I’ve shared in some past parent and kid blogs that every so often the kids enjoy having a dance party, and still tap me on the shoulder to ask to crank some music to dance to.
Well, this time around, for Reygan, her opportunity for a real dance party came true.
I had the honor to be a sponsor for M. Nicholson Hip Hop Fitness- The Movement this past week and for a great cause.
I had two complementary tickets to the event and invited my mom and a friend.
My husband was suppose to watch BOTH of the kids while I attended this event…. as I was getting ready to head out I could my husband call for the kids because they were going to walk around the neighborhood…turns out someone left out on a walk with Bubs and not Rey🤔
I was suspicious 🤣🤣🤣
Oh Rey Rey…. I’m not sure what she said to her father while I was still getting ready but I’m sure she must’ve made him think that she was going to come when she found out her GiGi was going.
Listen, She cried and cried pleading for me to take her with us. In the back of my mind I knew she was going to go with me but I couldn’t help but play the game of telling her we were going to ride around the neighborhood to look for Daddy and Bubs so she could join in on their walk 😉
Honestly at that time I wasn’t even sure Kids were allowed at the event but found out at the last minute that she could come so it came as a big surprise for her and a dance party she will not forget.
Fast forward to the event…. She participated in nearly the whole thing, having to take a break for about 10 minutes and then she was right back at it. A few times during routines, she leaned over to me and said “Mommy, can I do my own thing?” She danced on her own, then followed back in with the routine, and then back on her own.
I let her do her own thing and just enjoy it all because that is sincerely what she was doing.
Looking back at it, I am happy it turned out the way it did that she came, although it was intended to be a adult only evening.
Rey definitely got her workout in and SLEPT LIKE A BABY THAT NIGHT!! I didn’t even have to snuggle with her. That pillow was her snuggling buddy.
Parents, I encourage you, once in a blue moon to invite your kiddo, who you know can handle themselves around adults, to join you on at least a hour of fun. I’m not talking about taking them to their own little kids dance class, I’m talking about a class where they get to see the parents get down and they can join in too!
It was worth it and I’d definitely do it again!!!

Her Dance Party Upgrade

Cherries 🍒!!! She LOVES them. Rich in color and antioxidants
although cherries are very nutritious and delicious they can be very tricky and eating due to the pit being inside. Fortunately Gray learn how to eat the cherry and get the pit out but for any other Littles who need help- cut the cherry, take the pit out and take off the stem. still makes for a tasty treat for kids.
