Diggin' the Dancing Queen

Last night Ali and I turned on the Roland digital piano and stuck in some of our midi-discs and sang our little hearts out. It was more fun than pretty. We would add our little "ows" and "Xena calls" and had each other laughing. We would make up our own words to some of the songs just to make each other laugh. One of our favorite discs to sing to is "ABBA." I know. I know. Some people consider that child abuse. Mimi is catching on and loves singing ABBA too. Her friends come over and they have no idea what she is singing.

So.....then we make up funny dance moves and Ali does the "booty shake." Can I just say no one does it like Beyonce? We just do not have the right genes. Her dancing far surpasses my dancing and I could hurt myself with some of the moves she did. I haven't danced since the late 80's. Our purpose in dancing - to make the other person laugh.

It was fun "playing" with my daughter. I always love the one on one time I get with each of them. When I got home from work today Mimi and her friend were outside and she tells me, "We're playing 'Princess and Servant.' Lauren is the princess and I'm the servant." I said, "I want to play, but I want to be the princess." They said no.

Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only 17. ABBA rocks! Seen Mama Mia yet? I haven't because my husband thinks musicals are totally embarrassing. But I hope the when it finally comes out on DVD it has the sing along version, and I'll teach my little ones ALL the words!
