Do you ever feel like there is one song for a Monday morning to get you going, and sometimes you're lucky enough to have your local radio station pick it out for you and play it? Well, today as I was driving Franny to school, getting ready to make a left onto Illinois from Baltimore and wiping the sleepers from my eyes, I heard that very special Monday morning energy song. Today that song was "Everybody Dance Now" by C & C Music Factory. I always wonder what my kids are thinking when they watch me start dancing in the driver's seat, using the steering wheel as my own personal drum set and singing my heart out. They are probably thinking, "my mom is a freak!"
I'm curious if anyone else out there is a car dancer? I'm seriously asking. Show yourselves. I always try to get my kids to join me. It's been a slow process, but they're coming around. Sophie will sometimes try to copy my moves and I see Franny bobbing her head fairly often. I am hoping that someday one of my friends will tell me, "I saw you driving in the car and totally rocking out!" I don't think that will ever happen though because I always keep an eye on the road (good thing, right?) and as soon as I see a car that looks familiar I stop what I'm doing, put on my mom face, and calmly smile and wave as I pass my fellow mini-van. I should be true to myself.
EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!
Since I know you are dying to hear that song now I'm including a little playlist featuring that song along with some others from my youth. Enjoy!
I'm so happy right now.
