Dancing Baby

A few weeks ago I was rummaging through Baby J’s toys looking to wean out the ones he doesn’t play with anymore that could be move into storage, I came across his musical drum which wasn’t working, just as I was about to throw it out, Hubby suggested trying new batteries in it, which of course worked, Baby J immediately came over and claimed the drum and demonstrated to us all how it worked [ah yes the annoying toy was working again, now I remember] later on that evening  Baby J was playing with the drum, and surprised us all by standing up and dancing to the music, it was such a lovely sight as he clambered to his feet and sway along to the music, waving his arms like a mad thing and nodding his head. When the music stopped he leaned down and smacked the drum to start it once more, and so continued his dancing. I love the innocence of children, where they can express themselves freely without fear of being judged or criticised. As an adult I avoid dancing at all costs in public, and save my moves for the dance floor at home.  With Baby J’s new love for grooving both Daddy and I join in and wave our arms around and swaying, he loves it when we join in and giggles loudly, and we all know there is no better sound than a child giggling…. Happy days
