Song and Dance

Recently I went to the musical film "Mamma Mia" and watched a story unfold while the actors bursted out in song whenever they felt like it. I've decided this approach to conversation would be much more entertaining and meaningful. I mean, yes, it is ridiculously cheesy,...but still.
Any time Noah hears music (on TV, in an elevator, on the radio) he feels the sudden urge to bust a move! He has to be dancing. Even in sacrament meeting while the congregation is singing hymns,..he starts swinging his arms and bending his legs getting as low as he can. Most small children have the itch to dance so I am convinced it is a human impulse that adults have simply learned to ignore (or control). Now how lame is that?
I'm thinking we should all break out in song and dance every now and then. Watch out! My impulse might just happen while in conversation with you! ;)

  3. Oh, I love it! Noah is super cute shaking his little booty. I love little baby dances. Tyler's new thing is leading the music in church. Didn't Mamma Mia make you want to go live on an island and sing all day? So when does Brad take the test for grad school?
