foolish if I'm having fun with my kids. Some of my best memories of my mom are of times when she would act silly with me. I liked to sleep with the radio on when I was younger. My mom would come into the room late at night and lip-synch to the music while dancing around my room in the dark. I've always loved my mom's playfulness. I hope my kids remember the same thing about me.
