groovin'

Today, I figured since "Dance Dance Revolution" was going so well, I'd try my kids instructional DVD's called "Groovin' With the Groovaloo's". It breaks down and teaches hip-hop dance moves. Let's just suffice it to say, I'm apparently not hip enough to hop. Bryce tried it with me for a while but lost interest; Kate however hung out for quite a while, encouraging me with things like "Great Mom...now all you need is a little green dress and you'd look like an Irish dancer!" (Not exactly what you're going for when you're trying to do hip-hop.) After laughing hysterically she said thoughtfully, "So....who do you NOT want to know about this?? Dad?" I said I didn't care who she told (after all, there's no video - which she tried to tell me later that she had secretly video taped me! Thankfully, I called her bluff and there truly is NOT any incriminating evidence.) She said that, in that case, she planned to tell everyone...but then she determined if she did so she would be so embarrassed she'd have to wear a bag over her head for the rest of her life. So I guess this little catastrophe will remain between me, Kate & Bryce...and, oh yeah, whoever from the blogosphere happens to stumble upon this post.

That is very cute. I'm sure that will be a memory that will stick with the kids forever!

Aww, that's sweet that someone says it's a cute memory. Scarring is what came to my mind....but I'm thinking of me trying to do it! You are brave. Are you gonna be trying them moves out at Laura's reception? I will NOT be joining you - not even for the electric slide - do not even bother dragging me out!

Not hip enough to hop. Love that line. My Joel saw me getting into the pool here at Myrtle BEach and said to Sarah, "Oh, no! She's not stylish enough!"
