Bust a move

Allow me to tell you a short story. Christmas morning a gift was unwrapped at our house that no one had requested. I can only suppose that Santa, in his infinite wisdom, saw that this would be a great fit for our family.

Well, it just so happened that the mother in our little family was quite a bit more excited about the gift than the children were so she tore it open and began to bust a move. Yes, Santa gave us Just Dance 2 for the Wii.

Oh, did the mother dance. She laughed and she danced. She sweated and she danced. She sang and she danced. Tina Turner, James Brown, Jackson name it, she danced to it. She exclaimed during the dancing that it was the most fun she had had in a long, long time.

All the while the children refused to even attempt to dance! We'll never know whether it was from fear of embarrassment or disinterest or what it was exactly that kept them from joining in the fun. All we know is that after one song the eldest son pleaded with his mother to stop dancing saying, "Mom, you're kinda scaring me. Please stop."

Unphased, the mother continued to break it down until she had nothing more to break and apparently it was contagious. Lo and behold, a few days later these pics were captured.

Strike a pose
Oh yeah!

I'd say he's converted! We're now hosting dance parties every Friday night. Come on over and cut a rug with us!
