Day 2 – a new dance?

Posted by D under family

S2 and H2 dancingI consider myself very lucky. H2 stayed at daycare all day! According to their caregivers they were both a little sad all day as they miss their Mama, but other than that they appear to have had a good day. No fever, no problems. I’m so glad H2 is feeling better.

When they came home we had dinner and after that they showed me a new dance that they apparently had choreographed while I wasn’t paying attention. It all starts with rather standard moves (as you can see on the right), but then it turns into something I can only describe as an oddly semi-standing long jump competition.

You think this is hard to describe? Try taking pictures of it. I have half a dozen below that try to capture a little bit of the dynamic. Pretty amazing stuff.

Then we did their bath. And for the first time ever the girls asked for soap. And then went on to wash their own faces and try to wash their hair. All I can say is WOW. Easy bedtime (including 10 minutes more of hopping and dancing on their mattresses) and they appear to be sound asleep now.

Let’s hope that this night is better than last.

    If I didn’t know better I’d say they were preparing to audition for Dancing With the Stars on ABC.

    I’ve only seen those moves when Kieren is attacking her big brother!! The last one on the right looks like it might hurt soon! Great shots!

    Hey D, watch out this could be a new dance craze. Just like the “slam” years ago… ha ha.. They are adorable and they do look like they feel so much better.

    You appear to be doing a pretty darn good job! Proud of you papa.
