Just Dance. Or Run. Or Point, Depending On Your Preference.

Photobucket

One time, when I was a little girl, my dad told me to stop running around the house.

I said, "I'm not running.  I'm dancing."

He said, "No, you're not.  You're running."

And I replied, with just a little bit of disdain in my voice, "Dancing is running."

He still teases me about it to this day.  And I don't blame him.  "Dancing is running!" How silly is that??

Because clearly, dancing is not just running.  It's running with wacky facial expressions.  And pointy fingers.  And just the right amount of attitude.  And maybe a little bit of an overbite, if you can manage it.

Just ask Ashley.  She has even more natural dancing talent than me, and that's really saying something.

I swear, if I could get my kids' moves on film - I'd have books of bribery! The finger pointing and 'over bite' - the bootay shaking. Did I mention they're boys? yah. love it!

The commenter who mentioned Elaine is dead-on!! Love those pics.

When I was 5, my mom was doing laundry on her bed. I jumped onto the bed, grabbed the post, and started skipping in place.

"Laura stop jumping on the bed."

"I'm not jumping, I'm skipping!"

Then I fell off the bed and fractured my arm. Lesson learned.
